Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships Scheme 2014

Information for Prospective Applicants

If you wish to apply for a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship at the Faculty of English or in the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic, please note that match funding for the Scheme at Cambridge is provided by the Isaac Newton Trust. Consequently, there is a pre-selection competition for candidates intending to apply for Leverhulme awards, which takes place in advance of the Leverhulme’s deadline of 6 March 2014.

Instructions for applicants

Applications should consist of the following documents:

Applicants should send an electronic copy of their application to the Faculty Administrator. The deadline for receipt of applications is 5pm on Thursday 9 January 2014.
A shortlist of applications will be agreed within the Faculty and Department for onward consideration by the Newton Trust for match funding.  Applicants who are not shortlisted will be informed by 31 January, 2014.  The outcome of the Newton Trust pre-selection competition will be known two or three weeks after that, to allow for successful candidates to finalise their submissions in time for the Leverhulme’s deadline.

If you have any queries about this process or timetable, please contact the Faculty Administrator either by email or by phone on +44 (0)1223 335655.
