UEA Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships 2022
Ref: RA1915 

The School of International Development invites applications for Early Career Fellowships to be held at UEA, to start between 1 September 2022 and 1 May 2023. Early Career Fellowships aim 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 (which should not be a reworking or extension of the doctoral research project) during their tenure, and that the Fellowships should lead to a more permanent academic position.

DEV is a leading centre of excellence in high impact research and inspirational teaching. The results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 ranked the School of International Development fourth for overall research quality in Anthropology and Development studies, with 74% of our research ranked “world-leading” or “internationally excellent”. The School’s work on global challenges and international development includes a strong track record of interdisciplinary collaboration in both teaching and research, and formal affiliations with international institutions such as the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO). Our academics regularly provide policy advice on major global challenges such as poverty reduction, environmental sustainability and water security to a range of international institutions.Expertise is centered in groups such the Global Environmental Justice group ( and Water Security Research Centre (

Successful applicants will join a vibrant and multidisciplinary research environment fully committed to supporting the scholarship and career development of Leverhulme Fellows. Each Fellow will be assigned an academic mentor and will be fully integrated into the life of the School. For more information about the School of International Development, see:
