Junior Research Fellowship
Stipendiary
FIXED-TERM CONTRACT FOR FOUR YEARS

Christ’s College invites applications for a four-year stipendiary Fellowship, tenable from not later than 1 October 2018 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: Architecture, Education, History, History of Art, Land Economy, Linguistics or Politics and International Studies.

The stipend for a Junior Research Fellow is currently £23,879 (with a PhD) and £19,485 (without a PhD) and the successful candidate will be afforded the full privileges of a Fellow of the College.

Applications must be submitted online via the Christ’s College website at
www.christs.cam.ac.uk/jrf by 12:00 noon on Thursday 26th October 2017.
Candidates must arrange for reports from two referees to be received by this
deadline for the application to be eligible. Interviews are expected to be on or
around Thursday 11th January 2018 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.
