Sidney Sussex College


The Governing Body of Sidney Sussex College is offering a Research Studentship commencing in October 2001. The holder of the Studentship must be, or seek to be, a candidate for the degree of Ph.D. in the University of Cambridge. The Studentship is tenable in any subject and is open to men or women from any country.

The holder of the Studentship must have graduated by August 2001, and election to the Studentship may be made conditional upon satisfactory results in degree examinations. The Studentship is intended for candidates who have already been awarded, or are likely to graduate with, First Class Honours or the equivalent. Election is in all cases conditional upon the person elected being accepted by the Board of Graduate Studies of the University. Application for acceptance by the Board is made through the Cambridge Intercollegiate Graduate Application Scheme (CIGAS), 4 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1RZ, England. In the competition for the Studentship, first consideration will be given to candidates who nominate Sidney Sussex as their College of first choice on CIGAS Form A. Preference will be given to candidates who will be under twenty-six years of age on 1 October 2001, though special circumstances will be taken into account.

The Studentship is subject to reviews of diligence and progress, and is renewable annually up to a maximum of three years. The Studentship will meet the cost of University and College fees. The level of maintenance payments will be determined after considering the successful candidate's income from other sources. The holder of the Studentship will receive at least £1,000 a year, and a Student without income from other sources would receive full support (£6,800 a year in the current year), and subject to annual review. In addition, the Student may apply for support for approved research expenses up to £350 a year.

An application form for this Studentship may be obtained from the Tutor for Graduate Students, Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, CB2 3HU, England. Completed applications must reach him not later than 1 March 2001. An elected Student will normally be required to come into residence as a member of the College in October 2001. It is normally possible to provide a room in College or in one of the College's hostels for a single person. A College flat may be available for a married person.
