Closing date 4th September 2013
Junior Research Fellowship,
University of Cambridge -Jesus College.
Applications are invited for three Research Fellowships, one to be held in Sciences, including scientific studies in the fields of Geography, Archaeology and Anthropology, and two in the Arts and Social Sciences. The Fellowships are fixed-term three year Research Fellowships normally commencing on 1 October 2014, though there may be grounds for a different starting date as described in the further particulars posted on the Apply link below.
The Fellowships are intended for researchers early in their careers. Successful candidates are expected to be either graduate students, probably in the latter stages of their research leading to a PhD Degree, or post-doctoral researchers who have recently been awarded their PhD Degree. Candidates who have undertaken more than four years of full-time research are unlikely to be considered. The College is prepared to consider exceptions to these criteria and candidates have the opportunity to present a case for this during the application process.
Remuneration for a Research Fellow is set by reference to the Cambridge general stipend and salary scale and will start from £20,172. The College is sometimes able to assist in the provision of housing for those Research Fellows with spouses or partners.
The application process is available online at https://jrf.jesus.cam.ac.uk from 5 August 2013. Applications must be received by 1pm on Wednesday 4 September 2013. Short-listed candidates will be asked to submit two copies of written work up to a maximum of 40,000 words by Thursday 17 October 2013. Candidates will not normally be called for interview. The College is an equal opportunities employer.
