Christ's College


The Governing Body of Christ's College invites applications for the A. H. Lloyd Research Fellowship, tenable for a period of four years from 1 October 2006, for work in any of the following subjects: Medieval or Modern History; English; Modern and Medieval Languages; and Pre-historical or Medieval Archaeology. Tenure may be split by a period, or periods, of intermission (unpaid) not exceeding two years in duration, to enable the holder to pursue research away from Cambridge. Applicants should hold a first degree qualification from a university in the British Isles and be well advanced with their post-graduate studies. They should not hold a Fellowship at another Cambridge College. It is intended to give the successful applicant the opportunity to participate in collegiate life, to the mutual benefit of the individual and the College, with the aim of enhancing the individual's prospects of appointment to an established academic position.

The initial stipend for an A. H. Lloyd Research Fellow is currently £12,691 (without a Ph.D.) or £15,560 (with a Ph.D.), rising by three annual increments to £14,487 or £17,723 respectively. Fellows living out of College receive a supplement of £1,748 (without a Ph.D.) or £3,748 (with a Ph.D.). Stipends are reviewed annually. Financial support from other sources will be taken into account. Research Fellows are entitled to the use of a room in College free of charge and seven free meals each week. Research expenses may also be paid.

Application forms are available on the College website at http://www.christs.cam.ac.uk/info/fellowship, and may also be requested in writing from the Master's Assistant, Christ's College, Cambridge, CB2 3BU. Completed application forms should be sent to the Master's Assistant so as to reach her not later than 6 June 2006. Candidates should also arrange for two people familiar with their work to send references to the Master's Assistant by the same date. The appropriate forms for the use of referees will be included with the application forms. Late applications cannot be accepted. Short-listed candidates will be invited to submit by 26 June four copies of any published or unpublished work with which they wish to support their application: this work need not be a formal dissertation, but it should illustrate the nature and quality of their research work. The successful candidate(s) will be notified by 13 July.


Applications are invited for a Levy-Plumb Graduate Studentship award tenable at Christ's College from October 2006 from candidates with an outstanding undergraduate record and who are intending to research in a subject within the Humanities for a Cambridge Ph.D. Degree. The total annual value of the Studentship could be up to £14,000 for up to three years (Ph.D.) or four years (M.Phil. plus Ph.D.). Continuing tenure of the award is conditional upon the successful candidate continuing to apply for other sources of support (AHRC studentships, Cambridge Domestic Research Studentships, etc.). In cases where the costs of study had been only partially met from other sources, the Studentship would then be a top-up award.

The Studentship is open to graduates of any university. Applicants would be expected to have been awarded high First Class Honours or equivalent in their final examinations as an undergraduate and normally to have received their first degree not earlier than 2005. Application forms may be obtained from the Admissions Office, Christ's College, Cambridge, CB2 3BU (e-mail admissions@christs.cam.ac.uk). Completed applications must be returned in time to be received no later than 26 June 2006.
