Research Fellowship

University of Cambridge - Trinity Hall

Joint Application Scheme for Early Career Research Fellowships 2017

Applications are invited for a Research Fellowship in Ancient History & Classical Archaeology, Archaeology, Asian & Middle Eastern Studies, Geography (arts), History, History of Art , History of Science or Social Anthropology, which will normally be tenable for three years from 1 October 2017. The Fellowship is 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 Fellowships is as initial (normally) post-doctoral positions appropriate to the start of an academic career.

The prime duty of a Research Fellow is to engage in research; Research Fellows are also welcome to undertake supervision teaching, if they wish, within a limit of six hours per week. Research Fellows are not expected to undertake any additional administrative duties within a College, but should attend twice-termly meetings of the College’s Governing Body.

The pensionable stipend of post-PhD Research Fellows is currently £21,685 (pre-PhD £19,241).

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 across all Colleges in the scheme, of which one is offered at Trinity Hall, 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:
