The Past & Present Society and the Institute of Historical Research offers up to four one-year postdoctoral Fellowships in History, tenable at the Institute. Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate a broad interest in processes of social, economic, political and cultural change, as manifested in their particular field of study. The Society wishes to promote work of a kind that might be published in the journal Past & Present and its book series, which is published by the Oxford University Press.
The Fellowship stipend will be based on salary scales for the coming year. As a guideline it was worth £20, 374 during the 2014–15 academic year. It will be payable in four instalments through the Institute. Contributions to USS or other superannuation schemes on a similar scale will be made when this is requested and an arrangement can be agreed. The Society will, during the period of the Fellowship, be prepared to consider applications for help with the expenses of attending conferences. Although full funding may be provided in the case of UK-based conferences, help towards the cost of conferences elsewhere is likely to be more limited.
