British Academy International Fellowships

Are you interested in emotional politics ? Apply with the Centre for the Politics of Feelings for the British Academy International Fellowships scheme.

At the Centre for the Politics of Feelings, we are interested in hosting promising young researchers and scholars who wish to conduct research on emotions and politics in an inter-disciplinary context.

The British Academy has just announced the call for the next round of International Fellowships. The International Fellowships Programme provides support for outstanding early career researchers to make a first step towards developing an independent research career through gaining experience across international borders. Each award is expected to involve a specific and protected research focus with the award-holder undertaking high quality, original research.

The overarching aim of the International Fellowships Programme is to attract and retain emerging talent in the UK and build a globally connected, mobile research and innovation workforce. The objectives are to:

  • Attract talented international early career researchers to establish and conduct their research in the UK.

  • Support international early career researchers to pursue high-quality and innovative lines of research.

  • Provide international early career researchers opportunities to acquire and transfer new skills and knowledge through training and career development.

  • Foster long-term relationships through networking opportunities and the International Fellowships alumni programme.

The applicant must:

  • Have a PhD, or applicants in the final stages of their PhD will be accepted provided that the PhD will be completed (including viva) before the start date of the Fellowship. Confirmation of award of the PhD will be required before any Fellowship award is confirmed.

  • Applicants should have no more than seven years of active full time postdoctoral experience at the time of application (discounting career breaks, but including teaching experience and/or time spent in industry).

  • Be working outside the UK.

  • Not hold UK citizenship.

  • Be competent in oral and written English.

  • Have a clearly defined and mutually-beneficial research proposal agreed with a UK host researcher.

Applicants should ensure that they meet all the eligibility requirements, which are explained in the scheme notes.

If you are interested in having the Centre as a Host institution please get in touch with Manos Tsakiris (manos.tsakiris @ by Friday 17th of February 2023.
