Fitzwilliam College


The Governing Body of Fitzwilliam College invites applications from men and women for at least one stipendiary or non-stipendiary Research Fellowship tenable for three years from 1 October 2005.

The Fellowships are open to candidates who are at present carrying out research at whatever stage for the Ph.D. degree of Cambridge or any other British or Irish university, or who have recently (normally defined as less than one year before the date of application) completed their course of study for this degree; and also to candidates for the Ph.D. Degree at other universities who are graduates of a British or Irish university.

Research Fellowships are not awarded to enable candidates to complete their Ph.D. Degree dissertations, but for a programme of further research.

Subjects are restricted to: Biological Sciences, Linguistics and Phonetics, Modern and Medieval Languages, Oriental Studies, Philosophy and Theology. Research students of Fitzwilliam College may apply without restriction of subject. Candidates for the Sciences need to certify that the University or a related institution in Cambridge will provide space and resources for their research.

Where a stipend is paid, a Fellowship can be pensionable under USS. A stipendiary Fellow already holding an award from another organization, such as a Research Council or similar body, will be paid a stipend from the date such an award expires. Stipends are reviewed at the same time as University stipends. The current rates are pre-Ph.D.: £13,655-£15,679; post-Ph.D. £14,667-£16,706, under review, with an additional allowance, which is currently £2,466, for any Research Fellow not resident in College. A non-stipendiary Fellow will be entitled to the living out allowance and to the full privileges of a Research Fellow at the College, as set out in the further particulars.

The Fitzwilliam Trust has established a fund from which grants may be made to assist with certain approved research expenses. In addition an annual allowance of £500 is provided for each Fellow to be used for academic purposes.

Before applying, please obtain further particulars, including details of privileges and responsibilities applicable to all Research Fellowships, an application form, and two referees forms, either by sending an A4 self-addressed envelope to the Master's Secretary, Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, CB3 0DG, or from the Fitzwilliam College website at http://www.fitz.cam.ac.uk/vacancies. Applications should be sent to the Master no later than 3 February 2005.

Selected candidates will be invited at the end of February 2005 to submit two copies of a dissertation or other written work by 7 March 2005. Short-listed candidates will be called for interview towards the end of April 2005 when it is expected that an offer will be made.
