John Rylands Research Institute Visiting Early Career Research Fellowships

The Institute is pleased to announce the call for this new Fellowship opportunity.

Visiting Early Career Research Fellowships are an opportunity for applicants currently completing, or within two years of the award of their doctorate, to work on an application for an externally funded postdoctoral fellowship (for example, from the British Academy, Leverhulme Trust or Wellcome Trust) to conduct a future research project using The University of Manchester Library’s Special Collections. It is intended to allow those unfamiliar with either archival research or Special Collections, or specifically the rich holdings of The University of Manchester’s  Special Collections, to identify areas of particular research promise for them, and, with the assistance of a skilled grant writer, to produce an application for a postdoctoral fellowship which would be focused on the holdings of the Library’s  Special Collections and would be held at the John Rylands Research Institute for the duration of the fellowship.  

Further details on how to apply and application deadline can be found on the Institute website.
