2020 Early Career Fellowships

Early Career Fellowships offer salary costs for researchers at the beginning of their academic career, providing them with the opportunity for career advancement and enabling them to undertake a significant piece of original publishable research.

The scheme provides 50 per cent of the Fellow’s total salary costs – up to a limit of £25,000 per annum – with the host institution providing the remaining share. Research expenses of £6,000 a year are also available. To be eligible, applicants must either have a degree from a UK university or currently hold an academic post in the UK and have submitted their doctoral thesis not more than four years before the application closing date of Thursday 27 February 2020. Special consideration will be given to applicants who have taken a break in their academic career.

Those currently registered for a doctorate may apply only if they have submitted their doctoral thesis by the closing date. Applications must be made through a host institution. The host department must have secured match funding for the Fellowship before the closing date for applications and must confirm this as part of the application process. Fellowships last for three years and must begin between 1 September 2020 and 1 May 2021.

Closing date: Thursday 27 February 2020
