UEA Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships 2021
Ref: RA1807

The School of International Development invites applications for Early Career Fellowships to be held at UEA, to start between 1 September 2021 and 1 May 2022. 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 (but 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 (REF2014) ranked the School of International Development third among UK development studies institutions for its research, 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 Department for International Development. 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 ( among others. 

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:
