There are various Fellowships available at UEA. Please see below details of any Fellowships currently being advertised.
The British Centre for Literary Translation (BCLT) is offering two four-month residencies for UK-based literary translators, to run from 1 February 2024 to 31 May 2024.
The residencies have been devised as a collaboration between the translators-in-residence and the BCLT, whose main activities focus on the promotion of literary translation both as a professional activity and an academic discipline. We will work with the chosen translators in the first week of their residency in order to shape the role in accordance with their individual interests and skills.
A stipend of £3,200.00 is available as remuneration for each residency, intended to cover any travel and accommodation costs incurred during the residency. There will also be a small budget to support developing activities. This stipend may be subject to tax.
How to Apply:
Please send the following documents:
a covering letter explaining why you are interested in becoming a translator-in-residence at the BCLT (no more than 400 words)
a proposal (not more than 300 words) outlining what ideas and activities you would plan to pursue during your time as translator-in-residence
Please send your application by 23.59 on 30 November 2023 preferably by email to: email@example.com
Interviews are likely to take place online on Thursday 14th December 2023.
The Faculty of Arts and Humanities invites applications for Early Career Fellowships to be held at the University of East Anglia (UEA), to start between 1 September 2024 and 1 May 2025. Early Career Fellowships aim to provide career development opportunities for those who are at a relatively early stage of their academic careers, but who have a proven record of research. The expectation is that Fellows should undertake a significant piece of publishable work (but should not be a reworking or extension of the doctoral research project) during their tenure, and that the Fellowships should lead to a more permanent academic position.
Each year the Faculty supports a limited number of applications for projects in: the School of Art, Media, and American Studies; the School of History; the School of Literature, Drama, and Creative Writing; the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language and Communication Studies, Interdisciplinary Institute for the Humanities, the Sainsbury Centre, the Sainsbury Research Unit and the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Culture.
Successful applicants will join a vibrant community of postdoctoral research fellows. UEA is fully committed to supporting the scholarship and career development of these fellows, and each will be assigned an academic mentor and will be fully integrated into the life of their host School / unit.
