The Academy has opened a new call for applications for the Senior Research Fellowship scheme, with funding generously provided by the Leverhulme Trust (on a non-FEC basis). This enables established scholars to have one year’s research leave with funding being provided to cover the costs of replacement teaching. The closing date for applications is 16 November 2011.
Aim of the award
The aim of the scheme is to allow successful applicants to obtain time freed from normal teaching and administrative commitments. The time bought by the scheme should be devoted to the completion of a major piece of research.
The Academy takes no account of an applicant’s age or current status (eg Professor, Lecturer) in determining eligibility for these awards. Rather, in all cases, award-holders are expected to be able to disseminate the results of their research not only through publications, but also through feeding into their future academic career after the end of the awards. Any field of study in the humanities and social sciences is suitable for support.
Level of Grant
These Fellowships pay for the costs of a replacement lecturer and the salary of the replacement should be commensurate with that of an early career appointment. Awards are held over 12 months, beginning in the autumn of 2012.
Applications must be submitted via https://egap.britac.ac.uk/ , the Academy’s electronic grant application system by the deadline on 16 November 2011.
