Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships

The Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship Competition 2020  is now open. The Leverhulme Trust provides only half of the salary of each ECF over a three-year period, up to a maximum of £25,000 in each year (plus a contribution to research expenses); the other half of the salary must be provided by the institution at which the grant will be held. The Isaac Newton Trust will match the Leverhulme award in support of individuals who successfully apply for Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships to be held at the University of Cambridge starting in 2020-21. There will be an internal competition within Cambridge to determine which applications can be supported with match-funding from the Isaac Newton Trust. Applicants to  CRASSH should be seeking to pursue projects that are interdisciplinary in nature and of a kind that would make it unlikely they could be pursued elsewhere in Cambridge. Please click here for information from the Newton Trust on how to apply. An application for the internal competition consists of:

a cover sheet
a brief c.v. (not exceeding two sides), and
a draft of the three items required for the Leverhulme application:

a list of your major publications (maximum one side)
a statement of your current research (maximum 250 words) and
a detailed statement of your proposed research (maximum two sides).

Applicants wishing to hold a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship in CRASSH should send these materials to fellowships@crassh.cam.ac.uk, by 13th December 2019. Supported applications must be received by the Leverhulme Trust by 4 pm on 27th February 2020.  The Trust will inform candidates and departments of those selected in good time for them to be able to apply for a Leverhulme award by this deadline.
