Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships Internal Application Process 2020

Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships (ECFs) 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. These three-year Fellowships provide an exceptional opportunity to develop as an independent researcher, and will have a significant impact on future career trajectory. The expectation is that Fellows should undertake a significant piece of publishable work during their tenure, and the project put forward should therefore not be a reworking or mere extension of the candidate’s doctoral research project.

  • Approximately 100 Fellowships will be available through the Leverhulme Trust in 2020
  • The Leverhulme Trust requires host institutions to fund at least 50% of the overall Fellowship cost
  • The Faculty of Arts and Humanities is able to support seven candidates to submit their applications to the Leverhulme Trust in 2020
  • Applications will be accepted in the following fields/areas: Archaeology, East Asian Studies, English, History, Philosophy, Music, Modern Languages and Cultures, and Interdisciplinary Biblical Studies


If you are interested in applying, you must first check that you meet the Leverhulme Trust's eligibility criteria. These can be found here.

If you are eligible, and would like to apply to hold a Fellowship in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, please get in touch with the relevant Departmental contact (listed below) before 6 December 2019 to find out about the internal application process for that department/school. You will need to provide a short CV (2 pages maximum) and an expression of interest form, or any other documentation the department/school requires.
