British Academy Newton International Fellowships

Are you interested in emotional politics ? Apply with the Centre for the Politics of Feelings for the Newton International Fellowship 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. While we will soon offer three fellowships funded by the Centre, we also wish to raise awareness about other funding opportunities such as the Newton International Fellowships.

The British Academy has just announced the call for the next round of the Newton International Fellowships. These are aimed at early career-researchers (no more than 7 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) who are non-UK citizens and are currently working outside UK.

The aims for the Newton International Fellowships scheme are to:

  • Support the development and training of postdoctoral researchers at an early stage of their career from any country outside the UK, by providing an opportunity to work at a UK research institution for two years.

  • Ensure the best postdoctoral researchers across all relevant disciplines from around the world are supported in the UK.

  • Foster long-term relations between Newton International Fellows and the UK research base through the establishment of an alumni programme for former Fellows of this scheme.

If you are interested in having the Centre as a Host institution please get in touch with Manos Tsakiris (manos.tsakiris @

The British Academy deadline is 14th June 2021, and more information can be found here :
