This Early Career Research Fellowship will normally be tenable for three years from 1 October 2022. The 2022-23 pensionable rates are: Pre-PhD £20,092 - £22,847, post PhD £21,686 – £24,174. Rent-free single accommodation will be offered in College (a taxable benefit), with a charge to cover services, or an additional allowance will be provided, which is currently £3,521 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.

Fitzwilliam is part of a group of Colleges operating a Joint Application Scheme for Early Career Research Fellowships. A total of four Fellowships are being offered in this cycle, at Churchill College, Fitzwilliam College and 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 on 8 October 2021:

All applications to be submitted online by Monday 8 November 2021.
