College Research Fellowships

Jesus College


Applications are invited for a Research Fellowship held in Sciences. Applications are also welcome from candidates undertaking scientific studies in the fields of Geography and Archaeology and Anthropology. The Fellowship is a fixed-term three-year Research Fellowship normally commencing on 1 October 2010, though there may be grounds for a different starting date as described in the further particulars posted on

This Fellowship is intended for researchers early in their careers. Successful candidates are expected to be either graduate students, probably in the latter stages of their research leading to a Ph.D. Degree, or post-doctoral researchers who have recently been awarded their Ph.D. Degree. Candidates who have undertaken more than four years of full-time research are unlikely to be considered.

Remuneration for a Research Fellow is set by reference to the Cambridge general stipend and salary scale. The College is sometimes able to assist in the provision of housing for those Research Fellows with spouses or partners.

The application process is online. Details of the Fellowship and how to apply can be obtained from the College website at All applications must be received by 1 p.m. on Friday, 11 December 2009. Short-listed candidates will be asked to submit two copies of written work up to a maximum of 40,000 words by Thursday, 28 January 2010. Candidates will not normally be called for interview.

The College is an equal opportunities employer.



Peterhouse invites applications for a Fellowship and College Lectureship in either ancient, extra-European, modern British, or modern European History.

The duties will include a minimum of 120 hours teaching, direction of studies, and the interviewing of applicants for undergraduate admission. A Fellow is expected to be engaged in research of a high academic standard.

The starting salary will be £26,609 a year, which it may be possible to enhance by accepting further responsibilities. Other benefits include a research allowance of £1,085 a year, an entertainment allowance, and seven free meals a week at the Common Table.

The appointment is for five years from 1 October 2010 (or earlier by mutual agreement), subject to a probationary review after three years.
