Leverhulme Major Research Fellowships in the Humanities and Social Sciences

The deadline for Leverhulme Major Research Fellowships in the Humanities and Social Sciences is fast approaching, with submission due on the 10th May.

Major Research Fellowship awards enable well-established and distinguished researchers in the disciplines of the Humanities and Social Sciences to devote themselves to a single research project of outstanding originality and significance; and are particularly aimed at those who are or have been prevented by routine duties from completing a programme of original research. The award is made to the institution at which the successful Fellow is employed, and takes the form of providing a replacement staff member to cover the period of the Fellowship.

The Fellowships fund the salary costs (normally starting at the most junior point of the lecturer scale at the institution concerned) of an individual to undertake the normal duties of the applicant for the duration of the Fellowship. A Major Research Fellow may be awarded research expenses up to an annual maximum of £5,000. Fellowships last for two or three years, and those awarded will start at the beginning of the 2013/14 academic year.
