The CSR keenly supports Early Career researchers
We have hosted Fellowships and Research Associateships thanks to funding from the AHRC, the Leverhulme Trust, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the MHRA, and Warwick's own Institute for Advanced Study. Many of our former postdoctoral fellows and research associates have subsequently gone on to build successful academic careers.
Project-related postdoctoral fellowships, often for one, two or three years, are advertised via our own website, Warwick’s Human Resources department, and other relevant channels, such as jobs.ac.uk.
From time to time the CSR also selectively supports outstanding candidates for national and international funding schemes (such as the British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships, the Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships, Marie Sklodowska Curie, the AHRC Early Careers route or the Newton International Fellowships).
The CSR welcomes enquiries from prospective postdoctoral researchers. Before contacting us, please do check carefully the eligibility criteria and deadlines for any relevant scheme. All research proposals should fall within, or neatly complement, the current expertise and research interests of the CSR. Please see our staff list and research project pages for more details. We regret we will not be able to respond to last-minute enquiries.

Bobby is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow working on Neo-Latin literature with Professor Ingrid De Smet. His project, ‘Redesigning Time: Ovid’s Fasti and the Politics of Renaissance Poetic Calendars’, explores how Renaissance writers from across Europe used the calendar as a literary form to advance rivalling ideas about cultural identity.
