Trinity College


Applications are invited from men or women for appointment, preferably from 1 October 1998, to a College Lectureship or Assistant Lectureship in Economics together with a Fellowship, tenable for five years in the first instance and thereafter to the retiring age. The successful applicant will assist in supervising and directing studies in Economics in the College, especially for the compulsory papers in applied and theoretical economics. A special interest in UK macroeconomics would be particularly welcome, but no-one with mainstream interests is excluded.

 The Lectureship is tenable with or without another salaried appointment in the University. For a Lecturer with no other post, the stipend will be on a scale roughly comparable with that for University Lecturers, with placing according to age and qualifications.

 Application should be made to the Senior Tutor, Trinity College, Cambridge, CB2 1TQ (from whom further particulars may be obtained). Applicants should send a statement of qualifications, publications, and teaching experience, and should also ensure that not more than three referees have written directly to the Senior Tutor on their behalf before the closing date of 2 February 1998.


The annual election of Research Fellows will be held on Monday, 5 October, 1998. Eligibility for the competition is restricted to those members of the College who have been engaged in research for between six months and three and a half years. Fellowships are offered in all branches of University studies without restriction of subject. The number of Fellows elected varies from year to year depending on the strength of competition; in recent years an average of six elections have been made.

 Each person elected will be a Fellow of the College under Title A for four years (less two weeks) from the date of the Election. However, Fellows under Title A are not required to reside in Cambridge, and may postpone for a time taking up the privileges and the stipend of the Fellowship. Broadly speaking, the emoluments and privileges may be enjoyed for a maximum of four years during the six years immediately following election.

 Fellows under Title A who reside within the University precincts and devote themselves to study and research receive a stipend of not less than £14,913 a year, less any emolument received from a source outside College. In addition, such Fellows are entitled to rooms in College (subject to certain conditions) and may take meals at High Table free of charge. A Title A Fellow who chooses to live in a College flat is charged rent at the married student's rate.

 Detailed rules of eligibility and for the submission of dissertations may be obtained from the Senior Tutor.
