Full guidelines are available on the British Academy website.

This scheme provides full funding for a three year full-time fellowship. Applicants must be within three years of the award of their doctorate and they must be a UK or EEA national, or have completed a doctorate at a UK university, or have a strong prior association with the UK academic community.  The scheme is not open to applicants who hold or have held a permanent university post.  The primary emphasis is on completion of a significant piece of publishable research. Applicants who wish to apply for this funding through the Oxford Law Faculty must secure the support of a senior member of the Faculty as a mentor/supervisor. While the fellowship funding will allow for independent research, both the funder and the Faculty require the Fellow to have a mentor to discuss project progress and wider academic life in general on a regular basis.

The application has a two-stage application process, round one has an autumn deadline and then some applicants are invited to submit a round two application in February/March. Successful applicants would start their fellowship the following September or October. 

If you are interested in applying for this scheme, please talk to the Faculty's research support team.  Karen Eveleigh and  Elizabeth Hodges are running a workshop for potential applicants on August 1st 2018. Visit the event page for further details.
