The Department of Modern Languages and Cultures at the University of Liverpool is delighted to invite applicants to the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships scheme, which offers postdoctoral positions providing salary and research expenses for up to three years. These awards aim to provide career development opportunities for early career researchers (less than five years since their doctoral viva) who have a proven record of research but have not held a full-time permanent academic post in the UK. They enable Fellows to undertake a significant piece of publishable work and should lead to a more permanent academic position. Further information, including eligibility criteria, can be found on the Leverhulme Trust website. Our vision of research excellence within Modern Languages is founded on our expertise in interrogating transfers across cultural boundaries – be they national, social, ethnic, linguistic, or disciplinary in nature – in order to contribute to and lead research projects that work with an explicit awareness of and directly problematise language use beyond the Anglophone world.
