Joint Application Scheme for Early Career Research Fellowships 2022

University of Cambridge

Location: Cambridge
Salary: £23,499
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 8th October 2021
Closes: 8th November 2022

Applications are invited for a Research Fellowship in the following Science subjects - Astrophysics; Biological Sciences; Chemical Engineering; Chemistry; Computer Science; Engineering; Experimental Psychology; Geography, Geology and Geophysics; Materials Science; Mathematics; Medical and Veterinary Sciences; Physics – which  will normally be tenable for three years from 1 October 2022. The Fellowship is open to graduates of any gender, 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.  These Fellowships are 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 £23,499 (pre-PhD £20,851).

Trinity Hall, Churchill College and Fitzwilliam College operate a Joint Application Scheme for Early Career Research Fellowships. Applications will be considered by any of these colleges offering Fellowships in the relevant subject. A total of four Fellowships will be offered across the 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 are available at the Joint Application Scheme website:
