Christ's College


The Governing Body of Christ's College invites applications for one or two Open Research Fellowships available in any subject and tenable for a period of four years from 1 October 2002. Successful applicants conducting research in parasitology or biological and clinical sciences relevant to cancer would be appointed to the Fantham Fellowship or the J. B. and Millicent Kaye Prize Fellowship respectively. Similarly, successful applicants conducting research in Mathematics or Physics would be appointed to a Clayton Fellowship. Tenure of all Junior Research Fellowships may be split by a period, or periods, of intermission (unpaid) not exceeding two years in duration, to enable the holder to pursue research away from Cambridge. Application is open to holders of a degree from, or current members of, any university in the British Isles, who by 1 January 2002 will have completed at least three but not more than ten terms of full-time research. Candidates should normally not have passed their twenty-eighth birthday by 1 January 2002; candidates above this age should give the reasons why the age restriction should be waived in their case.

As a Junior Research Fellow, you would receive a stipend on a scale of £14,473 to £18,471, depending on experience and length of tenure of the Fellowship. Financial support from other sources will be taken into account. Fellows living out of College will receive a supplement of approximately £2,850. Research Fellows are entitled to seven free meals a week and the use of a room free of charge. A limited amount of teaching in College is permitted, for which payment will be made at the usual rate. Research expenses may also be paid.

Application forms are available on the College's website (http://www.christs.cam.ac.uk/jrf/) and may also be requested in writing from the Master's Secretary, Christ's College, Cambridge, CB2 3BU. Completed forms should be sent to the Master's Secretary so as to reach her not later than Monday, 15 October 2001. Candidates should also arrange for two people familiar with their work to send references to the Master's Secretary so as to reach her not later than Monday, 15 October 2001. The appropriate forms for the use of referees will be included with the Application Forms. Late applications cannot be accepted.

Short-listed candidates will be invited by letter (dated Thursday, 1 November) to submit by Tuesday, 13 November three copies of any published or unpublished work with which they wish to support their application; this work need not be a formal dissertation, but it should illustrate the nature and quality of their research work. The successful candidate(s) will be notified by the end of January 2002.
