Joint Application Scheme For Early Career Research Fellowships 2017
Applications are invited for one stipendiary Research Fellowship in Arts/Humanities or Mathematics, which will normally be tenable for three years from 1 October 2017. The Fellowships are open to graduates, men or women, of any University, with no age limit, but will normally be awarded to candidates who have recently completed their PhD or are close to completion. The function of these Fellowships is as initial (normally) post-doctoral positions appropriate to the start of an academic career.
The prime duty of a Research Fellow will be to pursue research and they will be expected to provide a written report on the progress of their research each year.
Churchill College, Fitzwilliam College, Murray Edwards College, Robinson College and Trinity Hall operate a Joint Application Scheme for Early Career Research Fellowships. Applications will be considered by all Colleges offering Fellowships in the relevant subject. A total of seven Fellowships is offered but candidates are advised that competition is likely to be intense; last year over 1000 applications were received.
Candidates are warned that they are responsible for checking their eligibility to take up the post under UK immigration rules.
