Jesus College, Cambridge

Salary: £21,585 + per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 27th July 2018

Applications are invited for three Research Fellowships, one to be held in Science and two in the Arts.  The Fellowships are fixed-term three year Research Fellowships normally commencing on 1 October 2019, though there may be grounds for a different starting date as described in the further particulars posted on from 27 July 2018.

The Fellowships are intended for researchers early in their careers. Successful candidates are expected to be either graduate students, probably in the latter stages of their research leading to a PhD Degree, or post-doctoral researchers who have recently been awarded their PhD Degree. Candidates who have undertaken more than five years of full-time research are unlikely to be considered. The College is prepared to consider exceptions to these criteria and candidates have the opportunity to present a case for this during the application process.

Remuneration for a Research Fellow is set by reference to the Cambridge general stipend and salary scale and will start from £21,585.  The College is able to assist in the provision of subsidised accommodation, subject to availability, and 7 free meals per week.  Certain research benefits may be reimbursed.  Research fellows may join the University Superannuation Scheme.

The application process is available online at from Friday 27 July 2018.  Applications must be received by 5pm on Wednesday 29 August 2018.  Shortlisted candidates will be asked to upload one copy of written work up to a maximum of 40,000 words  and also a 500 word statement regarding the importance of their current and proposed work by Monday 8 October.  A further shortlist will be made and those candidates will be invited for interview on 16th November 2018.  The College is an equal opportunities employer.
