[Fellowships] Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships
Early Career Fellowships
For 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
Fellowships can be held at universities or at other institutions of higher education in the UK.
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 institution.
The Trust will contribute 50% of each Fellow’s total salary costs up to a maximum of £25,000 per year and the balance is to be paid by the host institution. Each Fellow may request annual research expenses of up to £6,000 per year to further his or her research activities.
Fellowships are tenable for 3 years on a full-time basis. The Trust will support requests to hold the award part-time over a proportionately longer period for health related reasons, disability or childcare commitments.
