Gonville & Caius College intends to elect two Research Fellows in Arts, Humanities, and Social 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 one year since the first submission of their PhD. Research Fellowships are awarded to individuals with an exceptionally strong academic record who have produced innovative doctoral research in any branch of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
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 Cambridge Department or Faculty. 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 current stipend offered is either (a) £24,608, rising by three annual increments to £27,392 if living in College accommodation as 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. All stipends are subject to annual cost of living review each October. 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 written work for assessment at the same time as their application. Apart from quotations, the work must be in English. If a complete PhD and/or published work is submitted, the applicant should indicate which parts are the most important; a maximum of 30,000 words will be assessed.
Applications open on Thursday 1 September 2022 and must be completed by Friday 30 September 2022. Shortlisting will take place on Monday 9 January 2023. Those selected will be invited for interview on Friday 13 January 2023, so candidates should ensure that they will be available for interview on that day, if required. Offers will be made shortly after the interviews and must be accepted by 4.00 pm on Wednesday 18 January 2023 at the latest.
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 of intellectual and academic attainment and promise.
