De Montfort University’s International Centre for Sports History and Culture is open to individuals outside the UK who would be interested in applying for the British Academy International Fellowship (click to access page).

This programme, run jointly with the Royal Society, provides support for outstanding early career researchers to make a first step towards developing an independent research career through gaining experience across international borders. The International Fellowships programme attract the most promising early career postdoctoral researchers in the humanities and social sciences from around the world. The Fellowships enable researchers to work for two years at a UK research institution with the aim of fostering long term international collaborations.


Applicants must hold a doctoral degree with no more than seven years active full-time postdoctoral experience, or be in the final stage of their PhD provided that it will be completed (including viva) before the start date of the fellowship award (or have equivalent research experience). Additionally, applicants must be working outside the UK and not hold UK citizenship at the time of application. Applicants must have a clearly defined and mutually-beneficial research proposal agreed with a UK host researcher.

While the deadline for this Fellowship is March 13, DMU has an earlier internal deadline to obtain full university support and approval.  We realize this is short notice, but if any scholars are interested in this opportunity for this year, or would like to discuss the possibility of applying in 2025, please contact Dr. Heather Dichter at heather.dichter@dmu.ac.uk
