College Research Fellowships, 2011–12

Hughes Hall


The College intends to award at least two non-stipendiary postdoctoral Research Fellowships, tenable for three years initially. These Fellowships may be renewed for a further period of two years, making five years tenure in all. To be eligible, a candidate should normally have secured, or be in the process of securing, funding commensurate with postdoctoral standing in a Department, Faculty or other institution of, or associated with, the University. Candidates must be resident within the precincts of the University on entry to, as well as ordinarily during, the initial tenure of the Fellowship and, on election, be early in their research career. Formal approval for the Ph.D. Degree must have been obtained before the successful candidates will be able to take up (enter into tenure of) their Fellowships. There are no conditions of age or of subject attached to these Fellowships. Research Fellows are members of the Governing Body, eligible to sit on College committees, and will be expected to play an active role in the life of the College. They will be entitled to the normal privileges of Fellows of Hughes Hall; financial support may be available when attending meetings as participants, and towards expenses associated with their research.

Applications should be sent to Dr M. J. Franklin, Hughes Hall, Cambridge, CB1 2EW (email, by 10 January 2011, together with a curriculum vitae, the names of three referees, a statement of not more than 1,000 words outlining present and future research, intelligible to a non-specialist, and details of the applicant’s present and expected means of financial support. There is no separate application form. Applicants should ask their referees to write directly to Dr Franklin by that date. Candidates may be called for interview on 24 January 2011.

Pembroke College


The College hopes to elect not later than 1 April 2011 to the above Fellowship, with tenure from 1 October 2011. Candidates for the Research Fellowship should have recently completed or be about to complete a doctoral degree, and should be able to conduct research of outstanding quality on any aspect of the human propensity for violence and aggression. The tenure of the Fellowship will be for three years. The holder will be required to host a funded colloquium on their research in Cambridge during the term of the Fellowship, and to give public lectures in Britain and New York City to attend the publication of a book, to the cost of which the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation will also contribute. Like all Pembroke Research Fellows, the holder will be expected to do a limited amount of teaching for the College, but requires the permission of the Governing Body to undertake other paid work. The stipend currently ranges from £20,938 to £23,566 and is reviewed annually.

Applications, which are due by 17 January 2011, and which should include statements of previous research experience and of the research to be undertaken during the Fellowship, should be made online at, where further particulars and relevant links are available. Informal enquiries can be made to the Senior Tutor’s Assistant, Sally Clowes, at
