This training event is in two parts. It is designed for those undertaking a PhD or graduated and interested in pursuing postdoctoral and early-career fellowship and funding opportunities across the broad remit of Classics, Ancient History, Archaeology, Reception and related disciplines.

As part of the registration process you will be asked to select which regional hub you would like to attend in person for Part 2 (held at a university in that region, but open to anyone with any affiliation).

Part 1: An online information session and opportunity to hear from those that have held or have other experiences with postdoctoral and early-career schemes (see list of schemes covered and speakers below). Panellists will talk through their application experiences and provide advice for each scheme and general contextual information for postdoctoral and early-career awards. Representatives from university Research Offices will also provide guidance from an administrative perspective.

Panellists include:

  • Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship: Sam Agbamu (Reading)

Programme for 28 February

Part 2: Will take place in-person across the UK in regional hubs at collaborating partner institutions. These workshops will focus on providing hands-on feedback and workshopping time with draft proposals and applications (at any stage of development) brought by attendees. Academic staff at each regional hub will come from a range of Classics disciplines, have experience and expertise with these postdoctoral and early-career awards and be able to give both focussed and general feedback and advice. It will provide attendees with an opportunity to develop, refine and build their applications further, taking on board advice from both parts of this programme.
