Girton College


Applications are invited for Research Fellowships, tenable from 1 October 2004 for three years, to be held in any science subject. These are open to graduates of any university with no age limit, but are intended to support those at an early stage in their academic careers. They will normally be awarded to candidates who have recently completed their Ph.D. Degree or are close to completion. The competition involves assessment of candidates' submitted work; a small number of candidates are then called for interview. Those interested should note that the standard needed to progress to the later stages of the competition is extremely high. Overseas candidates should also note that the College cannot be responsible for payment of air fares should they be short-listed for interview.

The Emoluments of a Fellowship are reviewed annually (in August). The present stipend is on a scale rising by two annual increments from £13,105 to £15,129 a year for a Fellow who has not proceeded to the Ph.D. Degree and £14,117 to £16,150 a year for a post-Ph.D. Fellow. Additional benefits include residence at moderate charge or a living-out allowance of £2,000. Research expenses up to a total of £2,500 over the three years of the Fellowship may be paid.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday, 1 October 2003. Short-listed candidates will be invited to submit work in mid-October, and final interviews will take place during the week beginning 8 December 2003.

Further particulars and application forms are available from the Administrator to the Yarrow Board, Girton College, Cambridge, CB3 0JG, downloaded from http://www.girton.cam.ac.uk/vacancies/research/science.pdf, or requested via e-mail from jrfs@girton.cam.ac.uk. Please note that applications must be submitted by post only.
