Christ's College


The Master and Fellows give notice that Professor Ben Pimlott, F.B.A. (Professor of Politics and Contemporary History at the University of London), will lecture on Creating a person: does biography matter? at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, 28 January 1998, in the Theatre, Christ's College.


The Governing Body of Christ's College invites applications for one or two Open Research Fellowships, tenable for a period of four years from 1 October 1998. Tenure may be split by a period, or periods, of intermission (unpaid) not exceeding two years in duration, to enable the holder to pursue research away from Cambridge. Application is open to holders of a degree from, or current members of, any university in the British Isles, who by 1 January 1998 will have completed at least three but not more than thirteen terms of full-time research. Candidates should normally not have passed their twenty-eighth birthday by Tuesday, 3 March 1998. (Please note: for the Open Research Fellowships Competition next year, i.e. in the academical year 1998-99, only those candidates who have completed at least three terms of research and not more than ten by 1 January 1999 will be eligible to apply.)

 Junior Research Fellows receive a pensionable stipend, which is on a scale £10,128 to £11,732 a year and, for those with a Ph.D. or equivalent, £10,890 to £12,572. Fellows living out of College will receive a supplement of approximately £2,500. Research Fellows are entitled to seven free meals per week and the use of a room free of charge. A limited amount of teaching in College is permitted, for which payment will be made at the usual rate. The College pays the University Composition Fee in respect of Fellows who are registered Graduate Students; other expenses, such as travel and typing costs, may also be paid. Financial support from other sources may be taken into account.

 Candidates should send to the Master's Secretary, Christ's College, Cambridge, CB2 3BU, so as to reach her not later than Tuesday, 3 March 1998:

(a) two copies of the application form, to be obtained from the Master's Secretary before Tuesday, 17 February. (Please note: application forms are to be requested in writing only; envelopes should be marked J.R.F.);
(b) two copies of a statement of not more than 1,500 words outlining their research (completed and proposed).

Candidates should also arrange for two people familiar with their work to send references to the Master's Secretary so as to reach her by the same date. The appropriate forms for the use of referees will be included with the application forms. Late applications cannot be accepted.

 Short-listed candidates will be invited by letter (dated Wednesday, 18 March) to submit by Monday, 30 March 1998, three copies of any published or unpublished work with which they wish to support their application. This work need not be a formal dissertation, but it should illustrate the nature and quality of their research work.
