The British Academy is inviting applications from established scholars employed in a UK institution, to apply for the British Academy/Leverhulme Senior Research Fellowship scheme which is funded by the Leverhulme Trust and administered through the British Academy.
Applications must be submitted via e-GAP, accessible at https://egap.britac.ac.uk/
Intending applicants need to register themselves in the system, if not already registered, and should access full details by following the links to ‘funding schemes’ from the personal welcome page, and then the link to the BA/Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellowships – SRF 2017.
This scheme is designed primarily to provide opportunities for scholars who have already published works of intellectual distinction and who have been hampered in their efforts to accomplish a major piece of research by heavy teaching and administrative duties with little prospect of relief from any source. The principal purpose of these Fellowships is therefore to enable concentrated effort to be directed towards completing a major piece of research, which will be an important contribution to knowledge and understanding.
Closing date: Wednesday 16 November 2016 (5pm UK time)
Results: before 31 March 2017
Earliest Start Date for Research: 1 September 2017
