Queen Mary University of London

Salary: Not Specified
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract

The School of History at Queen Mary University of London encourages outstanding postdoctoral scholars to apply to the 2021 round of the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship Scheme.

The School is a notable centre for the nurture of early career researchers. It is currently home to some 20 postdoctoral researchers, who form part of an academic community with research specialities from the medieval period through to the present day. While supporting its areas of research excellence - History of Political Thought, Medieval and Renaissance History, Modern European and British History, and History of the Emotions and Well-being - the School has also developed new strengths in Global History, the History of Material and Visual Cultures, and the theory and practice of Digital Humanities.

This year, we are inviting applications from scholars who are working on Black and Asian histories of Britain and/or histories of the Black Atlantic.

This call supports the School of History’s strategic aim to build research excellence in these fields, and we will only consider applications in them.

We will be holding a webinar for interested applicants on 19 November 2020 at 12pm. Please register here.

Because these Fellowships require an institutional contribution to match that made by the Leverhulme Trust, only a small number of exceptional applications will be supported. Applications should be sent to Dr Claire Trenery at by 5pm on 11 January 2021.

It must include in a single PDF document:

  • a statement confirming eligibility for the scheme;
  • a proposed start and end date for the award;
  • a 2-page academic CV;
  • the title of your research proposal;
  • a 250-word abstract of your research project;
  • a 250-word statement of past and current research;
  • a 2-page project outline;
  • the name of your QMUL mentor, whose support you should secure in advance of your application (please note that the School does not match applicants with mentors).

Initial enquires can be directed to Dr Claire Trenery, Research Manager at or to a prospective mentor.
