Early Career Fellowships at the British School at Athens are offered for up to 3 months for research in any branch of the arts or social sciences related to Greece. The Fellowship is non-stipendiary, but accommodation and airfare are provided, either to Athens or Knossos. Early Career Fellowships are intended to enable those academics in their first permanent academic post (i.e. not a research fellowship or fixed-term appointment) to spend a period of research leave in Greece. They may, for example, be used to enhance a period of sabbatical or Research Council funded leave. Fellows will be expected to conduct a programme of original research: the appointment carries no further formal obligations, although involvement in the academic life of the BSA (for example, in the form of a lecture or seminar) is welcomed. The Early Career Fellow is required to submit a report covering their research and their time at the BSA to the School’s Council. The Fellowship may be taken in either the autumn or the spring term in Athens or Knossos. Accommodation is also offered to an accompanying spouse/partner, at a nominal daily rate.
Applicants are advised to contact in advance of developing a proposal the relevant member of staff should they wish to include: BSA material (Archivist), Museum material (Assistant Director), Knossos material (Knossos Curator), Fitch Laboratory collections and facilities (Fitch Director) or need permissions to visit sites or study material (School Administrator).
Applications should submit a covering letter, statement of their proposed programme of research in Greece and a Curriculum Vitae.
