University of Cambridge - Gonville & Caius College

Location: Cambridge
Salary: See advert text
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 18th August 2022
Closes: 30th September 2022

Gonville & Caius College gives notice of its intention to elect two Research Fellows in Sciences in 2023.  Candidates should be graduate students or post-doctoral researchers who will either be in their final year of doctoral research, or not more advanced than two years since the first submission of their PhD. Research Fellowships are awarded to individuals of exceptionally strong academic record who have produced innovative doctoral research in any branch of the Sciences including Mathematics, Engineering and Medicine. 

The Fellowships will be tenable for four years from 1 October 2023. Research Fellows have the full entitlement of Fellows;they are expected to spend the tenure of their Fellowship in Cambridge and to contribute to the life of the College. Permission may be granted for periods of research away from Cambridge.

A Research Fellowship at Caius is compatible with a simultaneous appointment to a salaried post-doctoral position in a Laboratory, Department or Faculty in Cambridge. Such a person appointed to a Research Fellowship would be entitled to all the benefits of a Research Fellow other than stipend. If the post-doctoral position comes to an end before the end of the four-year fellowship, the College’s usual stipend will apply for the remainder of the time.

The stipend offered is either (a) £24,608, rising by three annual increments to £27,392 if living in College accommodation for a single person, which is free, or in College couples’ or family accommodation, if available, which is subsidised, or (b) £27,624 rising by 3 annual increments to £30,379 if not living in College accommodation. Other benefits include 10 free meals per week and certain research expenses may be reimbursed. There are also opportunities for College teaching (up to six hours per week), which attracts extra payment.

Candidates must submit with their application written work for assessors. The College is concerned with the quality rather than the quantity of work submitted, but it is important that sufficient material be available. It is common for candidates to submit approximately 30,000 words. Apart from quotations, the work must be in English.

Applications open on Thursday 1 September 2022 and must be completed by Friday 30 September 2022. The election will be held on Monday 16 January 2023 and candidates should respond to any offers received by 4.00pm on Wednesday 18 January 2023.

The College is an equal opportunities employer and actively supports equality, diversity and inclusion, and encourages applications from all sections of society. Elections to Research Fellowships are made purely on the basis on intellectual and academic attainment and promise.
