The John Rylands Research Institute is pleased to announce that it intends to sponsor Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships beginning in 2016. This will be a two-stage process. Potential applicants are invited to submit preliminary applications by Monday 11 January 2016. An internal panel will then decide which applications to put forward to the Leverhulme (by 10 March 2016).
Projects must demonstrate a strong connection to the University of Manchester Library’s Special Collections. Interested candidates should contact the John Rylands Research Institute Administrator, Anna Higson, as soon as possible. The Institute’s Director, Professor Peter E. Pormann, and grant writer, Chloe Jeffries, as well as the curatorial staff of the Library may assist the candidate in formulating a viable research proposal that is based on a detailed study of items in the Special Collections.
