St John's College


Applications are invited from men and women who are graduates of UK universities or registered Graduate Students of the University of Cambridge. Applicants must be within four years of starting on full-time research on 9 February 2001. Allowance for a period of intermission may be given on application in certain circumstances.

Applications must be received by the Master of St John's College, Cambridge, CB2 1TP, by 9 February 2001. Application forms may be obtained from the Domestic Bursar's Office.

Candidates who are short-listed by the College Council by 10 March 2001 will be required to submit three copies of their writings to the College by not later than 15 March 2001: in the event of a Research Fellowship being offered and accepted, one of these three copies will be retained for the College Archives. The election will be made before 26 May 2001.

Successful candidates will enter into their Fellowships on 1 October 2001 and will vacate them on 30 September 2004. Tenure of the Fellowship is conditional upon the holder devoting himself or herself to research to the satisfaction of the College Council. For the first year there is no condition of residence. Thereafter the holder must carry out the research within the University of Cambridge unless the Council is satisfied that he or she is better able to carry out the research elsewhere. The Fellowship may be held in conjunction with a fellowship awarded by a Research Council or other similar body.

Provided that a Fellow has no emoluments other than remuneration for up to six hours' College or University teaching a week, the annual stipend for Fellows who are not full-time students working for a degree or other qualification is at present on the scale £17,238 to £18,915. A reduced scale applies to Fellows who are full-time students. The stipend for a Fellow who has other emoluments (other than up to six hours' teaching) will be reduced by the total amount of those other emoluments.

Accommodation in College is provided free of charge for non-residing Fellows; resident Fellows are charged for service and supplies. One meal a day is provided free of charge to all Fellows.
