The UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) will be sponsoring applications for the Leverhulme Trust’s Early Career Fellowship competition in 2012. This is an excellent opportunity for early career researchers to access substantial and prestigious funding. SSEES offers the largest UK concentration of research in the history, economics, politics, sociology, anthropology, culture, literature and languages of Central, Eastern and South-East Europe and Russia. You can learn more about us on our web pages at <http://www.ssees.ucl.ac.uk/> http://www.ssees.ucl.ac.uk/ Guidelines for the Leverhulme’s ECF scheme are accessible here: <http://www.leverhulme.ac.uk/funding/ECF/ECF.cfm> http://www.leverhulme.ac.uk/funding/ECF/ECF.cfm Proposals should be sent to Mrs Maria Widdowson, SSEES Assistant Director (Finance & Administration), <mailto:email@example.com> firstname.lastname@example.org ***no later than February 19th***. These should be written on the Leverhulme Trust application form (link above). A SSEES panel will review and rank proposals received by that date. There will then be time and support available to work on the successful full proposals selected to go forward. If you have questions about the process, please address these to Mrs Maria Widdowson. Professor Simon Dixon (Arts & Humanities) email@example.com, or Professor Slavo Radosevic (Social Sciences), <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> email@example.com will be happy to advise on matters pertinent to the research field.
