Without seeing the exact wording of your contract (or the company policy) it is hard to advise. If it states that you must give 2 weeks notice prior to the end date of your contract (which would be in about 3 months), then you cannot leave after 9 months. If it states that you can unilaterally end your contract at any time upon 2 weeks notice, then you can leave after providing such notice. At this point, you should consult directly with a local employment law attorney who can review the documents and best advise you further.
