Schemes for Engineers in Research and Development
Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellowships Scheme
The current round is now closed
and the text below is for information purposes only.
The next call will be announced in September 2013.
These Senior Research Fellowships provide a prized
opportunity for mid-career academics at UK
universities to be relieved of their administrative
and teaching responsibilities for between an
academic term and one year. This enables the
Fellowship holder to concentrate on full-time
research activities and rejuvenate their research
The Fellowship covers the cost of a replacement
academic, who is expected to be appointed at the
junior lecturer level. This provides the junior
academic with a valuable opportunity to gain
teaching and management experience. It is expected
that the junior academic will relieve the Fellow of
all teaching and administrative duties for the whole
of the Fellowship term.
A support fund of up to £2,500 is also available for
miscellaneous research costs incurred by the Fellow,
such as travel and conference attendance.
