The Library Syndicate invites applications for two Munby Fellowships in Bibliography for the tenure of 1 October 2024 to 31 July 2025.
The Munby Fellows will be free to pursue research of their choosing in any area of the wide fields of Bibliography and the History of the Book. It is, however, expected that the Fellows' research will be, at least in part, based directly or indirectly on the collections of the University and Colleges of Cambridge and likely to be of benefit, in the broadest sense, to scholars using those collections in the future. The Fellows are also expected to participate fully in the life and activities of the University Library, e.g. through participation in the Library's Research Institute and public engagement programmes (comprising activities such as talks, seminars, displays, participation in social media, and other events).
For 2024-2025, one fellowship is open to those pursuing research on any topic within this general framework. For the second, the Electors to the Fellowship will be particularly pleased to receive applications based on collections in Cambridge from beyond the European language areas, as these have been historically very under-represented. Any applications meeting the criteria for the second fellowship will automatically be considered for both. It is expected that non-stipendiary fellowships at Darwin College and St John's College respectively will be offered to the successful candidates.
The Fellowship is open to graduates in any discipline of any university and nationality. Applications will be evaluated by a panel comprising the Electors to the Fellowship and the following criteria will be considered, with preference given to scholars at post-doctoral or an equivalent level:
We welcome applications from individuals who wish to be considered for a part-time role or other flexible working arrangements.
We particularly welcome applications from candidates from a BAME background for these vacancies as they are currently under-represented at this level in our institution
