The Rubin Building

The Department of Political Science/School of Public Policy at UCL is now welcoming applications for the 2018/2019 British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships scheme: https://www.britac.ac.uk/british-academy-postdoctoral-fellowships. This scheme offers outstanding early career researchers the opportunity to strengthen their experience of research and teaching in a university environment. The primary emphasis is on the completion of a significant piece of publishable research, and the integration of the award holder into the community of established scholars within their field.

The Fellowship is tenable for three years starting, at the earliest, in September 2019, in a UK based University or Higher Education Institution. This scheme provides funding to cover the salary costs of a three-year fellowship at a host institution of your choosing. It also provides £6K in total towards research expenses. The application will be in two stages: the Outline Stage is open for everyone within the eligibility criteria, while the Second Stage is invitation only.

Candidates are required to send their proposal to Dr Lisa Vanhala and Monica Barbone (l.vanhala@ucl.ac.uk / m.barbone@ucl.ac.uk ) by 9am on 17 September 2018. For more instructions on departmental requirements please click here.

We recommend any potential candidate to identify an academic within the Department who would support their application and to contact them as soon as possible: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/political-science/people/academic
