St Catharine's College


Sponsored by British Aerospace plc in conjunction with the Department of Engineering, Cambridge University

Applications are invited for the 1998 Sir Frederick Page Research Fellowship to be held at St Catharine's College, Cambridge. This is an outstanding opportunity to be appointed a Research Fellow under a scheme sponsored by British Aerospace plc (BAe) leading to academic and industrial experience of a unique kind.

 Applicants, male or female, must be graduates of a university and should have demonstrated ability to conduct rigorous research such as completion of a Ph.D., although a formal postgraduate qualification is not a prerequisite of application. The Fellowship will be for two years at St Catharine's College, during which time the Fellow will conduct research in the University Department of Engineering that is relevant to the contemporary challenge of the sponsoring Company in engineering science, design and/or management. The appointment is intended to be part of a broader pattern of career development under which, on completion of the Fellowship, the successful applicant will take part in a personal scheme of development with BAe for a further three years. The objective of this is to attract a person of outstanding quality, capable of aspiring to the higher levels of technical and engineering leadership.

 The stipend of the Fellowship will be in the range of £18,000 to £20,000 a year, depending on whether residence in College is required or not. In addition, Research Fellows are entitled to Senior Common Room privileges, including a generous number of free lunches and dinners at High Table, and an allowance for travel costs to attend relevant international conferences. The closing date for application is 25 November 1997. Further particulars are available from the Master's Secretary, St Catharine's College, Cambridge, CB2 1RL (tel. 01223 338349).
