Hong Kong Link Research Fellowship/College Lectureship in Law

Corpus Christi College seeks to appoint a Research Fellow/Lecturer in Law from October 2015 (or as soon as possible thereafter) for a fixed term of three years. Applications are invited from researchers in any fields of legal scholarship. However, it may be an advantage to offer supervision in one of the areas in which the College has a teaching need, namely Criminal Law, Constitutional Law, Land Law, EU Law and Equity. It is envisaged that the successful candidate will be a scholar in the early stages of his or her career for whom a short-term post would be an attractive opportunity to enhance their research and academic profile. He or she will be elected a Fellow of the College, and will carry the title of Hong Kong Link Research Fellow/Lecturer in Law.

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.

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.
