The University is keen to consider eligible applications from outstanding international researchers not currently working in the United Kingdom, to bring their research and teaching experience to the UK and to advance our goals through a professorship with the university. The University of Westminster has a proud tradition of global collaboration. We ranked 28th in the world for International Outlook in the Times Higher Education Young University Rankings, and are committed to engaging with world-class, internationally recognised scholars.
The Leverhulme Trust Visiting Professorships may last for between 3 and 12 months, and tenures of 6 months or more can be spread over 2 or more visits.
We encourage you to talk to your leading international colleagues about putting in an expression of interest at Westminster. As there are likely to be more applications than the University can support, to apply, eligible applicants for this scheme must first submit an Expression of Interest to the University, via this proforma, describing their proposed programme of activities and why they have selected the University of Westminster as their host institution. Successful candidates will be supported by Westminster through the Leverhulme Trust application process.
