Visiting Bye-Fellowship for Scholars from the Global South

University of Cambridge - Gonville & Caius College

Location: Cambridge
Salary: £30,000 stipend
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 21st November 2022
Closes: 28th February 2023

The Role

Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge, invites applications for its Visiting Fellowship designed to support research in any field of study from scholars with current academic appointments or their equivalent in the Global South (defined for present purposes as countries on the current OECD ‘DAC’ list, https://www.oecd.org/dac/financing-sustainable-development/development-finance-standards/DAC-List-of-ODA-Recipients-for-reporting-2022-23-flows.pdf).

The Visiting Bye-Fellowship is a limited-term appointment for the purpose of carrying out some specific research project, free of other commitments. The purposes are to permit the scholar to execute this project, to enable the scholar to engage in intellectual exchange with Cambridge scholars and to form connections that might be of longer-term benefit to their own careers and to their own institutions, and to enrich the life of the College and university by widening our own networks and perspectives. 

This one-year position is open to established researchers, including those on leave or on secondment from university posts. The successful candidate will have done a minimum of three years of advanced research (postdoctoral or equivalent) and will normally have produced significant published work. The successful candidate is expected to reside in Cambridge, but research trips may be permitted.

The Visiting Bye-Fellowship carries a stipend of £30,000, paid in monthly instalments, and a small research allowance, currently £950 per annum.

Additional benefits include:

  • Up to ten free meals per week in College
  • Free or subsidised accommodation (some of it suitable for double or family occupancy), as available
  • Affiliation or other connection to the relevant department or departments of Cambridge University
  • Cycle-to-work scheme
  • College gym
