Leverhulme Early Career Fellows

University of Oxford - Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages

The Faculty invites applications for individuals interested in applying for a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship to start between 1 September 2017 and 1 May 2018.

The Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship scheme seeks 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. Further details (including information about eligibility for the scheme) are available at:


The Faculty is the largest Modern Languages department in the country and has a lively and active research environment, with research and teaching in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian & other Slavonic languages, Portuguese and Greek. Applicants from all of these fields are welcome to apply. More information about the Faculty is available at: www.mod-langs.ox.ac.uk

Each year, the Faculty is able to support one or two applications for the Leverhulme ECF scheme, and identifies the applicants that it is able to support through a selection process. To be considered for this, applicants should submit the following to recruitment@mod-langs.ox.ac.uk:

  • a one-page CV including education, publications, any awards, thesis title and examiners;
  • a two-page statement of research (which may use similar headings to that in the Leverhulme scheme’s notes of guidance);
  • a 150 word abstract summarising the research for a general audience;
  • the name of a possible mentor within the Faculty and confirmation as to whether this individual has agreed to serve as mentor.

Individuals are also asked to request that a referee submit a letter of reference to recruitment@mod-langs.ox.ac.uk by the closing date of 9am on Friday 6 January 2017.

Closing date: 9am Friday 6 January 2017
