QMCECS/BSECS Early-Career Visiting Fellowship 2015-16

December 10, 2015

The Queen Mary Centre for Eighteenth-Century Studies, in conjunction wit the British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, is pleased to accept applications for its annual Visiting Fellowship for early career researchers.

 The award consists of two parts: from BSECS £400 towards travel and living expenses, and from QMCECS seven nights accommodation in Queen Mary fellows’ housing on campus at Mile End (equivalent to £350). It will normally involve the Fellow in research in libraries and archives in London, and also in making contacts with QM researchers. Your application should make clear the nature of the research you will undertake in London on the award, and its relation to your wider research project or dissertation.

The Fellowship is open to scholars of the ‘long’ eighteenth century (or any part of it) in any discipline. This award is open to early career researchers: any doctoral student at a British university in their second year of study and above, and any post-doctoral researcher normally resident in Britain, within five years of the award of their PhD.

The application form can be downloaded from a link on this page:

Please send completed applications, with a 2 page CV including a summary statement of your dissertation or research project, by email to Professor Markman Ellis, Centre for Eighteenth-Century Studies, Queen Mary University of London, London, E1 4NS: m.ellis [at]  The applications will be assessed by the centre’s governing committee.

Deadline for applications: 17 January 2016. The award must be taken up in the period February 1 to June 31 (subject to availability of accommodation).
