Academic Vacancies

The Mastership

Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, is seeking to elect a new Master to succeed Mr. Stuart Laing, who will retire in August 2018 (in Corpus the term ‘Master’ is used for both male and female incumbents). Candidates must be of sufficient ability, distinction and experience, either in academic life or in some other field of activity, to provide leadership of a thriving, self-governing institution. An ability to represent and promote the College both within the University and to the outside world is important. The College has an active development programme in which it is expected that the Master will be closely involved. Under changes to the College Statutes currently being considered by the Privy Council, there will be no retirement age set for the Master. He or she shall serve one fixed non-renewable term of office for a period set by the College on appointment (with a maximum of 10 years). The salary will be commensurate with academic scales.

Those seeking to discuss the position further may contact Dr. Christopher Brookes at Further particulars are available here or may be obtained from the College Secretary by email: or by post: The College Secretary, Corpus Christi College, Trumpington Street, Cambridge, CB2 1RH, UK.

Applications will be actively considered from 23 January 2017. Those submitted by 8 February 2017 will receive full consideration. Later applications may still be considered at the discretion of the search committee. Applications should be sent to the College Secretary and should consist of a covering letter, a curriculum vitae, and the names and contact details of three referees who might be approached by the College.
