Clare Hall


The Governing Body of Clare Hall proposes to elect a stipendiary Visiting Fellow in Comparative Religion for a period of one year from 1 October 1998 or an agreed date thereafter. There are no restrictions on age, sex or previous standing for this Fellowship, except that those who have previously held College Visiting Fellowships in Oxford or Cambridge are not eligible.

 The College and the Trust may give preference to candidates who are at an early stage of their careers, and would thus qualify for the full stipend of £10,415. However, in certain circumstances the College and the Trust might be willing to appoint a scholar of higher seniority who already holds an academic post and is thus in receipt of regular support. In such cases the scale of remuneration accompanying the Fellowship would be subject to negotiation. The Fellow will be entitled to an allowance of College Commons, and to rented accommodation in the College, subject to availability.

 The College and the Trust expect the Fellow to contribute to a deeper understanding of one or more of the non-Christian religions both in the academic community of Cambridge and among more general audiences. The manner of such a contribution, whether by public lecture, seminar or supervision of students, will be subject to discussion with the College and the Trust, who are both anxious that the Fellow will use the opportunities provided by the Fellowship to full advantage, to support the work of the University and the College, to further the aims of the Trust, and to pursue research within the field of religious studies. On completion of the Fellowship the Fellow will be asked to submit a short report on work accomplished.

 Applicants are asked to send, with their letter of application, six copies of the following documents:

(a) a curriculum vitae;
(b) a proposal, in not more than 1000 words, indicating how they would fulfil the aims of the Fellowship;
(c) the names of three scholars whom they wish to cite as referees.

The College will not itself seek references from scholars; applicants are themselves responsible for asking for letters of recommendation to be sent directly to Dr Michael Loewe, Clare Hall, Herschel Road, Cambridge, CB3 9AL. The closing date for applications is 31 January 1998. Candidates may be called for interview.
