The College invites applications for up to ten individuals for admission to its MCR as Postdoctoral Research Associates in October 2010. This will be the sixth of an annual intake, the previous having proved extremely successful both for those admitted and for the College.

Candidates must, at the time of appointment, be of postdoctoral standing, and in the employ of the University with a research contract of at least two years’ duration. They may be graduates of any university. There are no conditions of age or subject attached to these positions, but candidates should normally be early in their research careers. Candidates will be selected by reference to their potential for contributing to the intellectual, educational, and social life of the College, and the graduate community. Please note that this is not a Fellowship.

A Postdoctoral Research Associateship will normally be tenable for two years with a possibility of one extension of a further two years, co-terminous with postdoctoral employment within the University. Against a fee of £100 a term PDRAs enjoy the normal privileges and facilities of the College that are available to graduate students, with the limited exception of certain events specifically associated with registered student status.

Application forms and further particulars may be obtained from the Tutorial Assistant, Doreen Kunze (email, tel. 332518), or the College website (

Applications and a single academic reference (unseen by the candidate) must be received by Friday, 13 August 2010, at the latest. Interviews are scheduled to take place in early September. The application form allows candidates the opportunity to explain their research and other interests, and to identify ways in which they feel they might be able to contribute to, and benefit from, the life of the College.
