The John Rylands Research Institute at The University of Manchester invites applications for this year’s round of British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships, for a fellowship beginning in September 2017.

The Institute offers an exciting and stimulating environment for research, and has an outstanding record of success in hosting BA Postdoctoral Fellows. Projects must demonstrate a strong connection to the University of Manchester Library’s Special Collections. More information can be found here: http://www.jrri.manchester.ac.uk/research/collections/

For your application to be considered by the Institute, please submit an expression of interest (500 words summary of the proposed project and a 1 page CV) to the Institute Administrator Anna Higson by Friday 2 September 2016. If you are selected by the Institute, you will be provided with full support in making your application to the British Academy.
