Postdoctoral Fellowships


The Society for Renaissance Studies invites applications for its Postdoctoral Fellowships, which support research in all aspects of Renaissance Studies. There will be two Postdoctoral Fellowships awarded in the academic year 2018-19.


The Fellowships are worth £8000 and in normal circumstances should not be held in conjunction with a postdoctoral or academic teaching post which is for more than 60% of a full-time post. Applicants must be graduates of British or Irish universities, and currently engaged in full-time research, part-time teaching or independent scholarship. Applicants must either already have been awarded their PhD no more than five years before 1 October 2018, or have been provisionally awarded their PhD by 31st May 2018, subject to no more than minor corrections, which must be due to be completed and accepted by the awarding University no later than 1 October 2018. Such candidates will need to provide evidence of the status of their PhD when applying.


The period of tenure is twelve months from 1 October. Fellows are required to become members of the SRS and will be invited to attend meetings of the Society’s Council. They will also be asked to present their findings at the end of the period of award. They are required to submit a written report for publication in the Society’s Bulletin, and to name the Society for Renaissance Studies in their affiliation in any publications and conference papers presenting the research.


Applicants should submit a 1,000 word project description, a CV (including a brief account of their research to date, and a statement of their proposed means of financial support during the year of the fellowship), and proof of status of PhD (where relevant) by 31st May 2018.


Their two referees should upload references by 31st May 2018
