Up to four Research Fellows will be given the opportunity to spend a month in Leeds. In addition we will support up to two six-week Senior Fellowships, which are intended to give established scholars time and space to develop a research project free from usual work commitments.
Both Fellowships include accommodation, travel expenses and a per diem.
To apply for the Fellowship please forward a letter of application, a 750-word research proposal, that also indicates how you will use our resources, and a CV by Monday 4 March 2019 to Kirstie Gregory, Research Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org
