Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship CompetitionLink opens in a new window

The next round of the Leverhulme Early Career FellowshipLink opens in a new window competition will be opening soon (January 2023).

Sociology has an excellent track record in supporting successful candidates for this scheme and we are inviting applications from suitably qualified candidates to support in the latest scheme. These applications will be selected through a competitive internal selection process and expressions of interest in the scheme should be sent to by the deadline of Wednesday 01 December 2022. All expressions of interest will need to include:

  • A draft proposal in Word which addresses the 'Research and Publications' section of the Leverhulme Trust ECF application form in the word length permitted
  • An academic CV (2 pages maximum)
  • A forwarded email or letter of support from the academic mentor in Sociology


Please note that the University has limited the number of applications that each Department can submit to a maximum of three, due to the financial model on which the awards are made and the 50% match contribution required from the University. Due to the level of interest in the scheme and the challenges of reducing the field down to three candidates, we will conduct an internal selection process in December 2022 (identifying three applications to support). Decisions will be reported to applicants by early January 2023, ahead of the Leverhulme application deadline of February 2023.
