Leverhulme International Academic Fellowships include call for innovators in teaching

The Leverhulme Trust have issued calls for their Research Fellowships and International Academic Fellowships schemes.

We’d like to draw your attention in particular to the International Academic Fellowships scheme, which includes a call to those who might have an idea for developing innovations in teaching in an international research centre.

International Academic Fellowships provide established researchers with a concentrated period based in one or more research centres outside the UK. The intention of the scheme is to provide opportunities to develop new knowledge, skills and ideas, and may for example be used for the following:

• observing and learning ground-breaking 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

Fellowships are for between 3 and 12 months and worth up to £40k for replacement costs, travel and subsistence and essential research costs.

Further details are available at:

Deadline for applications is 12 November at 4:00 p.m.

If you would like to discuss an application please just get in touch with Dr Gary Williams, Funding Development Manager (Social Sciences) at the Research and Enterprise Office.

The University of Essex will moderate comments and there will be a delay before any posts appear.
