Leverhulme Earch Career Research Fellowships are intended to assist those at a relatively early stage of their academic careers, and it is hoped that the appointment would lead to a more permanent position for the individual, either within the same or another institution. All candidates must hold a doctorate or have equivalent research experience by the time they take up the Fellowship.
Applications from postdoctoral candidates wishing to be hosted in the Department of Media and Communications will be considered by a panel of Department faculty. Only one candidate can be selected. This selected candidate will be nominated to the LSE Research Development Panel, which will consider nominees from Departments and Research Centres across the School and choose up to six to support in their applications to the Leverhulme Trust.
See the Leverhulme Trust website for further details.
