The British Academy, in collaboration with the Wolfson Foundation, invites applications for its research professorships. These provide an opportunity for extended research leave to a small number of the most outstanding established scholars to enable them to concentrate on a significant research programme, while freed from normal teaching and administrative commitments. Any field of study in the humanities and social sciences is suitable to apply.
Applicants of any age and status, including professors or lecturers, may apply. In all cases applicants must have a significant track record of publications. Award holders are expected to communicate their plans and results to a broad audience.
Each award is worth £50,000 per year for three years, to cover costs of replacement teaching, with any balance available to the award holder as research expenses. The awards are not covered under the full economic costing regime.
Deadline: 23rd November 2016
