The Leverhulme Research Leadership call is due to open in January, with a deadline of 10 May 2019. Each institution is limited to one application and there will therefore be a co-ordinated bid.
Each academic division will be running an internal sift before submitting their candidate to a cross-divisional panel chaired by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research) in March 2019.
The scheme offers £800,000 to £1m for talented scholars to build a small research team with the aim of significantly impacting on the direction of their field.
Prospective candidates should approach their divisional research support team in the first instance.
