2022 Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships – call for applications

Applications are now open.

The School of Media and Communication is considering applications for the 2022 Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships scheme.

Applicants are requested to send a two-page statement of proposed research, CV, and statement of support from the mentor (see below) to Dr Kristofer Erickson (K.Erickson@leeds.ac.uk) by Monday 6 December 2021; decisions will be communicated by Friday 17 December 2021. Full drafts of selected applications will be subject to internal review in January 2022.

Prospective applicants should contact the member of staff whom they wish to act as their mentor.

Early Career Fellowships aim to provide career development opportunities for those who are at a relatively early stage of their academic careers, but who have a proven record of research. The expectation is that Fellows should undertake a significant piece of publishable work during their tenure, and that the Fellowships should lead to a more permanent academic position, either within the same or another institution.

Fellowships are tenable for three years on a full-time basis. The Trust will support requests to hold the award part-time over a proportionately longer period for health-related reasons, disability or childcare commitments.

Full information for this round.

The 2022 round will be open on 1 January 2022 with a deadline of 24 February.
