Sidney Sussex College

RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP IN MATHEMATICS, THE SCIENCES, ENGINEERING, MEDICINE, OR VETERINARY MEDICINE

The College Council hopes to make an election to a Research Fellowship tenable for three years, to commence on 1 October 2005. Candidature will be restricted to those pursuing, or intending to pursue, research in Mathematics, the Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, or Veterinary Medicine. It is likely that the successful candidate will be close to submission of his or her Ph.D. Degree at the time of his or her election or will have completed within the last three years.

The pensionable stipend of a Research Fellow is £12,340 a year, or £14,044 if the Fellow holds the Ph.D. Degree. Single residential accommodation will be made available without charge. Alternatively, a non-pensionable allowance of £2,602 will be made to a Fellow not resident in College. The total stipend may be reduced by the Council as a result of other emoluments a Fellow may receive. A non-resident Fellow will also be entitled to a room in College and to Fellow's dining and other rights. Increments of £520 are payable in each of the second and third years of tenure to Ph.D. Degree holders, and the level of Research Fellowship emoluments is normally reviewed when the stipends of University and College officers are reviewed - such a review is currently pending.

The holder of a Research Fellowship will be encouraged to teach for the College for up to six hours a week but would require the permission of the Council to undertake other paid work.

Applications should reach the Master's Secretary by 8 September. Each application should comprise six collated sets, each set to include:

(a) a completed application form (obtainable from the Master's Secretary);

(b) a list of the applicant's publications and a description of the research work which the applicant has already done, of the work currently in progress and, so far as is possible, of the lines along which investigation will next proceed. The description of research should not exceed 1,000 words in length and it is important that it should be understandable by a non-specialist. Applicants should be prepared, if required, to submit copies of their published or unpublished works;

(c) six copies of a curriculum vitae;

(d) the names and addresses of three persons who will be providing references (see below).

Applicants should arrange for references from three persons, at least two of whom should have recent knowledge of the applicant's work, to be sent direct to the Master's Secretary, Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, CB2 3HU. References must be received by 8 September. No e-mail applications will be accepted.

RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP

The College Council is seeking to make an election to a Research Fellowship tenable for three years, to commence on 1 October 2005. There is no restriction as to subject. Candidates must be matriculated members of Sidney Sussex College. It is likely that the successful candidate will be close to submission of his or her Ph.D. Degree at the time of his or her election or will have completed within the last three years.

The current pensionable stipend of a Research Fellow is £12,340 a year, or £14,044 if the Fellow holds the Ph.D. Degree. The Fellow will be entitled to a room in College and to Fellows' dining and other rights. Single residential accommodation will be made available without charge, but for those choosing to live in private accommodation there is a non-pensionable allowance of £2,602 a year. Increments to the stipend of £520 are payable in each of the second and third years of tenure to Ph.D. Degree holders, and the level of Research Fellowship emoluments is normally reviewed annually when the stipends of University and College officers are reviewed - such a review is currently pending.

The holder of a Research Fellowship will be encouraged to teach for the College for up to six hours a week, for which additional payment is made. The permission of the Council is required for other paid work and all emoluments received must be disclosed to the Council. Council may reduce the Research Fellowship stipend in the light of other income received.

Applications should reach the Senior Tutor by 8 September. Each application should comprise six collated sets, each set to include:

(a) a completed application form (obtainable from the Senior Tutor);

(b) a list of the applicant's publications and a description of the research work which the applicant has already done, of the work currently in progress and, so far as is possible, of the lines along which investigation will next proceed. The description of research should not exceed 1,000 words in length and it is important that it should be understandable by a non-specialist. Applicants should be prepared, if required, to submit copies of their published or unpublished works;

(c) six copies of a curriculum vitae;

(d) the names and addresses of three persons who will be providing references (see below).

Applicants should arrange for references from three persons, at least two of whom should have recent knowledge of the applicant's work, to be sent direct to the Senior Tutor, Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, CB2 3HU.
