How to become a Visiting Researcher or Postdoctoral Fellow in AHC

Apply to be a Visiting Research Fellow

If you would like to come to Leeds to continue your research as visiting Research Fellow, then in the first instance you need to get in touch with an appropriate member of the School in which your research would be most closely affiliated. 

Each School in the Faculty have slightly different rules and criteria surrounding their application process, but in general the School will need from you:

  • An indication of your research area and topic that you intend to study whilst you are here
  • An indication of the dates you wish to visit
  • A current CV
  • An indication of a member (or members) of staff that would most likely be able to support your application

Please refer to the individual School pages for further information about becoming a visiting researcher:

School of English; School of History; School of Languages, Cultures and Societies; School of Design; FAHACS; Performance & Cultural Industries; School of Music, Philosophy, Religion & History of Medicine; School of Media & Communication.

Apply to a Postdoctoral Fellowship or ECR scheme with AHC

Members of the Faculty are keen to support well-conceived postdoctoral fellowship projects, and Early Career Fellowships. These include applications to: 

  • Leverhulme ECR Fellowships scheme
  • Marie Curie ECR Fellowships scheme
  • British Academy/Newton Mobility Award scheme
  • Marie Curie Fellowship scheme

If you wish to apply for these or other similar schemes in conjunction with Leeds/AHC, please be aware that you should prepare the application well in advance and inform the relevant School during this process.  This might mean preparing an application in anticipation of calls.
