Applications are invited for a Gulbenkian Junior Research Fellowship in certain areas of the arts and humanities (see further particulars). This will normally be tenable for three years from 1 October 2022. The Fellowship is open to non-UK nationals only. It is open to graduates 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 Fellowship is intended to be an early (first or second) post-doctoral position appropriate to the start of an academic career.

The prime duty of a Research Fellow will be to pursue research and they will be expected to provide a written report on the progress of their research each year.

Salary will be in the range £22,254 - £23,487 (as at 1 October 2021) with a PhD (10% reduction if pre-PhD submission). Junior Research Fellowships additionally carry accommodation and dining entitlements.

Candidates are advised that they are responsible for checking their eligibility to take up the post under UK immigration rules.

Churchill College, Fitzwilliam College and Trinity Hall operate a Joint Application Scheme for Early Career Research Fellowships, with a total of four Fellowships offered for 2022.

Full information regarding all the Fellowships on offer, further particulars and registration details will be available at the Joint Application Scheme website from 8 October 2021:

Applications will be considered by all Colleges offering Fellowships in the relevant subject. Competition is likely to be intense; last year over 1000 applications were received.
