Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships 2018
Deadline: Thu 1 Mar 2018
Provides career development opportunities for those at a relatively early stage of their academic careers with a proven record of research.
Offering 50% 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. 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 2018. Fellowships can be held at universities or at other institutions of higher education in the UK.

The Trust will contribute 50% of each Fellow's total salary costs up to a maximum of £25,000 per annum and the balance is to be paid by the host institution. Given the prestige of the awards each Fellow may request annual research expenses of up to £6,000 to further his or her research activities.

Fellowships are tenable for three years on a full-time basis. They must commence between 1 September 2018 and 1 May 2019.
