The Arts and Humanities Research Council invites applications for its leadership fellows scheme. This enables early-career researchers to undertake focused individual research alongside collaborative activities which have the potential to generate a transformative impact on their subject area and beyond. Proposals must include collaborative activities to support the development of the fellow’s capacity for research leadership in the arts and humanities.
Principal investigators must be within eight years of the award of their PhD or equivalent professional training, or be within six years of their first academic appointment. They must have at least two years of postdoctoral experience. Applications must include a host organisation, which may be a UK higher education institution, a research institute or an independent research organisation. Co-investigators are not permitted.
Funding is worth between £50,000 and £250,000 over a period of between six months and two years.
