Christ’s College, Cambridge invites applications for a four-year stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship in a specified area of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, tenable from not later than 1 October 2020 and non-renewable.

A Junior Research Fellowship is intended for a researcher early in their career and, in this case, is restricted to applicants in one or more of the following subject areas: Anglo-Saxon Norse and Celtic; Architecture; Classics; Education; Geography; History; History of Art; Land Economy; Law; Linguistics; Politics and International Studies (POLIS).

The stipend for a Junior Research Fellow is currently £24,771 (with a PhD) and £20,275 (without a PhD) and the successful candidate will be afforded the full privileges of a Fellow of the College.

Applications must be submitted on-line via the Christ’s College website at  by 12:00 noon on Thursday 24th October 2019.  Reports from two referees must also be received by the same deadline for the application to be eligible.  Interviews are expected to be on or around Tuesday 14th January 2020 and further details of the award and of the competition are provided on the website.

A stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship for a successful applicant who does not have an automatic right to work in the United Kingdom (including anyone who is completing a PhD at an overseas institution) will be subject to the visa requirements of the United Kingdom. The College will give informal advice and assistance but ultimately it will be the responsibility of the candidate to obtain the necessary visa.

Christ’s College is an equal opportunities employer
