Stipendiary Isaac Newton Trust Rutherford Research Fellowship

University of Cambridge - Fitzwilliam College

Joint Application Scheme for Early Career Research Fellowships 2017

Applications are invited for one stipendiary Isaac Newton Trust Rutherford Research Fellowship in Classics, Education, English, Modern and Medieval Languages or Music.

The Fellowship will normally be tenable for three years from 1 October 2017. The 2015-16  pensionable rates (which are subject to annual review) are: pre-£18,212 - £20,989, post PhD £19,828 - £22,249, with an additional allowance of £3,249 for any Research Fellow not resident in College.  The prime duty of a Research Fellow is to pursue research, and a report on the progress of that research will be required each year. The Research Fellow will become a member of the Governing Body of the College, with joint responsibility for its governance, and may also be invited to undertake (for an additional payment) up to four hours of small group teaching per week.

Churchill College, Fitzwilliam College, Murray Edwards College, Robinson College and Trinity Hall operate a Joint Application Scheme for Early Career Research Fellowships. Applications will be considered by all Colleges offering Fellowships in the relevant subject. A total of seven Fellowships is offered but candidates are advised that competition is likely to be intense; last year over 1000 applications were received.

Candidates are warned that they are responsible for checking their eligibility to take up the post under UK immigration rules.

Full information regarding the Fellowships on offer, further particulars and registration details will be available at the Joint Application Scheme website w/c 10 October 2016:

All applications to be submitted online by Monday 14 November 2016
