The British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship is a three-year award. It is made to an annual cohort of outstanding early career researchers in the humanities or social sciences.
The scheme is designed to enable fellows to undertake up to three years of dedicated urban studies research, following a programme of research designed and executed by the fellow.
The fellow’s research programme is expected to involve original empirical inquiry, methodological rigour and conceptual innovation, all set within a detailed knowledge of relevant existing research and scholarship. The expectation is that a fellow will publish outputs from this research in the international urban studies literature. In addition, they are to undertake serious possibilities for developing the impact of their research beyond the academy.
Applicants must have obtained a PhD within the preceding five years. In addition, they must be demonstrably involved in urban studies research, with a credible future urban studies research and scholarship programme.
There is no age criterion for these awards. Instead, eligible applicants are expected to be at an early stage of their careers. This is defined as being within three years from the date of a successful Viva Voce examination.
Each fellowship is worth up to a total of GBP £180,000 over a maximum of three years.
