The highly competitive scheme, which enables researchers to undertake a significant piece of publishable research, recognises those who have already demonstrated research excellence in their fields but who have not yet held a permanent academic post.
'We are delighted that the Leverhulme Trust has offered six Early Career Fellowships to candidates supported by departments across the Social Sciences Division', said Professor Mark Pollard, Associate Head of the Social Sciences Division (Research). 'This is not the first time that our departments have received such a considerable number of these distinguished awards. We are proud to host, support, and nurture these promising early career academics. We are also glad that prestigious funders, like Leverhulme, acknowledge that the research being conducted in Oxford is of outstanding quality.'
