Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships:  FAQs

Q : I have been appointed to a lectureship and need to resign from my LECF - what do I need to do?

Congratulations! Inform both the Leverhulme Trust and the INT right away, giving the last date on which you will be a LECF.

AND ask your institutional administrator to contact the Research Office to close your INT LECF account on that date and settle up with any refunds due to the Isaac Newton Trust  for salary contributions already paid.

Q : what is the INT's policy on maternity leave?

The Leverhulme Trust have recently revised their maternity policy and for Early Career Fellows will cover 50% of the additional net costs during the period of leave. The Isaac Newton Trust will match the Leverhulme's contribution. Please make sure you:

  • inform Leverhulme Trust as soon as it is known that maternity leave is needed
  • send INT a copy of the response of the Leverhulme Trust to your request and an estimate of the amount needed (consult your host institution's administrator); AND
  • send a copy of the email from Leverhulme confirming the amount as soon as it is available (this may be after leave has been completed.)

Q : can I transfer my INT matching funding for a Leverhulme ECF to another institution in the UK?

No - each host institution is responsible for raising its own matching funding

Q : if I transfer my LECF awarded at another UK institution to Cambridge, will INT provide matching funding

Normally, yes, but please consult the Senior Administrator before making firm plans.
