Christ's College


The Governing Body of Christ's College invites applications for up to two Open Research Fellowships available in any subject and tenable for a period of four years from 1 October 2000. Successful applicants conducting research in parasitology or biological and clinical sciences relevant to cancer would be appointed to the Fantham Fellowship or the Kaye Prize Fellowship respectively. Similarly, successful applicants conducting research in Mathematics or Physics would be appointed to a Clayton Fellowship. Tenure of all Junior Research Fellowships 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 2000 will have completed at least three but not more than ten terms of full-time research. Candidates should also normally not have passed their twenty-eighth birthday by 1 January 2000.

Junior Research Fellows holding a Ph.D. will receive a stipend on a scale (under review) of £12,604 to £14,418 depending on experience and length of tenure of the Fellowship. Financial support from other sources will be taken into account. Fellows living out of College will receive a supplement of approximately £2,600. Research Fellows are entitled to seven free meals a 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. Research expenses may also be paid.

Application forms should be requested in writing only from the Master's Secretary, Christ's College, Cambridge, CB2 3BU, before Friday, 8 October (NB envelopes should be marked JRF). Completed application forms should be sent to the Master's Secretary so as to reach her not later than Monday, 18 October 1999. Candidates should also arrange for two people familiar with their work to send references to the Master's Secretary so as to reach her not later than Monday, 18 October 1999. 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invited by letter (dated Thursday, 4 November 1999) to submit by Monday, 15 November, three copies of any published or unpublished work with which they wish to support their application: this work need not be a formal dissertation, but it should illustrate the nature and quality of their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. Successful candidates will be notified by the end of January 2000.
