Fitzwilliam College


The Governing Body of Fitzwilliam College invites applications from men and women for one non-stipendiary Research Fellowship in any subject from 1 October 2011. The Fellowship is designed for applicants who have secured external post-doctoral funding. The tenure will normally be for up to three years, the length dependent on the period of such external funding.

Election will be dependent upon the applicant having secured post-doctoral funding by the time the award is taken up, although candidates may apply before the outcome of such applications is known.

A non-stipendiary Research Fellow will be entitled to a living out allowance of £3,070 and to the full privileges of a Research Fellow at the College, as set out in the further particulars which can be found at Candidates are asked to access these in order to ascertain the application process.
