Corpus Christi College


Applications are invited for one non-stipendiary Research Fellowship, to begin on 1 October 2010. Applications are welcome in any subject. Candidates must have external funding support for their salary for the term of their Fellowship, which will be for up to three years. This includes, but is not restricted to, research appointments from the Royal Society, the British Academy, the various Research Councils of the United Kingdom, the Wellcome Trust or the Leverhulme Trust. The Research Fellowship is open to graduates of any university who on 1 October 2010 will have completed not more than five years of research.

The main function of the Non-Stipendiary Fellowships is to offer researchers who have already secured external funding at Cambridge University the chance to participate in College life and enjoy the benefits of a College Fellowship. Research Fellows will be full members of the College’s Governing Body.

The external salary can be supplemented by undertaking teaching within the College. The additional remuneration obtained in this way would depend on the amount of teaching undertaken. The College normally offers rent-free accommodation.

Applicants should complete the online application at

Two documents will be uploaded: a curriculum vitae, and a statement of not more than 1,000 words outlining the applicant’s present and proposed research. The details of two referees familiar with the applicant’s work should be given. The application must be completed by midday on 23 June 2010, and by this date the referees should upload their reference letters. Short-listed candidates must be available for interview on 9 July 2010.

Any enquiries should be addressed to The Research Fellowship Competition, Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, CB2 1RH (email
