The University of Birmingham, UK, is advertising 25 Birmingham Fellowships for high-flying postdoctoral candidates. These exceptional positions provide five years of protected research time followed by a permanent position. Applications are invited from candidates in the UK and overseas. Applications are invited in all fields, both within the advertised priority areas and outside – the most important criterion is research excellence. Medievalists may be interested in applying under Language Text and Performance or several of the other themes.
Interested candidates should email the contact person in their chosen priority area or, if none of these areas is suitable, the email contact for people outside the priority areas. The closing date is 27 August 2012. Full details at http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/staff/excellence/fellows/index.aspx
