The Managers of the Herchel Smith Postdoctoral Research Fellowships Fund invite applications for four Fellowships to be held in a Department in the School of the Biological Sciences (SBS) at the University of Cambridge from 1 October 2022 or otherwise by negotiation. Fellows are required to pursue their research on a full-time basis in Cambridge. Preference will be given to those working at the interface with the physical sciences (for example using computational, engineering, mathematical, synthetic biology or systems biology approaches) and who have or can develop appropriate links with colleagues in the physical sciences. The Fellowships are tenable up to three years.
The Fellowship stipend will be on the University's Postdoctoral Research Associate scale, currently between £33,309-£40,927 per annum, with an annual research allowance of up to £15,000.
In accordance with Dr Smith's will, candidature is limited to candidates who have obtained their PhD degree, or equivalent, within the last three years at any university but normally excluding Cambridge and Harvard. Fellowships can only be offered to those with less than three years of postdoctoral experience by the time the award is taken up.
