If you have recently completed your PhD and successfully completed your viva in a Mobilities-related field you may be interested in applying for a place on CeMoRe’s New Researcher Support Scheme. The purpose of the Scheme is to help you make a successful Fellowship application to a major funder (e.g., British Academy, Wellcome, ERC), with CeMoRe as your host research centre. The fellowship application is on a topic of your choice that will help us deliver CeMoRe’s Climate Emergency Mobilities Research Manifesto.

As an Early Career Researcher, it can be difficult to know which Fellowship opportunities you are eligible for, to find an appropriate host institution and research centre for the next stage of your career, and to get the support you need to put together your best possible proposal. CeMoRe wants to support you in these next steps, at this vital career stage.

The selected candidates will be funded to visit CeMoRe, Lancaster from 3-13th July 2022 and take part in a 10-day programme of events and bid-writing. During this visit, they will be located in the CeMoRe/Sociology Department visitor offices. They will take part in 2 international symposia (‘Climate emergency mobilities’ 4-6th July; ‘(Auto)biography, mobilities and the climate emergency’ 7-8th July), meet CeMoRe Directors and Associate Directors, CeMoRe strategic partners (from Konkuk, South Korea and Padua, Italy), and internationally renowned mobilities, scholars. The candidates will get a one-day break to explore Lancaster and the surrounding area, and will then take part in an intensive 3-day bid-writing workshop, which will include a campus tour. The workshop will address key elements/criteria of the Schemes, provide tutoring and advice, support with budgets and justification of resources, writing space and rapid feedback on proposal documents.

The scheme covers the following costs:

  • 10 nights bed and breakfast on Lancaster University campus (arrive 3rd July, depart 13th July).
  • Fee for ‘Climate Emergency Mobilities Symposium’ 4th – 6th
  • Fee for ‘(Auto)biography, mobilities and the climate emergency’ Symposium 7th – 8th
  • 3 day intensive bid-writing workshop
  • Sociology Department Bench Fees & desk/shared office space in CeMoRe visitor offices
  • Lunches & refreshments at events on 4th – 8th and 10th-12th July inclusive.
  • Subsistence grant of £10 per day (candidates must submit receipts to be reimbursed – max £100)
  • Travel grant £150 (candidates must submit receipts to be reimbursed – max £150)

The scheme will support 3 candidates identified through written applications, to be supported in 2022. We are seeking talented Early Career Researchers from around the world who wish to contribute to CeMoRe’s Internationally Recognised Mobilities Scholarship through developing major Fellowship proposals with our support.

Application Deadline: 11th April 2022
