Applying for Early Career Fellowships hosted at SSEES
SSEES regularly puts forward Early Career Researchers (ECRs) for British Academy, Leverhulme Trust and other similar fellowship schemes. If you are interested in applying for such a fellowship via SSEES, you should in the first instance contact a relevant member of academic staff who could act as your supervisor/mentor, to explore their suitability and fit. SSEES internally peer reviews prospective applications and only puts forward those assessed as of the highest quality.
