Post-Doctoral Fellowships & Visiting Research Fellowships
These awards enable either early career postdoctoral candidates or established scholars in university posts to spend time in the Levant region to conduct primary research, develop contacts, give lectures, and write up project results/publications derived from a thesis/research.
These awards are for team-based fieldwork proposals within the Levant. Applications should be for strategic projects that will enhance the profile of UK research in the Levant and which offer the support and commitment of the applicant’s own institution. Awards will normally be up to £5,000.
Pilot Study Awards
This is an opportunity for postdoctoral scholars to undertake initial exploratory work or a feasibility study prior to making applications for major funding to a Research Council, the British Academy or another body. To be eligible under this scheme, a project must involve an element of travel to (or from) the Levant. Awards will normally be up to £7,500.
Project Completion Awards
CBRL can assist in the completion of research projects. These could include support for additional analytical work, production of final publication manuscripts, completion project archives or repatriation of research materials.
These awards cover travel and subsistence costs for students, academics and researchers undertaking reconnaissance tours or smaller research projects in the Levant. Awards are available for both PhD students and post-doctorate applicants of a value up to £800.
