University of Cambridge - Faculty of History

Location: Cambridge

Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 25th October 2021

The Faculty of History at the University of Cambridge invites applications for Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships in History. The deadline for applications is 12pm (noon) on Monday 3 January 2022. The Faculty will put forward shortlisted candidates to the Isaac Newton Trust for match funding as required by the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship scheme.

We are delighted to consider applications in all fields of history.

Potential candidates should first contact a suitable academic host from among our existing staff; if needing guidance on whom to approach, please contact the Research Director, Dr Celia Donert at chd31@cam.ac.uk. Please note that the scheme is competitive, both at the internal stage for match funding from the Isaac Newton Trust, and then in the subsequent application to the Leverhulme Trust. The Faculty will nominate a small number of successful candidates to the University’s selection process; if awarded match funds from the Isaac Newton Trust these candidates will then go on to compete at a national level in the funding competition.

The Leverhulme Trust stipulates that institutions must operate internal competitions in advance of the Leverhulme deadlines to ensure only the most appropriate applications are submitted to the Trust. The Leverhulme Trust requires candidates to secure matching funding. The internal selection process to The Isaac Newton Trust provides 100% funding of the total salary in Y1 and 50% match funding to the total salary costs in Y2 and Y3 for the three-year fellowship:

  • Prospective candidates must complete a Cover Sheet and submit this to researchgrants@hist.cam.ac.uk before the deadline of noon on 3 January 2022.
  • Prospective candidates must also include their CV (2 A4 sides maximum), a list of publications (maximum one side of A4), a statement of your current research (maximum 250 words), and a detailed statement of your proposed research (maximum two sides of A4) as a single document in either Word or PDF.
  • Two letters of reference are needed, of which one should come from outside Cambridge. Please note that a third reference will be required for the national stage of the Leverhulme competition, but only two are required at the internal stage. Please request that your referees send their letters to researchgrants@hist.cam.ac.uk by noon on 3 January 2022.

Candidates who are successful in this internal competition for matching funds from the Isaac Newton Trust will then be asked to prepare and submit their applications to the Leverhulme Trust.

Specific guidance for the 2022 Leverhulme competition is published on the Leverhulme Trust website. For further information on eligibility and the application process, and to download the Cover Sheet, please follow this link to the Faculty’s website.
