The Leverhulme Trust invites applications for its research fellowships. These enable experienced researchers to complete a piece of research in any discipline. Studies of disease, illness and disabilities in humans and animals and research that intends to inform clinical practice, or the development of medical applications are excluded from this call.
Applicants should be experienced researchers who are resident in the UK, particularly those prevented by routine duties from undertaking or completing a research programme. They should be a permanent member of the UK scholarly community and be able to demonstrate an established track record in their chosen area of research. Those residing and working overseas may not apply if they still hold the overseas appointment during the tenure of the award. Candidates who held a research fellowship more than seven years ago may reapply. Candidates who have held an international academic fellowship may apply if they applied for the previous fellowship at least three years ago.
Approximately 100 fellowships, worth up to £55,000 each over a period of three to 24 months, are available to cover research expenses, replacement costs or loss of earnings.
Deadline 7th November
