A shortlist of applications will be agreed within the Faculty before submission to the Newton Trust for consideration. Selection at both stages will be made on the basis of application materials. No interviews will be held. Applicants shortlisted for Newton Trust consideration will be informed by 15 January 2019. The outcome of the Newton Trust pre-selection competition will be known two or three weeks after that, to allow for successful candidates to finalise their submissions in time for the Leverhulme's deadline.

The Faculty is committed to equality and diversity, and we would particularly welcome applications from members of underrepresented groups. Details of some of the family-friendly policies operated by the University are at: http://www.hr.admin.cam.ac.uk/pay-benefits/cambens-employee-benefits/family-friendly. In recognition of its efforts to advance gender equality, the University holds an institutional 'Athena-SWAN' silver award and the Faculty of Philosophy is working towards an 'Athena-SWAN' submission.
