Junior fellows

The IHR offers Junior Research Fellowships to early career researchers and to postdoctoral students near completion of their research degree. Fellowships are awarded by annual competition.

The Thornley, Scouloudi, and Royal Historical Society Fellowships are intended as writing-up awards. They will be awarded to doctoral students who are engaged in the completion of a doctorate in history (broadly defined) and who will have completed at least three years of full-time or four years of part-time research on their doctoral programme (and not more than four years’ full-time or six years’ part-time) at the beginning of the academic year in which the awards will be held. These fellowships are for a duration of six months or one year.

The Economic History Society, Past & Present, and Pearsall Fellowships will be awarded to postdoctoral applicants who have recently completed a doctoral degree in history, or who will have submitted their thesis for examination by 1 October in the academic year in which the Fellowship is to be held. The EHS and Pearsall Fellowships are for a duration of one year; Past & Present Fellowships are for a duration of two years.

The Jacobite Fellowship may be held by an advanced doctoral student or an early career postdoctoral researcher. This fellowship is for a duration of one year.
