COLLEGE RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS, 2000-01

Girton College

RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS

Applications are invited for Research Fellowships tenable from 1 October 2001 for three years, to be held in any subject. The College normally awards two Fellowships each year, one in the Arts and one in the Sciences. These are open to graduates of any university with no age limit, but are intended to support those at an early stage in their academic careers, and will normally be awarded to candidates who have recently completed their Ph.D. or are close to completion. The competition involves assessment of candidates' submitted work and interview. Those interested should note that the standard needed to progress to the later stages of the competition is extremely high. Overseas candidates should also note that the College cannot be responsible for payment of air fares should they be short-listed for interview.

The emoluments of a Fellowship are reviewed annually. From 1 October 2000, the stipend is £10,619 a year for a Fellow who has not proceeded to the Ph.D. Degree and £13,328 a year, rising by two annual increments to £14,678 a year, for a post-Ph.D. Fellow. Additional benefits include residence at moderate charge or a living-out allowance of £2,000. Research expenses up to a total of £1,500 over the three years of the Fellowship may be paid.

The closing date for applications is Tuesday, 26 September 2000 for those applying for an Arts subject or Tuesday, 3 October 2000 for a Science subject. Short-listed candidates will be invited to submit work in mid-October, and final interviews will take place in late November or early December.

Further particulars and application forms are available from the Secretary to the Research Fellowship Committee, Girton College, Cambridge, CB3 0JG. (Please state on the envelope whether an Arts or Science Application is required.)

MARGARET SMITH RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP

The Margaret Smith Research Fellowship, tenable for three years from 1 October 2001, is offered for research to a graduate student whose field of research lies in eastern and western religions (including comparative religion and mysticism) or alternatively for research based on either Arabic or Persian literature (or both).

The emoluments and conditions are equivalent to the main competition. The closing date for applications is Tuesday, 26 September 2000. Short-listed candidates will be invited to submit work in mid-October, and final interviews will take place in late November.

Further particulars and application forms are available from the Secretary to the Research Fellowship, Girton College, Cambridge, CB3 0JG. (Please state Margaret Smith Research Fellowship on the envelope.)
