Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships 2018

Applications in all areas of Classical Studies, including Classical Archaeology, are invited from suitably qualified researchers in the early stages of an academic career who wish to base their research in the Faculty of Classics of the University of Oxford. A previous connection with the University is not required: indeed, according to the Leverhulme Trust website,

The Research Awards Advisory Committee believes that the development of an academic career is best served by gaining experience at different institutions. Applicants who have not already moved institutions in the course of their academic career (i.e. between their undergraduate degree and current position) should nominate a new host institution, or otherwise demonstrate clear evidence of the academic and/or personal reasons for remaining at the same institution, such as access to highly specialist equipment or a highly specialised research team.

Thus applications are particularly welcome from those who are currently working elsewhere. The Faculty will hold an internal competition to decide which application(s) will be put forward under the scheme, so applicants should not approach the Leverhulme Trust directly until Faculty support is confirmed in writing.

The Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship scheme is aimed at scholars who are at a relatively early stage of their academic careers; they are defined as those who have not yet held a full-time permanent academic post in a UK institution and who submitted their doctoral thesis for viva voce examination not more than four years prior to the application closing date of 1 March 2018. Candidates must check that they are eligible for the scheme before proceeding with the application process described below. Candidates should have a proven record of research. The objective is for Fellows to undertake a significant piece of publishable research during the tenure of the award; hence the project put forward should not be a reworking or mere extension of the candidate’s doctoral research project. For more information on the scheme, including eligibility, please see the Leverhulme Trust website.

In addition to the salary (which normally will be set at Grade 07S.01 of the University’s salary scale, £31,604 per annum as at November 2017), the Leverhulme Trust will provide up to £6,000 per annum to further the award-holder’s research activities.

How to apply to the Faculty of Classics

Applications should be sent electronically to the HR Administrator (recruitment@classics.ox.ac.uk) at the Classics Faculty by the end of 8 December 2017, and marked ‘Leverhulme ECF 2018’ in the subject header. They should comprise:

1. a CV, of two pages maximum, including education, publications, any awards, thesis title and examiners;

2. draft statement of research, of two pages maximum (which should follow the general lines of the ‘Detailed statement of proposed research’ mentioned in the Leverhulme scheme’s notes of guidance, help notes, p. 3);

3. a 150-word abstract summarising the research for a general audience;

4. an indication of what additional research expenses may be claimed.

Candidates are in addition asked to identify:

(a) A Mentor for their project from among the permanent members of the Faculty of Classics, and confirmation that they are willing to act as a Mentor. More details about members of the Faculty of Classics can be found at: http://www.classics.ox.ac.uk/Faculty-Members.html

(b) A referee, who should be asked to provide a reference which addresses the significance and originality of the research project and the candidate's fitness to undertake it; this should be sent directly to the HR Administrator (recruitment@classics.ox.ac.uk) by 8 December 2017.

What happens next?

Once the Faculty has considered the applications it receives and forwarded the recommendations to the Humanities Division, the successful applicant(s) will then be supported by the Divisional Research Facilitators in the completion of the full application to the Leverhulme Trust
