CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST: British Academy Post-Doctoral Fellowships

English and Creative Writing
The British Academy’s Post-Doctoral Fellowships are three-year awards made to an annual cohort of outstanding Early Career Scholars. The aim of the Fellowships is to offer opportunities for outstanding early career researchers to strengthen their experience of research and teaching in a university environment, thus developing their curriculum vitae and improving their prospects of obtaining permanent lecturing posts by the end of the Fellowship.
Eligible candidates who are interested in coming to Huddersfield on a British Academy Post-Doctoral Fellowship are encouraged to read the relevant information at http://www.britac.ac.uk/british-academy-postdoctoral-fellowshipshttp://www.britac.ac.uk/british-academy-postdoctoral-fellowships
