The Department of Politics and International Relations is inviting applications from scholars seeking to be supported in making an application to the Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship Scheme. We will work with the selected candidates to help them develop a proposal to the scheme, and to fulfill the institutional match funding requirements. You can find out more about the scheme here: https://www.leverhulme.ac.uk/early-career-fellowships 

These fellowships are intended to help early career researchers, with a research record but who have not yet held a full-time permanent academic post, to undertake a significant piece of publishable work. Interested potential applicants are encouraged to contact a suitable member of staff who could act as a mentor in the first instance to discuss their Fellowship proposal. 

The default starting salary for these fellowships is Grade 7.1.

If you would like to submit an expression of interest, please complete the expression of interest form and send it with your up-to-date CV to the research hub fss-researchhub4@sheffield.ac.uk by 5pm (UK time) on 22nd October 2021.

We will be notifying selected applicants in late November, and then working with them to develop a full application in time for the Leverhulme Trust's deadline in February 2022.
