Early Career Research Fellowships are reserved for non-affiliated early stage researchers who are within five years of the award of their doctorate. They can be held for a period up to a year and are normally non-renewable. The Institute will provide the use of shared office space, access to Senate House Library, an email account, free attendance at Institute events, and access to a fund for travel/research expenses (currently up to £200 pa, subject to affordability and demand). Early Career Research Fellowships are intended to provide early stage researchers with a base from which to complete research, and apply for grants and academic posts, while participating in activities within the Institute. Appointees will be welcome, but not required, to initiate activities such as seminars, workshops or conferences of their own.
