Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships call
Fellowships are available to be held in the College of Arts and Law at the University of Birmingham commencing between 1 September 2017 and 1 May 2018. Applications are welcomed from candidates with a track record of excellent research, but who have not yet held an established academic appointment. 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. Appointments are dependent on the successful award of the Leverhulme Fellowship. The expectation is that Fellows should undertake a significant piece of publishable work during their tenure.
The College of Arts and Law at the University of Birmingham is happy to contribute the requires 50% from the host institutions for applications in the area of Translation Studies. Institutional approval is required before an application can be formally submitted; the College will therefore be running an internal competition. The internal deadline for the required institutional approval process is Wednesday 11 January 2017. Interested applicants need to submit a sponsoring statement from an academic member of staff who is familiar with both the applicant and the intended research. If you are considering applying, please approach a member of the Birmingham Centre for Translation.
