We are keen to encourage prospective Postdoctoral Fellows from outside Oxford to explore the possibility of applying through the Humanities Division, as well as those currently based here. Initially, you should make contact with the person at Oxford who you would like to be your mentor and ask if they would be prepared to undertake this role. Once they have agreed, follow the steps to obtain approval from the relevant Faculty to make the application (see below).
The British Academy runs a two stage application process each year, with the deadline for outline applications falling in late September/early October and for the second stage in February or early March the following year, for Fellowships to be taken up at the beginning of the following academic year.
Should you be interested in applying through Oxford for a BA Postdoctoral Fellowship, please note that your expression of interest application will be assessed by the relevant Faculty in the first instance. The relevant internal deadlines and requirements for each of the Faculties in the Humanities will be listed here in the summer.
(For Social Sciences, please contact the relevant departmental administrator: https://socsci.web.ox.ac.uk/research-support-in-departments).
