  • Eligibility requirement:
  • The Alan Pearsall Bequest and the Institute of Historical Research will offer a one-year postdoctoral Fellowship in Naval and Maritime History for 2015–16 tenable at the Institute. Applications are encouraged for work on any aspect of Naval and Maritime History, in the broadest sense, anywhere in the world, from the fall of the Roman Empire in the West up to the present day. The Fellowships will be awarded to postdoctoral applicants who have recently completed a doctoral degree in 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 a strict condition of the Fellowship that the thesis should have been submitted by that date. Applicants may be of any nationality, and their PhD (or equivalent) may have been awarded in any country. Those who have previously held another postdoctoral research fellowship will not be eligible. The Fellowship cannot be held in conjunction with any other substantial maintenance grant. A condition of the award is that Fellows should undertake further historical research and writing. Fellows will not be required to be resident in London, but should participate in the activities of the Institute, by regular attendance at and presentation of papers to appropriate seminars and by giving information and help to fellow scholars working in the same field. At the discretion of the Director of the Institute, Fellows may engage in teaching or other paid work for up to six hours a week (note however that some categories of non-national may need to obtain a work permit in order to undertake this). The Fellowship stipend will be £23,000 for the full academic year, and will be payable in four instalments through the Institute. No additional research funding is attached to this Fellowship.
  • Application details:
  • Complete applications must be received at the Institute of Historical Research no later than 11 April 2015.
