Two applicants thus far have encountered a problem with the online form while completing the application. If you encounter this issue please start a new application to the Pearsall Fellowship, which should take you to the correct form. We apologise for this inconvenience.
The Pearsall Fellowship is a one year postdoctoral Fellowship in Naval and Maritime History. Applications are encouraged for work on any aspect of Naval and Maritime History, in the broadest sense, anywhere in the world, from the fall of the Roman Empire in the West up to the present day.
Area of research:
Naval and Maritime History in any period from the fall of the Roman Empire in the West until the 21st century.
Applicants may be of any nationality, and their PhD (or equivalent) may have been awarded in any country.
Applicants must already have submitted their doctoral thesis for examination, or be prepared to do so by 1 October of the academic year in which the award is to be held. Applicants who already hold doctorates must have been awarded them in the five years prior to October 2015.
This Fellowship is intended as a first academic post for recent doctoral graduates. Those who have previously held another postdoctoral research Fellowship will not be eligible.
