Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship Scheme

The Faculty is seeking applications from final year DPhil candidates (or those who have recently completed) for the Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship scheme.

Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships are aimed to support those at a relatively early stage of their academic careers (defined as having had their viva no more than five years prior to the closing date, i.e. after 5 March 2012) but with a proven record of research.  Applications are now being sought for start dates between 1 September 2017 and 1 May 2018.  Further details are available at:

The closing date for applications is 4pm on 2 March 2017.  However, the Faculty is unable to support all applications to the scheme, and needs to select which applicants it is able to support.  Individuals hoping to apply to the scheme should therefore submit applications to by 9am on Friday 6 January 2017.

Applications should be combined into one PDF and include:

1)            a one-page CV including education, publications, any awards, thesis title and examiners;

2)            a two-page statement of research (which may use similar headings to that in the Leverhulme scheme’s notes of guidance);

3)            a 150 word abstract summarising the research for a general audience;

4)            the name of a possible mentor within the Faculty and confirmation as to whether this individual has agreed to serve as mentor.

Individuals should also ask that their proposed mentor (or another academic if a mentor has not been identified) to send a reference to by 9am on Friday 6 January 2017.

Please bear in mind that The Leverhulme Trust believes that the development of an academic career is best served by gaining experience at different institutions. Priority will be given to applicants who show evidence of mobility during their academic careers to date. The intention is to support the career development of those building an academic career within the UK.
