MOSES AND MARY FINLEY RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP

Darwin College proposes to elect a stipendiary Moses and Mary Finley Research Fellow from 1 October 2007. The Fellowship is available for research into the ancient history of the Mediterranean world and/or the near East, down to the end of the 6th century AD. Preference will be given to those who interests coincide with those of the late Sir Moses Finley.

The Fellowship is tenable for four years and is intended for an outstanding researcher who is completing, or who has recently completed, their Ph.D. Degree. No candidate should have completed in total more than seven years of postgraduate research by 1 October 2007.

The successful candidate will be subject to the Statutes and Ordinances of the College, including the obligation to reside in Cambridge for at least two-thirds of each University term, unless excused by the Governing Body. The Finley Research Fellow will become a member of the Governing Body and will have Fellows' dining rights as well as the entitlement to a College room or flat, subject to availability, for which a charge will be made. An annual allowance will be available for travel and research expenses.
