Equality, diversity and inclusion
AHRC is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion, and we want this funding opportunity to be attractive to all eligible candidates.
Principal investigators are entitled to take parental leave in accordance with the terms and conditions of their employment. We will consider requests for a grant to be placed in abeyance during the absence of the principal investigator for parental leave, and the period of the project extended by the period of leave.
We will also consider requests to continue the grant project on a flexible or part-time basis to allow the principal investigator to meet caring responsibilities or due to other justifiable reasons (for example, physical or mental health).
For further details, read the equality impact assessment (DOCX, 46KB).
