The Economic and Social Research Council will shortly be inviting proposals for its future research leaders scheme. The closing date is expected to be in September 2015 and will be confirmed when the call opens in July. The following call details refer to the previous round and are subject to change. This scheme supports early-career researchers in carrying out research and developing aspects of their research and knowledge exchange skills. Grants are available for up to three years, with a pro-rata duration option for those employed part-time on a contract
of 0.5 FTE or above. In the last round, there was an overall limit of £350,000 at 100 per cent full economic cost, of which ESRC paid 80 per cent.
