Two Early Career Research Fellowships are available as part of the ‘Religion and Minority: lived religion, migration and marginalities in secular societies’ project.

Religion and Minority is a collaborative project between The University of Manchester (PI: Dr Erica Baffelli) and Toyo University (Professor Takahashi Norihito), supported by the UKRI ESRC-AHRC UK-Japan SSH Connections Grant Scheme.

The aim of the research group is to develop a long-term collaboration between researchers based at UK and Japan universities working on ‘religious minority’ and on minority groups inside religious organisations.

Two Early Career Research Fellowships starting between May 2019 and January 2020 are available to recent PhD graduates to conduct two months of research in either Japan or the UK as part of the research project.

More information about the project, the fellowships and how to apply is available in the following documents:

The deadline for applications is 5pm UK time on 1 March 2019.
