A new round of Birmingham Fellowships has just opened. Details can be found at http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/staff/excellence/fellows/index.aspx. These are exceptional opportunities for outstanding early-career researchers (for instance, they are permanent, and the terms of eligibility are quite widely drawn).
The sidebar on the main page offers sections ‘about’, ‘apply’ (including a very useful FAQ), and ‘priority areas’ (of which the one most likely to be of interest will probably be ‘Language, Text and Performance’).
Please do read the details, and, if you think this is an opportunity you’d like to look into, just click on the relevant contact email for your chosen priority area (or, if none of the areas seems to fit, use the email that’s given for people outside the priority areas).
