The College Council wishes to make an election to a Research Fellowship, tenable for three years and not renewable, to commence on 1 September 2023. The Fellowship is intended for researchers in the Sciences (including Mathematics, Engineering and the Biological, Medical and Veterinary sciences).
Research Fellowships provide opportunities for scholars at an early stage of their academic careers to establish a successful research profile. The successful candidates are expected to be either graduate students, who are expecting to submit their PhD thesis (or equivalent) no later than June 2023, or post-doctoral researchers who have completed their PhD within the last three years.
The starting stipend will be spine point 29 on the Cambridge University Pay Scale which currently equates to £24,285. There will be an increase of one spine point in each of the second and third year. If the Fellow does not hold a PhD, the stipend until the PhD is submitted will be spine point 23 which currently equates to £21,197 per year. The stipend is pensionable in the USS Pension Scheme.
All applications, including references, must be made using the online application form on the College website: https://webapps.sid.cam.ac.uk/aboutus/personnel/apply/. The closing date is Friday 21 October 2022 for the receipt of the online application and Monday 24 October 2022 for two supporting references. The latter must also be submitted using the online form. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that both referees submit the form prior to the deadline. Short-listed applicants will be interviewed in the first half of January 2023.
If the successful candidate does not already have the right to work in the UK, the College may be able to sponsor them under the Skilled Worker Visa route. This will be subject to consideration of individual circumstances and details will be discussed at the offer stage.
All enquiries should be directed to the Research Fellowship Secretary and sent to the Research Fellowship Competition, Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge CB2 3HU or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The College reserves the right not to make an appointment.
