Grant -- ISRF Early Career Fellowship (ECF5)
The Foundation intends to make a small number of awards to support original interdisciplinary research, across the range of the social sciences, to be held from a start date no later than the end of December 2020. Scholars from within Europe are eligible to apply.
The award is intended to enable a scholar at the early career stage to pursue his/her research full-time, for a period of up to 12 months. The amount will be offered to buy out the costs of replacing all teaching and associated administration in the applicant’s home institution, and will be considered to a maximum of £50,000 or €55,000* per successful applicant. Within that sum, reasonable support for research expenses may be considered on a matched-funding basis with the host institution.
The applicant should normally hold a salaried position at an institution of higher education and research, and be within 10 years of PhD award. Career breaks may be taken into account.
Independent Scholars (i.e. PI's not currently employed by an academic institution) may apply, and are required to provide a letter of support from a recognised scholar in the applicant’s field of interest, covering the applicant’s status (personal academic reference) and the research proposed (a brief comment on how this meets the ISRF criteria).
