Northumbria University are inviting expressions of interest from early-career researchers who are interested in collaborating with our Faculty of Health and Life Sciences or Faculty of Business and Law, on original and high-quality research through the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship.
The scheme offers funding for outstanding early-career researchers who have not held a full-time permanent post in a UK university. Fellowships are funded for three years, with research expenses of up to £6,000 p.a.
Our collegiate research environment supports a thriving cohort of early-career academics, including those previously/currently supported by Leverhulme who are carrying out original research on an array of topics. The university has been awarded over £2.5M from Leverhulme since 2018 and we are supporting new applications in the following departments:
Applicants should contact a member of staff to establish whether their research aligns with specific areas of expertise within a chosen department (search staff profiles on our Research Portal).
Important - Leverhulme do not fund studies of disease, illness and disabilities in humans and animals, research that is intended to inform clinical practice, or the development of medical or commercial applications. Research where advocacy is an explicit component or policy-driven research where the principal objective is to assemble an evidence base for policy initiatives, is also ineligible.
Full criteria is available on Leverhulme’s homepage; applicants should read this carefully as strict conditions apply, including:
