Pembroke College


With the Unilever Centre for Molecular Informatics

Diligenti Ltd are supporting a Research Fellowship in Molecular Informatics to be held jointly at Pembroke College and the Unilever Centre for Molecular Informatics. The appointment will run from 1 January 2002 or as soon as mutually convenient thereafter.

The Unilever Centre for Molecular Sciences Informatics has been established as part of the Department of Chemistry to exploit the opportunities offered by the phenomenal amount of data that is currently being generated in all the sciences. To do this, the Centre is assembling a team of scientists with expertise in chemistry, biology, materials science, and computing - to name just a few of the disciplines. The overlap between the disciplines represented will present great opportunities for discovery. In particular, the Centre aims to develop increasing synergy in the sciences by making data, hypotheses, and new ideas available through the use of computational methods.

Pembroke College has strong academic connec-tions with the corporate world. The College would be particularly interested in candidates with backgrounds in theoretical chemistry, biology, or biochemistry.

The Research Fellow will develop new methods for the analysis and display of complex multi-dimensional data which varies in time. Principal data sources will be from biomedical and molecular sciences. The outcome will be novel tools which will allow deeper insight into the nature of the data and its underlying structure. The Research Fellow will also be expected to carry out a moderate amount of undergraduate teaching for Pembroke College, up to a maximum of six hours a week in term-time; this will be separately remunerated.

Applications are sought from candidates with a strong research record in the fields described above and with experience in mathematical modelling. The appointment is for an initial three-year term, with the possibility of renewal thereafter. The salary is negotiable depending on experience. Completed applications should reach the College by Friday, 17 August 2001.


The College hopes to elect not later than 1 January 2002 to the R. A. Butler Research Fellowship in the Arts or Humanities or Social Sciences, with tenure from 1 October 2002. Candidates may be either men or women and should be graduates of, or graduate students at, a university in the British Isles. There is a preference for candidates under twenty-eight years of age but older applicants are not excluded. The tenure of the Fellowship will be for three years. The holder will be permitted to do a limited amount of teaching for the College, but would require the permission of the Governing Body to undertake other paid work. The stipend currently ranges from £15,822 to £16,775 and is reviewed annually. Further financial particulars are available on request.

Applications, which are due by midday on Friday, 7 September 2001, should only be made on forms obtainable as stated below. These stipulate the details required.

In each case, further particulars and application forms are available from the Senior Tutor's Secretary, Mrs Pat Whitby, Pembroke College, Cambridge, CB2 1RF (e-mail pat.whitby@pem.cam.ac.uk), and from the College's website (http://www.pem.cam.ac.uk/jobs).

Pembroke College is an equal opportunities employer.
