Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships – call for Expression of Interest

The School welcomes applications for the Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships scheme.

Applicants are requested to complete an Expression of Interest form and return it along with a Case for Support and CV to Marie Johnson by Monday 7 December; decisions will be communicated by 14 December.

Prospective applicants should contact the member of staff whom they wish to act as their mentor.

Offering fifty per cent match-funding for the salary costs of three-year academic research position, the scheme enables early career researchers to undertake a significant piece of publishable work. Applicants must have a track record of research, but should not have held an established academic appointment in the UK. 

Early Career Fellowships aim to provide career development opportunities for those who are at a relatively early stage of their academic careers, but who have a proven record of research. The expectation is that Fellows should undertake a significant piece of publishable work during their tenure, and that the Fellowships should lead to a more permanent academic position. Approximately 100 Fellowships will be available in 2016. Fellowships can be held at universities or at other institutions of higher education in the UK.

The 2016 round will be open on 1 January 2016 with a deadline of 10 March 2016 at 4pm.
