Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship (ECF) Competition 2018

Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship (ECF) Competition 2018

The Warwick Law School is looking to support excellent applications for the Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship (ECF) Competition 2018. The School of Law has an excellent track record in supporting successful candidates with Leverhulme applications and we are now inviting suitably qualified candidates to support in the latest scheme. The Department will select a limited number of fellowship applications to support in the 2018 competition. These applications will be selected through a competitive internal selection process.

The 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.

Approximately 100 Fellowships will be available in 2018. Fellowships can be held at universities or at other institutions of higher education in the UK.

The 2018 round will open 1 January 2018. The closing date for applications to the Leverhulme Trust is 1 March 2018.

Applicants are encouraged to work on their proposal with their chosen mentor before submitting the application to the department.
