For those of you around over the summer, this quiet time can provide a good opportunity to start developing research bids.
Staffordshire University subscribes to Research Professional. This is a great tool to help you find research funding and news. Below is a good example of an upcoming fund.
British Academy -mid-career fellowships. Support outstanding individual researchers with excellent research proposals, and promote public understanding and engagement with humanities and social sciences. The time bought by the scheme should be devoted to the completion of a major piece of research, and the Academy will also look for evidence of a clear commitment to a strategy of public engagement and communication of the results of the research during the period of the fellowship.
For scholars who have already published works of intellectual distinction or have established a significant track record as a communicator, and who are normally no more than 15 years from the award of their doctorate.
£160,000 from six to 12 months.
Deadline 14 September 2016
