COLLEGE NOTICES

Girton College

RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS IN THE ARTS

Applications are invited for Research Fellowships tenable from 1 October 2004 for three years, to be held in any arts subject. The College normally awards an Arts Fellowship each year. This is open to graduates of any university with no age limit, but is intended to support those at an early stage in their academic careers, and will normally be awarded to a candidate who has recently completed a Ph.D. Degree or is close to completion. The competition involves assessment of candidates' submitted work and 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. The present stipend is £13,105 a year for a Fellow who has not proceeded to the Ph.D. Degree and £15,129 a year, rising by two annual increments 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 Monday, 12 January, 2004. Short-listed candidates will be invited to submit work at the end of January, and final interviews will take place on Tuesday, 16 March, 2004.

MARGARET SMITH RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP

The Margaret Smith Research Fellowship, tenable for three years from 1 October 2004, is offered for research to a graduate student whose field of research lies in eastern and western religions (including comparative religion and mysticism) or alternatively for research based on either Arabic or Persian literature (or both).

The emoluments and conditions are equivalent to the main competition. The closing date for applications is Monday, 12 January, 2004. Short-listed candidates will be invited to submit work at the end of January, and final interviews will take place on Tuesday, 16 March, 2004.

Further particulars and application forms for both competitions are available from the Administrator to the Research Fellowship Committee, Girton College, Cambridge, CB3 0JG (e-mail jrfs@girton.cam.ac.uk) or downloaded from http://www.girton.cam.ac.uk/vacancies/research/arts.pdf. Please note that applications must be submitted by post only.
