Leverhulme awards recognise rising stars of research

Details of the 2013 winners of the prestigious Philip Leverhulme Prizes are now available.

The prizes recognise the achievements of researchers at an early stage of their career, whose work has already made an international impression, and whose future research holds exceptional promise. The prizes were established to commemorate the contribution of Philip Leverhulme, the Third Viscount Leverhulme and former trustee, to the work of the Leverhulme Trust.

Prize winners receive £70,000 which they can use to assist them in further advancing their research — for example, by enabling them to appoint a post-doctoral research assistant, or to meet the cost of international travel to undertake research, meet collaborators or disseminate their work, or to cover the cost of teaching replacement.

Twenty-nine prizes have been awarded across six disciplines: Astronomy and Astrophysics, Economics, Engineering, Geography, Modern Languages and Literature and Performing and Visual Arts. See www.leverhulme.ac.uk/recent-grants for full listings.
