Applications are invited for Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships from suitably qualified researchers wishing to base their work in the Faculty. The scheme is designed to support scholars at a relatively early stage of their careers, but with a proven record of research. Applicants must have submitted their doctoral thesis by 4pm on the closing date of 23 February 2023, and no more than four years before the closing date; so those who formally submitted their doctoral thesis for viva voce examination before 23 February 2019 are not eligible (unless they have had a career break or can make a case that their progress was impacted by Covid-19).
Fellowships are tenable for three years on a full-time basis and are intended as an opportunity to undertake a significant piece of publishable research. Further details about the scheme are available at: http://www.leverhulme.ac.uk/funding/ECF/ECF.cfm
A previous connection with Oxford is not required and the Leverhulme Trust values mobility highly. Thus applications are particularly welcome from those who are currently working elsewhere.
The Faculty will hold an internal competition to decide which application(s) will be put forward under the scheme, so applicants should not approach the Leverhulme Trust directly or open a Leverhulme application until Faculty support is confirmed in writing.
Applications should be sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 noon on Thursday 5 January 2023. Application material should be submitted as one combined PDF document.
The application should comprise:
1. A completed coversheet
2. A document consisting of
3. An indication of what additional research expenses might be planned;
In addition, you should identify a named mentor from among the permanent members of the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages, who must provide a statement of support (to be sent directly to email@example.com by 5 January 2023); and academic reference addressing the significance and originality of the proposed project and your suitability to undertake it (to be sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 January 2023).
Once the Faculty has considered the applications received, the successful applicant(s) will be supported by our Research Facilitator in the completion of the full application to the Leverhulme Trust. Please note that being selected by the Faculty does not guarantee the award of a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship, but we will work with you to ensure as strong a submission as possible.
