10/05/2021 Newton Fellowships for recent PhDs
Professor Maksymilian Del Mar, a colleague from the School of Law, Queen Mary University of London, informs us that the British Academy has recently released a call for Newton International Fellowships. These are highly competitive and prestigious 2-year fellowships for recent doctoral graduates (within 7 years of their Ph.D.) currently working outside of the UK, and who want to spend time researching in the UK. The deadline is 16 June. Anyone who is interested in applying for the Fellowship to be hosted at Queen Mary University of London is welcome to make informal inquiries to Prof. Del Mar: Prof Del Mar would especially welcome inquiries from exceptional PhD graduates with an interest in working at the intersection of law, literature and philosophy. As the deadline is short, anyone interested would need to email with a CV, and a 2-page idea for the Fellowship project by Monday 17 May.
