Department of Economics, University of Oxford call to host BA Postdoctoral Fellowships (36 month Fellowship)

The British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships is a three year award made to an annual cohort of outstanding early career researchers in the humanities or social sciences. This scheme provides funding to cover the costs of a 36 month fellowship at a host institution of your choosing. The purpose of this award is to enable the award holder to pursue an independent research project, towards the completion of a significant piece of publishable research.

Applicants must be supported by the UK Host institution in which they wish to hold the fellowship and Department of Economics at the University of Oxford is keen to support proposals from able young researchers whose planned research fits well with the interests of our Department’s Faculty. 

The call for proposals for the 2019-20 round will open on 21 August 2019, with the deadline for submission of outline applications on 16 October 2019. Eligible candidates must be within three years of the award of a doctorate (this means being awarded via a viva voce examination between 1 April 2017 and 1st April 2020). Applicants must be either a UK/EEA national, or have completed a doctorate at a UK university. Those with a permanent academic post are ineligible to apply. Further details may be found at
