Hughes Hall

RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS

The College intends to award at least two non-stipendiary post-doctoral Research Fellowships, tenable for three years initially. It is hoped that successful applicants will be able to enter into tenure on 1 January 2004, if suitable candidates present themselves. These Fellowships may be renewed for a further period of two years, making five years' tenure in all. Candidates who have already held a Junior Research Fellowship at an Oxford or Cambridge College will not normally be considered. To be eligible a candidate should normally have secured, or be in the process of securing, funding commensurate with post-doctoral standing in a Department, Faculty, or other institution of or associated with the University; be resident within the precincts of the University on entry to, as well as ordinarily during, the initial tenure of the Fellowship; and, on election, be early in their research career. Formal approval for the Ph.D. must have been obtained before the successful candidates will be able to enter into tenure of their Fellowships. Aside from these stipulations, there are no conditions of age, or of subject attached to these Fellowships. Research Fellows are members of the Governing Body, eligible to sit on College committees and will be expected to play an active role in the life of the College. They will be entitled to the normal privileges of Fellows of Hughes Hall; modest financial support may be available when attending meetings as participants and towards expenses associated with their research. Applications should be sent to Dr M. J. Franklin, Registrary, Hughes Hall, Cambridge, CB1 2EW, by 12 November 2003, together with a curriculum vitae, the names of three referees, a statement of not more than 1,000 words outlining present and future research intelligible to a non-specialist, and details of the applicant's present and expected means of financial support. There is no separate application form. Applicants should ask their referees to write directly to Dr Franklin by that date. Candidates may be called for interview on 12 November 2003 or subsequently.
