The School of European Languages, Culture and Society welcomes applications from outstanding scholars for the Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship scheme. Details of the Fellowship scheme for awards commencing in the academic year 2013-14 may be retrieved from the Leverhulme Trust's website.
Together with its sister School, SSEES (the School of Slavonic and East European Studies), SELCS offers degrees that include the study of some 20 languages (Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, Faroese, Hungarian, German, Icelandic, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Serbian/Croatian, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, and Ukrainian) and of the politics, history, film and other aspects of the cultures associated with these languages. SELCS and SSEES encourage interdisciplinary and cross-departmental research. The resources for research in the Bloomsbury area, where UCL is located, are internationally renowned. SELCS currently hosts one Leverhulme Early Career Fellow, Elizabeth Dearnley.
The Arts and Humanities Faculty deadline for outline proposals is 8 February 2013. Prospective applicants are invited to contact in the first instance the SELCS Research Director, Professor Stephen Hart (email@example.com).
In consultation with a designated mentor, applicants should prepare and then submit a PDF outline proposal by 4.00pm on Friday, 1 February 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In drawing up their outline proposal applicants are reminded that the Leverhulme Trust places special weight on
- the originality of the projects put to them
- the significance of the proposed work
- the ability to judge and take appropriate risk in the project
- the removal of barriers between traditional disciplines
Successful applicants will be notified by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities that their application can be submitted online via the Leverhulme Trust website (the final deadline is 4.00pm on 7 March 2013). Further information on the FAH procedure for Leverhulme ECFs is available on the joint Arts and Humanities and Social and Historical Sciences Faculty website.
