St Catharine's College invites applications for the post of College Lecturer in General Physiology, with effect from 1 September 2001 (an earlier starting date might be agreed for an appropriate candidate). It is expected that the Lecturer will become a Fellow of the College. The principal duties of the post will be the Direction of Studies of undergraduates reading the first-year Physiology of Organisms course of the Natural Sciences Tripos (approximately fifteen people) and the provision of supervisions in this subject, both for St Catharine's students and, by exchange, for the students of other Colleges. The successful candidate will also be required to provide supervisions for the smaller number of St Catharine's students reading Physiology in second- and third-year courses.

This is a fixed-term appointment of three years. It is otherwise subject to the College Ordinance relating to College Lecturers (available on request). The stipend, which can be pensionable under the Universities Superannuation Scheme, will be at a point in the range £17,755 to £23,256 (equivalent to the University Assistant Lecturer scale), depending on age and experience.

The successful candidate will be encouraged to develop a link with an appropriate University-based research group and assistance will be provided in negotiating such a link. The College cannot, however, provide research funds.

Further particulars may be obtained from the Master's Secretary (tel. 01223 338349). Applications from suitably qualified Animal, Plant, or Microbial Physiologists, including a curriculum vitae and the names of three referees, should be sent to the Master's Secretary, St Catharine's College, Cambridge, CB2 1RL, by 28 February 2001.
