University of Cambridge - Gonville & Caius College
Research Fellowships in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
The current stipend of a Research Fellow is £21,784, rising by three annual increments to £24,438.
Gonville & Caius College gives notice of its intention to elect two Research Fellows in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences in 2021. Candidates should be graduate students or post-doctoral researchers who will be in either their final year of doctoral research, or for whom not more than one year has elapsed since the first submission of their PhD. Research Fellowships are awarded to individuals of exceptionally strong academic record who have produced innovative doctoral research in any branch of the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.
The Fellowships will be tenable for four years from 1 October 2021. Research Fellows have the full entitlement of Fellows; they are expected to spend the tenure of their Fellowship in Cambridge and to contribute to the life of the College. Permission may be granted for periods of research away from Cambridge.
The College would like to make it clear that it would welcome applications from eligible candidates who are applying for or have already been appointed to a salaried post-doctoral position in a department or faculty in Cambridge. Such a person appointed to a Research Fellowship would be entitled to all the other benefits of a Research Fellow. If the post-doctoral position comes to an end before the end of the four-year fellowship, the College's usual stipend will apply for the remainder of the time.
The current stipend of a Research Fellow is £21,784, rising by three annual increments to £24,438. In addition, the College offers free or subsidised accommodation (some of it suitable for double occupancy), where available, and 10 free meals per week. There are also opportunities for College teaching (up to six hours per week), which attracts extra payment. Certain research expenses may be reimbursed. Research Fellows who choose to live outside the College are eligible for a housing allowance.
Candidates must submit with their application written work for assessors of at least 30,000 words in length, sometimes including a complete PhD of about 80,000 words, and/or published work, the main body of all of which must be in English, apart from quotations. The College is concerned with the quality rather than the quantity of work submitted, but it is important that sufficient material be available; candidates who submit less than the recommended amount of work may find themselves at a disadvantage.
Applications must be completed by Wednesday 30 September 2020. The election will be held on Friday 8 January 2021 and candidates should ensure that they will be available for interview on that day if so required. Candidates invited for interview should be aware that the College requires those offered a Fellowship to accept or decline at the time that they receive an offer, which will be made later on the day of the interview.
The College is an equal opportunities employer. Elections to Unofficial Fellowships are made purely on the basis on intellectual and academic attainment and promise.
