Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies


The British Academy invites applications for Global Professorships 2022 programme. The scheme’s aim is to demonstrate and further enhance the UK’s commitment to international research partnerships and collaboration as well as strengthen the UK’s research capacity and capability in the humanities and the social sciences.

This programme provides mid-career to senior scholars – active in any discipline within the social sciences and the humanities and based in any country overseas – with the opportunity to work in the UK for four years. A significant feature of the programme is expected to be the contribution that these researchers will make to advancing the research goals and strategies of their host UK universities.

Each four-year appointment is intended to be a complete project in itself, and it must be entirely new (the Academy will not fund pre-existing projects). Proposals are expected to involve a specific research focus, although the British Academy does not have a preferred model for the balance of time to be spent between research and teaching. Each proposal should clearly demonstrable outcomes of value both to the career development of the individual and the strategy of their host UK institution.
