Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships
We invite researchers to submit an expression of interest for the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship with Cardiff University as the host organisation.
All candidates must hold a doctorate or have equivalent research experience upon taking up the fellowship. Only those who have not yet have held a full-time permanent academic post in a UK university or comparable UK institution will be eligible. Visit the Leverhulme Trust website for further details and full eligibility criteria.
Submit your Expression of Interest
The call for 2019 applications is closed, however we expect the scheme to run again in 2020.
To express interest in this scheme, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following details:
- your full name
- your discipline and expected host school.
We will put you in touch with your proposed host school.
As an applicant, you must ensure your host school has discussed your intention to apply well in advance of submitting an application. You are strongly recommended to express your interest in this scheme as early as possible to comply with internal school deadlines, which are typically in late 2019 or early January 2020.
Please note that the University operates a robust triage and peer review process for all applications to ensure those of the highest quality are submitted to the Leverhulme Trust.
All applications will be subject to the host school or college committing to covering the match funding requirements for the scheme.
The college of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences has indicated that match funding will be available, but this is not yet confirmed and there is likely to be a limit on the number of applications per school. We welcome expressions of interest from exceptional candidates to submit to internal peer review processes.
Schools in the colleges of Biomedical and Life Sciences (BLS) and Physical Sciences and Engineering (PSE) will be considering candidates for the scheme, and will discuss suitability with candidates. Match funding for candidates in BLS and PSE will be allocated if the School wishes to support a candidate – this will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
