Applications are invited for the Joan Robinson Research Fellowship in Heterodox Economics tenable for five years from 1st October 2023. This is a Research Fellowship under College Statutes.
The position is open to graduates of any university with no age limit but is principally intended to support researchers at an early stage in their academic careers and will usually be awarded to a candidate who has recently completed a Ph.D. or is close to completion.
All candidates will be asked to provide a statement of research which should not exceed 1000 words, outlining their current research along with the research they propose to pursue if elected. All candidates must also provide details for two referees who have agreed to submit a reference through the website. Longlisted candidates will be invited to submit written work of no more than 12,000 words (not including footnotes etc.), accompanied by a short note explaining how this work fits into their overall research programme. Shortlisted candidates will then be invited for interview.
Candidates travelling from overseas should note that, should they be invited to interview, the College cannot pay for international travel. We shall, however, cover the costs of travel within the UK and offer overnight accommodation at Girton. Overseas candidates may be interviewed online.
The emoluments of a Fellowship are reviewed annually. The starting stipend will be approximately £27,457 a year rising by annual increments to £30,493 a year for a post-Ph.D. Fellow. There is no teaching requirement associated with the post, however there may be the opportunity to undertake some teaching should the Fellow wish to do so. Research expenses up to £1000 per year and up to a total of £3,000 over the five years of the Fellowship may be paid.
Information on accommodation, if required, is available at request. Research Fellows are entitled to free commons (i.e. meals) for the duration of the fellowship except when kitchens are closed. Research Fellows are members of the College’s Governing Body.
