Christ’s College, Cambridge invites applications for a stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship (four-year fixed term) in specified areas of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, tenable from no later than 1 October 2023 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 & Celtic; Architecture; English (limited to pre-1800 literature); Linguistics; Modern & Medieval Languages; Music; Philosophy. 

A Junior Research Fellowship offers an opportunity to carry out novel research in a stimulating academic environment.  A successful applicant is expected to be either a graduate student, probably in the latter stages of research leading to a PhD degree (or equivalent), or a post-doctoral researcher who has completed their PhD Degree after 1st January 2022. 

The stipend for a Junior Research Fellow is currently £25,627 (with a PhD) and £21,135 (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 20th October 2022.

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 Wednesday 11th January 2023.  Further details of the Fellowship 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 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.

The College also welcomes applicants from those who already have postdoctoral support.   For further details see
