Against a backdrop of rising US-China tensions, a Lancaster academic will conduct experiments with elite foreign policy analysts across eight countries, aimed at developing new strategies for controlling international crises in the Internet era.

Dr Andrew Chubb, of Lancaster University’s Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion, has been awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship by the British Academy to pursue his research on the role of domestic public opinion during international crises in East Asia.

Dr Chubb, who started at Lancaster in July and is also Director of Public and Policy Engagement at Lancaster University China Centre, is among 54 distinguished early-career academics to receive funding from the Academy, the national voice of the humanities and the social sciences.

The Postdoctoral Fellowships Scheme is the Academy’s flagship programme for early career academics, based at universities around the UK.

These three-year Fellowships enable outstanding early career scholars to strengthen their experience of research and teaching in a university environment. The primary emphasis is on completing a significant piece of publishable research, giving award holders a base on which to build a successful academic career.

The British Academy is the voice of the humanities and social sciences. The Academy is an independent fellowship of world-leading scholars and researchers; a funding body for research, nationally and internationally; and a forum for debate and engagement.
