Early Career Research Fellowships 2018

University of Cambridge - Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge

Applications are invited for one stipendiary Henslow Fellowship in a branch of the Sciences (including Mathematics and Engineering). The stipend will be funded by the Cambridge Philosophical Society. The Fellowship will normally be tenable for three years from 1 October 2018. The 2017-18 pensionable rates are: pre-PhD £18,777 - £21,585, post PhD £20,411 - £22,876, with an additional allowance, which is currently £3,340 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. Research Fellows are frequently invited, but not obligated, to undertake (for an additional payment) up to four hours of small group teaching per week.

Churchill College, Fitzwilliam College, Murray Edwards College, St Edmund’s College, Selwyn 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 eleven 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 9 October 2017: http://www.chu.cam.ac.uk/applying/fellows/jrf/

All applications to be submitted online by Monday 13 November 2017
