Current Opportunities

King’s College London would like to invite applications to the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships scheme. The scheme provides three year fellowships for early career researchers within five years of submission of PhD. Fellowships are tenable in all fields, except for projects which would be better funded by the Medical Research Council. Important note: due to unprecedented success with applications to this scheme in 2019-20, it has been decided that the Faculty of Arts & Humanities will suspend participation in the scheme for this round, 2020-21 to keep things in balance. Participation in the scheme for 2021-22 will be reviewed. Any queries regarding this temporary suspension should be directed to Ben Nichols,

The Professor Anthony Mellows Medal and Fellowship is awarded annually to an outstanding post-doctoral scientist. The award seeks to encourage individuals with a strong research interest to become leaders in their field. The award is supported by the Anthony and Elizabeth Mellows Charitable Settlement, in association with King's College, in the hope that it will extend the frontiers of research in the health sciences. The Fellowship provides 18-24 months of funding and aims to support the Fellow's transition to an independent research career. It is awarded through an annual competition, advertised widely and open to both internal (King's) and external candidates. The next deadline is 20 April 2020; for details about how to apply see the link below.
