If, for any reason, you have taken a career break or have had an atypical career and wish to disclose this in your application, the selection committee will take this into account, recognising that the quantity of your research may be reduced as a result. The selection committee will also be mindful of the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic may have had on candidates’ research as a result of library and archive closures and/or additional caring responsibilities and/or teaching responsibilities.
