college research fellowships

Girton College


Applications are invited for a Research Fellowship, to be held in any arts subject, for the academical year 2009-10 and tenable for three years. 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 shortlisted for interview.

The emoluments of a Fellowship are reviewed annually. The present stipend is on a scale rising by two annual increments from £17,169 to £19,263 a year for a Research Fellow who has not proceeded to the Ph.D. Degree and £18,180 to £20,436 a year for a post-Ph.D. Research Fellow. 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 2009. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to submit work at the end of January, and final interviews will take place on Monday, 16 March 2009.

Further particulars and application forms are available from the Administrator to the Research Fellowship in Arts Committee, Girton College, Cambridge, CB3 0JG (email jrfs@girton.cam.ac.uk) or can be downloaded from the Girton College website (http://www.girton.cam.ac.uk/vacancies/research/).

Please note that the College has a responsibility to ensure that all employees are eligible to live and work in the UK. Please also note that applications must be submitted by post only.
