College Research Fellowships, 2011–12

Girton College


Applications are invited for a Research Fellowship to be held in any science subject, for the academical year 2011–12, and tenable for three years. The College normally awards a Science Fellowship each year. This is open to graduates of any university with no age limit, but is intended to support those at an early stage in their academic careers, and will normally be awarded to a candidate who has recently completed a Ph.D. Degree or is close to completion. The competition involves assessment of candidates’ submitted work, and interview. Those interested should note that the standard needed to progress to the later stages of the competition is extremely high. Overseas candidates should also note that the College cannot be responsible for payment of airfares should they be short-listed for interview.

The Emoluments of a Fellowship are reviewed annually (in August). The scale from 1 August 2010 will rise by two annual increments from £18,117 to £20,327 a year for a Research Fellow who has not proceeded to the Ph.D. Degree, and from £19,185 to £21,565 a year for a Fellow holding a Ph.D. Degree. Research expenses up to a total of £2,500 over the three years of the Fellowship may be paid.

The closing date for applications is noon on Tuesday, 11 January 2011. Short-listed candidates will be invited to submit work in late January, and final interviews will take place on Tuesday, 15 March 2011.

Further particulars and application forms are available from the Personnel office, Girton College, Cambridge, CB3 0JG, can be downloaded from, or requested via email to Please note that applications must be submitted by post only.
