Science and Heritage Post-doctoral Fellowships Call
15 June 2009
The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) are taking forward a joint £8.1m programme entitled Science and Heritage to support leading-edge research which will explore new ways to understand the cultural and physical nature of heritage and to prepare society for the challenges that cultural heritage will face in the 21st Century.
As part of this Science and Heritage programme, AHRC and EPSRC are offering Post-doctoral Fellowships to enable outstanding early career researchers to establish independent research careers in heritage science. Potential candidates should have up to, but no more than the equivalent of five years’ post-doctoral experience. The fellowships will be for a duration of three years full time (up to 5 years part time) and will primarily cover the salary costs of the Fellow, travel and subsistence and consumables.
Funding is available to support between four and six Post-doctoral Fellowships.
AHRC is administering this call on behalf of AHRC and EPSRC.
The deadline is 4pm Thursday 10 September 2009
