New Fellowship Opportunity: Scottish Arts and Humanities Alliance

In partnership with the newly-established Scottish Arts and Humanities Alliance (SAHA), the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Edinburgh is offering a Postdoctoral Fellowship for 2021-22 of up to 10 months, accompanied by a bursary of £1,300 per month. Proposals should address the arts and humanities research dimensions of at least one of SAHA’s areas of strategic priority within a Scottish context:

  • Advocacy for the arts and humanities
  • Climate change
  • Education policy
  • Post COVID-19 society

The overall aim of this Fellowship is to exemplify, in a Scottish context, the value of arts and humanities scholarship.

The Scottish Arts and Humanities Alliance (SAHA) is a joint initiative of ten Scottish Higher Education institutions, the Royal Society of Edinburgh, and the Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities. It was established to give a public and collective voice to the Arts and Humanities in the context of Higher Education and will also make connections as appropriate with work at a UK level to promote the value of SHAPE (social sciences, humanities and the arts for people, the economy / the environment).

The closing date for the receipt of applications is 28 May 2021. Please visit to find out more and to make an application.
