The Faculty welcomes proposals from researchers looking to apply for the 2017 Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship scheme. Those wishing to apply should, in the first instance, make sure that they have identified and received support from a permanent post holder within the Faculty who would act as a mentor for their proposed research. Once they have done this, they should send a research proposal and CV, along with the name of their mentor, to the Faculty’s Research Director, Professor Aditi Lahiri, by the end of Friday 9th December. The Faculty will put forward two applications and those who have been chosen as nominated applicants will be informed towards the end of December, and will then work with the Humanities Division’s research team to finalise their proposal. Please note that the scheme strongly encourages applicants who are not currently based or studying at the institution in which they intend to carry out their research.
