The Society for Renaissance Studies invites applications for its Postdoctoral Fellowships, which support research in all aspects of Renaissance Studies.
There will be two Postdoctoral Fellowships awarded in the academic year 2017-18, to the value of £8000.
Among other topics, previous holders of the Fellowships have studied the relationship between marital harmony and health in early modern England, influence of Italian pattern books on Welsh country houses, the technical innovations in music introduced on the continent by fifteenth-century English émigré communities, the relationship between the space of the church, its decoration and the administration of charity in early modern Lutheran Germany, late medieval illuminators who worked on ornamenting early modern printed books, and the Paduan apothecary Camilla Erculiani, a rare example of a woman who wrote about scientific questions in the sixteenth century.
Applicants must be graduates of British or Irish universities, and currently engaged in full-time research, part-time teaching or independent scholarship.
Applicants must either already have been awarded their PhD no more than five years before 1 October 2017, or have been provisionally awarded their PhD by 31st May 2017, subject to no more than minor corrections.
The period of tenure is twelve months from 1 October.
