Research Fellowships at the Birmingham Research Institute for History and Cultures

The newly-founded Birmingham Research Institute for History and Cultures (BRIHC) wishes to appoint two outstanding early career scholars to its two-year 2016 Fellowships. The period and topic of study is open, but candidates must clearly show how their proposed scheme of work relates to research currently undertaken within the School of History and Cultures (SHaC) – which includes African Studies, Archaeology, History, and Classics.

The appointees are expected to undertake a significant piece of independent research, and to produce research papers, manuscripts, or other outputs. During the Fellowship they are also expected to propose and write, with collaborators if necessary, grant application(s) for future and/or follow-on projects. Further, they will organise a series of research-related activities within the remit of the BRIHC, working with the Institute’s Director or other members of staff within SHaC.

Candidates should outline their proposed scheme of work, broadly indicating the general themes, individuals, or research clusters they intend to work with, and give specific indications of their future plans for research in terms of applications, outputs and BRIHC activities (max. 2 pages).

BRIHC Fellowships are open to scholars of any nationality.
