  • Eligibility requirement:
  • The Economic History Society, in conjunction with the Institute of Historical Research, offers up to four one-year postdoctoral Fellowships in economic and/or social history, tenable at the Institute. Fellows will not be required to be resident in London but should participate in the activities of the Institute by attendance at and the presentation of a paper to an appropriate seminar series and by networking with fellow scholars. The Fellowships are open to candidates who are British citizens and/or holders of a degree from a British university. They must be affiliated with a British university for the period of their Fellowship. The Fellowships will be awarded to postdoctoral candidates who have recently completed a doctoral degree in economic and/or social history, or who will have submitted their thesis for examination by 1 October in the academic year in which the Fellowship is to be held. It is the intention of the Economic History Society to promote work of a kind that might be published in the leading refereed academic journals in economic and/or social history. Fellows will be expected to pursue research in economic and/or social history at an advanced level with a view to publication. These awards cannot be held in conjunction with any other substantial maintenance grant, nor can they be used to fund a sabbatical year for the holder of a permanent academic position. At the discretion of the Director of the Institute, Fellows may engage in teaching or other paid work for up to six hours per week. It is important that applicants demonstrate that the research proposed in their applications is in the field of economic and/or social history, both broadly defined. In addition, the Economic History Society will fund travel costs for each Fellow for up to four visits to the Institute of Historical Research during the period of his/her Fellowship, subject to the provision of receipts and the Society’s standard procedures for funding travelling expenses.
  • Application details:
  • Complete applications must be received at the Institute of Historical Research no later than 10 April 2015.
