Jesus College


Applications are invited for two Research Fellowships, tenable for three years from 1 October 2000, to be held in any subject. The Fellowships are open to graduates of, or research students in, universities in the United Kingdom. It is hoped to elect men or women who, on 1 October 1999 will, in the College's view, have completed not more than four years of research. Any application from a person who completed the course for his or her first degree before 1 June 1995 should, therefore, be accompanied by a statement of his or her occupation or employment since completing that course.

A Research Fellow may be invited to undertake a small amount of undergraduate teaching during Term, but will not be permitted to undertake other paid work or to hold other offices and awards except by permission of the College Council.

A Research Fellow is entitled to the privileges of a Fellow, including rooms and some meals. Some privileges will be available immediately after election, in December 1999, before admission to the Fellowship on 1 October 2000. Remuneration for a Research Fellow who has not proceeded to the Ph.D. Degree ranges at present from £11,120 in the second year of research to £11,900 in the fourth, subject to a deduction if the Fellow is resident in College. Research Fellows not resident in College receive a 'living-out' allowance, currently of £1,054 a year. Children's allowances are also payable. Remuneration of a post-Ph.D. Fellow ranges at present from £12,178 to £13,930 with the same allowances, deductions, and charges (increase in rates pending). Further details of the Fellowships and application forms may be obtained from the Research Fellowships Secretary, Jesus College, Cambridge, CB5 8BL.

The completed application form, together in each case with a statement of not more than 1,000 words outlining the applicant's present and proposed research, must be received in the College by 17 September 1999. Candidates must also arrange that testimonials are sent direct to the College, to be received not later than this same date, by two referees familiar with their work.

At the beginning of October 1999, short-listed candidates will be asked to submit two copies of a dissertation or other written work by 11 October 1999. Candidates should therefore ensure that they can be easily contacted at this time. If this work is not received by the deadline, the candidate will be deemed to have withdrawn from the competition. The submitted work need not be in its final form but must provide evidence of outstanding originality and promise. Candidates will not normally be called for interview.
