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 Wednesday 14 December 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 50% funding of salary costs for Y1 to Y3, up to a maximum of £26k each year, plus a contribution to research expenses. To apply:
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 2023 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.
