Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships 2020

Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships 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. The expectation is that Fellows should undertake a significant piece of publishable work during their tenure, and that the Fellowships should lead to a more permanent academic position.

Warwick Philosophy Department invites applications from suitably qualified candidates to support in the latest round of the scheme. The deadline for the internal competition is Friday, 3rd January 2020. Full details of the internal scheme can be accessed using the link above.

Successful applicants will receive feedback and administrative support from the Department and University in the approach to the Leverhulme deadline on 27th February 2020. There will also be an application workshop held at the University of Warwick on 22nd January, which all supported applicants are advised to attend.
