Place of tenure: guidance from the Leverhulme Trust

The Fellowships are tenable in any university or institution of higher education in the UK. If awarded a Fellowship, a request to transfer the place of tenure will normally only be considered where there is clear evidence of career development opportunities and such requests are very unlikely to be approved unless the Fellow has been in post for at least one year at the time of the request. Requests to transfer an award prior to take up of a post will not be considered. Early Career Fellows are employees of the host institution and subject to that institution's terms and conditions of employment.
