The final deadline for Expressions of Interest is 5pm on Friday 6th January 2023.

About the scheme

The aim of the Early Career Fellowships scheme is to enable early-career researchers with a research record – but who have not yet held a full-time permanent academic post – to undertake a significant piece of publishable work.

The scheme is open to individuals who hold either a degree from a UK higher education institution, or a non-permanent role (e.g. fixed-term lectureship) at a UK higher education institution which commenced no later than 4 months prior to the scheme closing date (23 February 2023).

Those who do not hold a UK degree and whose UK academic position commenced after October 2022 are not eligible.

Candidates must also have submitted their doctoral thesis for examination not more than 4 years prior to the scheme closing date (23 February 2023).

Please check the eligibility and person specification guidance in the scheme notes to establish suitability for the scheme (https://www.leverhulme.ac.uk/early-career-fellowships)

Successful applicants will receive a salary for three years (or longer in the case of part-time Fellows) and a budget for research expenses (up to £6,000 per annum).
