Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships at UEA

The School of History at UEA welcomes expressions of interest and prospective applications for Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships from 2015.

The School of History has one of the largest concentrations of British and European historians in the UK, with interests including American and International History. It is configured into the following research clusters: landscape history; medieval history (Anglo-Norman and Angevin history; kingship – especially Edward the Confessor; Henry II; John –  royal and episcopal administration; charters; Magna Carta; hagiography and miracles; monasticism); early modern history; modern European history (with an emphasis upon state formation and national identity); modern British history (with emphases on political and cultural history and British external policy); and imperial and global history.

Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships provide full funding for researchers in the EU to come and join the School for between one and two years.  Successful Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellows will become full members of the School of History at UEA, with access to office space, computing and library facilities, and an email account.  Fellows will not be required to undertake teaching, but will be encouraged to participate in the research activities of the School.  The Fellowship covers salary and travel costs and provides a research budget.  The School does not provide accommodation, but the university will be able to assist Marie-Curie Fellows in finding somewhere suitable to live.
