British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme,
UCL School of European Languages, Culture and Society (SELCS).
The UCL School of European Languages, Culture and Society (SELCS) welcomes applications from outstanding scholars for the British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme. Details of the Fellowship scheme for awards commencing in the academic year 2013-14 may be retrieved from the British Academy website.
Together with its sister School, SSEES (the School of Slavonic and East European Studies), SELCS offers degrees that include the study of some 20 languages (Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Faroese, Hungarian, German, Icelandic, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Serbian/Croatian, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, and Ukrainian) and of the politics, history, film and other aspects of the cultures associated with these languages. SELCS and SSEES encourage interdisciplinary and cross-departmental research. The resources for research in the Bloomsbury area, where UCL is located, are internationally renowned.
SELCS currently (1 September, 2013) has three postdoctoral fellows.
Prospective applicants should contact a member of SELCS academic staff to discuss their proposed project and the possibility of applying through the School. The member of staff will, if both parties agree, act as the applicant’s mentor.
The application procedure is in two stages. The Briitish Academy’s deadline for outline applications, for award in 2014, is 9 October 2013. To meet this deadline, prospective applicants must have agreed their outline application with their SELCS mentor by 1 October, 2013.
