Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships

Aim of the award

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. Applications will be considered in all subject areas with the exception of research that is of direct relevance to clinicians, medical professionals and/or the pharmaceutical industry. Approximately 100 Fellowships will be available in 2017. Fellowships can be held at universities or at other institutions of higher education in the UK.

Level of grant and tenure

Fellowships are normally tenable for three years on a full-time basis, but requests to hold the award part-time over a proportionately longer period will be considered if this is appropriate for the nature of the research proposed and the career development of the individual. Fellowships will commence between 1 September 2017 and 1 May of 2018.
