British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Philosophy Faculty at the University of Oxford invites expressions of interest from postdoctoral and completing graduate scholars who wish to apply for the British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme, for entry in 2022.

The Fellowships are designed to enable outstanding, recent postdoctoral scholars in the Humanities or Social Sciences to obtain experience of research and teaching in the university environment for a period of three years, to strengthen their research and teaching track record and to improve their prospects of obtaining permanent posts by the end of the fellowship. More information about the scheme will be available presently from the British Academy and on the Oxford Humanities Division website. There are strict eligibility requirements and potential candidates are advised to check these carefully.

Candidates who intend to apply for a BA PDF in Philosophy with Oxford as the host institution are asked to submit the application form available below to no later than midday on Friday 13 August 2021. They are also asked to request that their proposed mentor sends a brief note of support to the same address by the same date.

There is no guarantee that applications which arrive after this date will be supported or processed. Further details about the application process will be found in due course on the Oxford Humanities Division’s website. Please note that all applicants should have secured the agreement of a potential mentor within the Faculty.

Please note that applications for entry in 2022 have now closed.
