The Leverhulme Trust invites applications for its international academic fellowships. These enable established researchers to spend a period of time in one or more research centres outside the UK in order to develop new knowledge, skills and ideas.
Applicants must have held an established post at a UK HEI, or in a museum, art gallery or comparable institution, for at least three years, and must be resident in the UK at the time of application. They may not be registered for a degree, for doctoral studies, or for professional or vocational qualifications.
Awards may be used for the following purposes:
• observing and learning groundbreaking techniques or practices;
• developing new lines of research through overseas collaboration;
• making discipline-hopping excursions into new areas of research;
• developing innovations in teaching;
• exchanging ideas.
Applications are considered in all subject areas except research that is of direct relevance to the studies of disease, illness and disabilities in humans and animals, and research that intends to inform clinical practice or the development of medical applications.
Fellowships are worth up to £45,000 each for a period of between three and 12 months. Eligible costs include reasonable replacement cover whilst the fellow is overseas; travel to and within the overseas country or countries, a maintenance grant to meet the increased expense of living overseas, and essential research costs.
Deadline: 9 Nov 2017
