These awards enable well-established and distinguished researchers in the humanities and social sciences to devote themselves to a single research project of outstanding originality and significance, which can be completed within two or three years. Candidates should state explicitly what the proposed outcomes of the award will be. Fellowships are particularly aimed at those who are or have been prevented by routine duties from completing a programme of original research.
The Fellowships fund the salary costs of an individual to undertake the normal duties of the applicant for the duration of the Fellowship.
A Major Research Fellow may also request research expenses up to an annual maximum of £5,000. If such funds are required they must be requested as part of the application procedure.
The duration of a Fellowship is for two or three years, to start at the beginning of the 2016/17 academic year.
Closing date: 7 May 2015
