Grant of the Week: Postdoctoral Bursaries from the University of Edinburgh’s Institute for Advanced Studies
The University of Edinburgh’s Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) invites applications for postdoctoral bursaries (grants) from candidates in any area of the humanities and social sciences. Applicants’ work should fall within the scope of one of the Institute for Advanced Studies’ current research themes or across disciplinary boundaries in the humanities. The bursaries are for three to nine months, within the period of September 1, 2007 through August 31, 2008. Awards will be given up to a maximum of £10,000. No teaching is required, but successful applicants may be able to supplement the bursary by contributing to undergraduate teaching programs. The institute provides office accommodations and research facilities for recipients. Applicants must have been awarded a doctorate, normally within the last three years, and should not have held a permanent position at a university. Deadline: July 13.
