Leverhulme Trust

Early Career Fellowships

The Department of Economics and Related Studies at the University of York welcomes applicants to the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships scheme.

Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships are for early career researchers, who have a research record but have not yet held a full-time permanent academic post, to undertake a significant piece of publishable work. 

This scheme funds a three-year fellowship to commence between 1st September 2022 and 1st May 2023.  It is open to PhD students who will have submitted their thesis by 24th February 2022, and those who already hold their doctorate, having submitted their thesis no earlier than 24th February 2018, i.e. in the four years preceding the closing date (with allowances made for career breaks under certain circumstances).  
 
Applicants must not have already held a permanent academic post and must either hold a degree (any degree) from a UK higher education institution or, at the time of the application deadline, hold an academic position in the UK (e.g. fixed-term lectureship, PDRA, fellowship) which commenced a minimum of four months prior to the closing date. 
 
The Department will be supporting one application to this scheme.  In order to be considered, please send your CV and a one-page research project proposal to our Research Facilitator at megan.rose@york.ac.uk by 13th December 2021.  You should consider the information available on the Leverhulme Trust website when preparing your proposal.  In your CV please include your (expected) PhD thesis submission date and details of any publications.
