Applications are invited for a stipendiary Isaac Newton Trust/Robinson College Research Fellowship in the following subjects: Anglo-Saxon, Architecture, Classical Literature and Linguistics, English, Linguistics, Modern and Medieval Languages or Music, which will normally be tenable for three years from 1 October 2017. Fellowships are open to graduates, men or women, of any University, with no age limit, but will normally be awarded to candidates who have recently completed their PhD or are close to completion. The function of these Fellowships is as initial (normally) post-doctoral positions appropriate to the start of an academic career.

Applications will be considered by all Colleges offering Fellowships in the relevant subject.
