British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Faculty of Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics at the University of Oxford invites expressions of interest from postdoctoral and completing graduate scholars who wish to apply for the British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme, for entry in 2022.


The Fellowships are designed to enable outstanding, recent postdoctoral scholars in the Humanities or Social Sciences to obtain experience of research and teaching in the university environment for a period of three years, to strengthen their research and teaching track record and to improve their prospects of obtaining permanent posts by the end of the fellowship. More information about the scheme will be available in due course from the British Academy and on the Oxford Humanities Division website. NB There are strict eligibility requirements and potential candidates are advised to check these carefully.


Candidates who intend to apply for a BA PDF in Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics with Oxford as the host institution are asked to submit the attached application form to no later than 23rd August 2022. There is no guarantee that applications which arrive after this date will be processed. Please note that all applicants should have secured the agreement of a potential mentor within the Faculty.
