Stipendiary Research Fellowship

Applications are invited for one stipendiary Research Fellowship tenable for three years from 1 October 2015.

The Research Fellowship is open to graduates of any university who on 1 October 2015 will have completed not more than five years of research. Matriculated members of Corpus Christi College engaged in any area of research are eligible to apply. For those who are not already members of the College there is a restriction on the field of study. This year applications will be considered in the fields: Logic; Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic Studies; Plant Sciences, or Cellular Physiology.

Selected candidates will be invited to submit research papers, part of a dissertation, or other written work. However, the research papers or thesis chapter (or chapters) submitted must not exceed 20,000 words. The submitted work need not be in its final form, but must provide evidence of outstanding originality and promise. Research Fellowships are intended primarily as the first post-doctoral appointment for promising researchers. Those candidates in a laboratory-based subject area who have been selected to submit work will be asked to provide evidence, with their submitted work, that there is a laboratory in Cambridge University or in an associated institute, willing to host their research, providing the necessary finance and facilities.
