Munby Fellowship in Bibliography, 2002-03: Notice

The Library Syndicate invite applications for the Munby Fellowship in Bibliography, tenable for the academical year 1 October 2002 to 30 September 2003.

The Munby Fellow will be free to pursue bibliographical research of his or her own choosing. It is, however, expected that the Fellow's research will be, at least in part, based directly or indirectly on the collections of the University and Colleges of Cambridge and likely to be of benefit, in the broadest sense, to scholars using those collections in the future. The Fellow will have no departmental or other staff duties and responsibilities.

The Fellowship is open to graduates in any discipline of any university and nationality. Preference will be given to promising younger scholars at postdoctoral or an equivalent level. The stipend will be £18,000.

A non-stipendiary Research or Visiting Fellowship at Darwin College will be available to the successful candidate, if not already a Fellow of a Cambridge College. Fellows in these categories are members of the Governing Body of the College and may take meals in the College without charge.

Applications (one copy only) should reach the Deputy Librarian, University Library, West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DR, by 15 September 2001, and should include the following particulars:

(a) a curriculum vitae;
(b) a statement of the research proposed;
(c) the names and addresses of two referees. No testimonials should be sent with the application.

An election will be made in December 2001. There are no interviews.

Prospective candidates are invited to write to the Deputy Librarian for further information.
