Call for applications: Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship scheme

School of Classics, University of St Andrews
Deadline: Friday 05 January 2018, 5pm

We invite applications to this scheme, which aims to provide career development opportunities for those who are at a relatively early stage of their academic careers, but who have a proven record of research. The expectation is that Fellows should undertake a significant piece of publishable work during their tenure, and that the Fellowships should lead to a more permanent academic position.
