CfA: Early Career Fellowships - Special Collections University of Manchester Library

Call for applications, deadline 14 December 2020

Fellowships are available for early career academics to develop an application for an externally funded postdoctoral fellowship (for example, through the British Academy or Wellcome Trust) to undertake a future research project using the Special Collections held in the University of Manchester Library. The purpose of the awards is to allow academics unfamiliar with either archival research or the rich holdings of The University of Manchester’s Special Collections the opportunity to identify areas of particular research promise.

Fellows will receive an allowance of up to £2,000 per month for a maximum of three months; a dedicated workspace in the John Rylands Library, and access to curatorial and grant-writing support.

*Please note that access to the Library and Special Collections is dependent on local Covid-19 restrictions which means some modification of the Fellowship terms may be needed.
