Junior Anniversary Fellowship 2019-20

For 2019-20, we seek applications centred on the place of the humanities in the 21st century to take forward inquiry in a cross-disciplinary way, perhaps at the outermost boundaries of the humanities, arts and social sciences. £15,000 bursary available.

Digital Scholarship Postdoctoral Fellowships 2019 - 2020
These Visiting Fellowships of between three and six months are intended to encourage outstanding digitally-focussed, interdisciplinary research, international scholarly collaboration, and networking activities with a specific focus on the digital. £7,500 bursary available.

CSMCH-IASH Visiting Postdoctoral Fellowship in Modern and Contemporary History 2019-20

This three-month Fellowship is intended to encourage outstanding early-career interdisciplinary research and scholarly collaboration in the broad field of modern and contemporary history. The CSMCH has selected this year's interdisciplinary research theme as 'revolution', and applicants must address this theme. Otherwise, there is no limit on geographical area or time period, as long as the bulk of research falls within the 'modern and contemporary' period (c.1750-present). £3,300 bursary available, plus travel grants.

Library Fellowships 2019-20
Applications are invited for three to six month Library Fellowships from postdoctoral scholars in any area of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, to examine special collections held at the University of Edinburgh. The collections include archives, manuscripts, rare books, art, musical instruments and other museum collections, many of which have either not been catalogued or not fully researched, presenting novel opportunities to a wide range of scholarly disciplines. Topics for 2019-20 can include the Scottish Session Papers, archives of Thomas Nelson or Arthur Koestler, Middle Eastern manuscripts or the Malawi collections. £7,500 bursary available, plus travel grants.
