Sidney Sussex College


The College invites applications from men and women for a Research Fellowship tenable for three years in the study of Sino-Indian Liberalization. The appointment is associated with a College inter-disciplinary research project, launched in October 1997, which is comparing the processes of economic and political liberalization in India and China since about 1980. Preference will be given to applicants who are China specialists, and who are able to offer expertise on either the role of institutions (and especially the state) in the liberalization process or the impact of economic liberalization on environmental and income security. The successful candidate is likely to have completed a Ph.D. within the last three years.

The pensionable stipend of a Research Fellow is £9,762 a year, or £11,111 if the Fellow holds the degree of Ph.D. Increments of £412 are payable in each of the second and third years of tenure. A non-pensionable allowance of £2,058 will also be made to a Fellow not resident in College. The total stipend may be reduced by the College Council if the Fellow receives other emoluments. The Fellow will also be offered a room in College, and will be entitled to a Fellow's dining and other rights. It is hoped that the Fellow will take up the appointment not later than 1 October 1998.

An application form and further particulars should be obtained from the Master, Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, CB2 3HU, to whom applications should be sent to arrive not later than 6 March 1998. Applicants should give the names of three referees, and should ask their referees to send references to the Master by the same date.

The College is an equal opportunities employer.
