The Governing Body of Peterhouse, applying the benefactions of the late William Stone, former Scholar of the College, and of Sir Michael Sobell, intends to elect a number of Research Fellows, who will enter upon their tenure on 1 October 2004.

Candidates must by 1 October 2004 have passed all examinations required for a first degree at a university and must at the same date be not more than four years from the start of their Ph.D. Candidature will be restricted to graduates of, or those studying at, universities in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Candidates should obtain an application form from the Secretary to the Research Fellowships Committee or from the College website (www.pet.cam.ac.uk/vacancies/research-fellowship.html). They will be asked to name two or three referees who know their work, and to request them to write to the Master a letter supporting their candidature. The completed application form and the letters from referees must reach the Master by 5 January 2004.

The electors will make a shortlist of candidates who will be invited to submit dissertations or other written work. Some of these candidates will subsequently be invited for interview.

The annual remuneration of a Research Fellow is at present £16,178 (non-resident in College) or £14,380 (resident), with an annual book allowance of £360 and a travel allowance of up to £539. Stipends will be subject to deductions in consideration of emoluments from other sources. In the case of a Research Fellow who has not yet taken the Ph.D. Degree, the College may pay certain approved University fees. Research Fellows are expected to engage in full-time research, but may be permitted to teach for up to six hours a week and will be paid for this. Free rooms in College with service may be provided for a Fellow who is single. All Research Fellows are allowed seven free meals a week at the Common Table. There is an entertainment allowance in kind. The tenure is three years and in certain circumstances may be renewed for a further year. Up to one year's absence may be granted.

All correspondence should be directed to the Secretary to the Research Fellowships Committee, Peterhouse, Cambridge, CB2 1RD, England, (tel. 01223 330834, e-mail mh324@cam.ac.uk).

All correspondence should be clearly marked RFC.
