Lucy Cavendish College

FURTHER EDUCATION FELLOWSHIP

Applications are invited from women* for a Further Education Fellowship at Lucy Cavendish College, preferably for the Michaelmas Term 2004 (5 October to 3 December 2004). No specific duties are attached to the Fellowship, but the Further Education Fellow will be expected to reside in or near Cambridge and participate in College life.

The purpose of the Further Education Fellowship is to enable the holder to pursue her own intellectual interests in an academic environment and/or to follow recent developments in adult education, as well as to offer the opportunity for an interchange of ideas with the College on access to higher education.

Applications will be considered from women graduates who hold teaching posts in the United Kingdom in a college of further education or an institution involved with pre-university education in the public sector.

SIMMS SCHOOLTEACHER FELLOWSHIP

Applications are invited from women* for a Simms Schoolteacher Fellowship at Lucy Cavendish College, preferably for the Lent Term 2005 (18 January to 18 March 2005). No specific duties are attached to the Fellowship, but the Simms Schoolteacher Fellow will be expected to reside in or near Cambridge and participate in College life.

The purpose of the Fellowship is to enable the holder to pursue her own intellectual interests in an academic environment and/or to follow recent developments in education, as well as to offer the opportunity for an interchange of ideas on education or in specific academic fields.

Applications will be considered from women graduates who hold full-time teaching posts in the United Kingdom in a primary or secondary school (private or public sector) or an institution involved with pre-university education in the public sector.

For both Fellowships, certain meals will be provided and the Fellows will receive a stipend of £100 for the term. It is assumed that a salary will continue to be paid by the Fellow's employers and that substitute teaching will be provided at no expense to the Fellow.

Applicants for the above Fellowships should complete an application form which includes a statement of their proposed study project and contact details of two referees. Applicants should ask their referees to write direct to the College by the closing date.

Applications (five copies) and references should be sent to the Fellowship Secretary, Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge, CB3 0BU (tel. 01223 339240, e-mail aav20@cam.ac.uk) from whom further details can be obtained. Applications cannot be accepted electronically.

The closing date for receipt of applications and references is 16 April.

In submitting an application a statement from the applicant's employers should be enclosed to confirm that, if the applicant were to be offered either the Further Education Fellowship or the Simms Schoolteacher Fellowship, she would be released, preferably for the whole term, and also stating on what basis she would be released.
