The Alan Pearsall Bequest and the Institute of Historical Research will offer a one-year postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Naval and Maritime History, tenable at the Institute.
The Fellowship will be awarded to a graduate who expects to have submitted their doctoral thesis in Naval and Maritime History (broadly defined) by 1 October 2011. It is a strict condition of the Fellowship that the thesis should have been submitted by that date. Applications are encouraged for work on any aspect of Naval and Maritime History, in the broadest sense, anywhere in the world, from the fall of the Roman Empire in the West up to the present day. Applicants may be of any nationality, and their PhD (or equivalent) may have been awarded in any country. Those who have previously held another postdoctoral research fellowship are not eligible. The Fellowship may not be held in conjunction with any other maintenance award, nor can it be deferred until a future academic session.
The Alan Pearsall Bequest and the Institute of Historical Research will offer a one‑year postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Naval and Maritime History for the session 2011–12, tenable at the Institute. The Fellowship stipend will be £22,000 for the full session. It will be payable in four quarterly instalments through the Institute. Candidates who are not British nationals may require a visa, and, if so, must ascertain what category of visa is most suitable for them. The University of London is licensed to issue sponsorship certificates for Tier 5 visas. If Fellows need to enter the UK under a Tier 5 visa, they should apply for a sponsorship certificate through the IHR Fellowship Office, which they can then use in their visa application to the Home Office.
