British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships Competition 2016-17
Applications for hosting at the Centre of Latin American Studies, University of Cambridge
Deadline: 27 July 2016
The Centre of Latin American Studies (CLAS), University of Cambridge, invites applications for hosting from applicants for British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships, to be taken up from October 2017.
Applications are welcome from Latin Americanists working in any eligible field supported by the British Academy. Successful applicants would be asked to make a modest contribution to teaching on the MPhil in Latin American Studies, within their chosen area of research. They would be expected to play a full part in the thriving research community based at CLAS, and to live in or near Cambridge during the week in termtime, unless carrying out fieldwork. They will have access to world-class research facilities and a range of opportunities for training and career development.
The BA deadline for outline applications is expected to fall in early October, and application forms will soon be available via the Academy’s website. For more information, see: http://www.britac.ac.uk/british-academy-postdoctoral-fellowships. Please check the eligibility criteria carefully, and contact the Academy direct if you have any queries on this front.
Applicants who wish to be considered for hosting at CLAS should send a CV and an outline of their project (approx. 1000 words) by 27 July 2016 to the Director of the Centre, Dr Joanna Page (firstname.lastname@example.org). They should also arrange for two references to be sent by the same deadline, one of which should be written by their PhD supervisor, and the other by the person who will act as referee for the BA application (not the applicant’s PhD supervisor, and usually someone from another institution). We regret that applications arriving late or with one or more references missing cannot be considered.
