The Cadbury fellows will have time to use the University’s excellent library resources, discuss their work with academic staff and postgraduate students at DASA, and contribute to the intellectual life of the department by participating in the numerous events that will be organised here during the period of the fellowships.
Fellowships will cover return air-fare, accommodation and living costs for a period of six weeks.

They should be in the early stages of their academic careers (that is, they should have completed a PhD within the last four years, or now be close to completing one) and they must demonstrate that their research is relevant to the theme outlined above.
The fellowship programme will begin on or after 27 April 2020. It will finish between 24 May and 6 June 2020. The three-day international conference is scheduled for 21, 22 and 23 May 2020.
