Trinity College


Trinity College intends to elect up to two Senior Research Fellows, in the Arts or Humanities, with effect from 1 October 2006 (or an agreed later date). The College regards a Senior Research Fellowship as being of academic standing comparable to that of a distinguished research professorship at a major university, and applicants are expected to have a correspondingly distinguished record of achievement in research. The stipend, for a Fellow not receiving regular remuneration from other sources, will fall within the scale of stipends paid by Cambridge University to holders of University Professorships.

Senior Research Fellowships can be held until the retirement age (currently 67), but there is a statutory requirement that continuation of tenure after each period of not more than five years is subject to the College Council's being satisfied that the Fellow is continuing to make contributions of high value to his or her subject of study. Further particulars, including details of emoluments and terms of appointment, and a guide to the information required in the application, may be obtained from the College's website (http://www.trin.cam.ac.uk/vacancies) or from the Master's Secretary, Trinity College, Cambridge, CB2 1TQ, to whom applications should be addressed. The envelope containing the application should be marked 'Senior Research Fellowship' and should reach the College by 17 October 2005. Applicants should ask not more than three referees to write directly to the Master, Trinity College, Cambridge, CB2 1TQ, marking the envelope 'Senior Research Fellowship', ensuring that the references reach the College by the same date (17 October 2005).
