Applications are particularly welcome from women and Black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in the University.

The call for the 2024 Leverhulme ECF competition is yet to be announced but if you are interested in applying please speak to our academics about mentoring an application as soon as possible. Check back here regularly for the details of the internal competition timeline
