Applications are invited for an Early Career Fellowship at the British School at Athens for 2-3 months in the academic year 2021-22 in any branch of the arts or sciences related to Greece. The Fellowship is non-stipendiary, but accommodation and airfare and reasonable travelling expenses are provided. The Early Career Fellow will be required to submit a report on his/her research and a short general report on their time at the School to the School’s Council.

The Early Career Fellowship is intended to enable people in first post to spend a period of research leave in Greece. It 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 School (for example, in the form of a lecture or seminar) is welcomed. The Fellowship may be taken in either the autumn or the spring term in Athens or Knossos.

The Early Career Fellow is offered free accommodation in the Hostel and accommodation is also offered to accompanying spouse/partner, who is most welcome, at a nominal daily rate. The School will pay one return airfare London-Athens.

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).

Applicants should submit a covering letter, a Curriculum Vitae and a statement of their proposed programme of research in Greece.Applications should be sent by e-mail to:

The School Administrator, by Friday14th May 2021.
