LeverhulmeTrust Early Career Fellowships for Career Researchers

LeverhulmeTrust Early Career Fellowships for Career Researchers

LeverhulmeTrust Early Career Fellowships invite applications from early career researchers, with a research record but who have not yet held a full-time permanent academic post, to undertake a significant piece of publishable work.

The Fellowships are intended to assist those at a relatively early stage of their academic careers, and it is hoped that the appointment would lead to a more permanent position for the individual, either within the same or another university.
