College Research Fellowships

Trinity College


Trinity College intends to hold an election of Junior Research Fellows on Monday, 4 October 2010. The purpose of Junior Research Fellowships is to offer men and women of exceptional intellectual calibre, for whom the Fellowship would be their first substantial paid academic or research appointment, an opportunity to pursue research for up to four years. The Fellowships are available in all branches of University studies.

A Junior Research Fellow receives a stipend from the College of £23,699 a year (reviewable in line with academic stipends), less any emolument received from a source outside College. However, a Fellow who is still registered for a degree course will receive a lower payment until this study is completed. There are also various additional benefits. Fellows are entitled to rooms in College (if available and subject to certain conditions) and may take meals at High Table free of charge.

Further particulars may be obtained from the College website ( or from the Senior Tutor’s Clerk, Junior Research Fellowship Competition, Trinity College, Cambridge, CB2 1TQ (email These include details of the new eligibility criteria, which no longer lay down a rigid limit to the amount of time a candidate has spent in research. The deadline for applications is 4 p.m. on Monday, 1 March 2010.
