Emmanuel College


The Governing Body of Emmanuel College invites applications for the Meggitt Fellowship in Mathematics, tenable for five years from 1 October 2004. Candidates may be working in any area of pure or applied mathematics, including the interface of mathematics with the biological sciences. Applicants will normally be expected to have had some post-doctoral experience, and to have carried out at most ten years of post-graduate research and teaching since gaining their Bachelor's Degree.

The stipend for the Meggitt Fellow is related to the national academic scale, and will be £20,383 or £22,025, according as the Fellow is resident or non-resident in College. In addition to pursuing his or her personal research, the Fellow will be required to teach six hours per week for Emmanuel College during Full Term, and to participate in the annual selection of undergraduates at Emmanuel to read the Mathematical Tripos. By arrangement with the appropriate University Department, the Meggitt Fellow will also normally be required to teach annually one course of sixteen or twenty-four lectures in Part III of the Mathematical Tripos.

The Meggitt Fellow will be given a start-up grant of up to £10,000 for the purchase of computing and research equipment. Additional benefits provided for the Fellow will be annual grants of up to £1,500 for academic travel and general research expenses, and £252 for the purchase of academic books. The Fellow will be given the option to live in College (although no married accommodation can be provided), and will be provided with lunch and dinner in Hall free of charge.

Applications. Application forms and further particulars may be requested in writing from the Master's Secretary, Emmanuel College, Cambridge, CB2 3AP, enclosing a large self-addressed envelope. They can also be downloaded from the College website at www.emma.cam.ac.uk/meggitt. Candidates should send their completed application forms by ordinary mail to the Master's Secretary so as to reach her by 5.00 p.m. on Friday, 21 November 2003, at the very latest.

Applications will not be accepted by e-mail or fax. Candidates should also arrange for three people familiar with their research to send references to the Master's Secretary so as to reach her by 5.00 p.m. on Friday, 21 November 2003 (it is the candidate's responsibility to ensure that these references are sent). Referees may send their reports by fax to 01223 331867 provided a hard copy follows by ordinary mail.
