Christ’s College, Cambridge invites applications for three stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships (four-year fixed term) in specified areas of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, tenable from not later than 1 October 2021 and non-renewable.
A Junior Research Fellowship is intended for a researcher early in their career, who has completed or expects to complete their PhD Degree after 1st January 2020 and, in this case, is restricted to applicants in one or more of the following subject areas:
- Stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship: Asian & Middle Eastern Studies; Anthropology; Archaeology; English; History & Philosophy of Science; Modern & Medieval Languages; Music; Philosophy; Theology.
- A H Lloyd Junior Research Fellowship: Archaeology; English; Modern & Medieval Languages.
- W H D Rouse Junior Research Fellowship: Classics; Indian Languages; Indo-European Philology.
(Applications submitted for Archaeology, English or Modern & Medieval Languages will be considered for both the Stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship and the A H Lloyd Junior Research Fellowship. However applications for Classics, Indian Languages and Indo-European Philology will only be considered for the W H D Rouse Junior Research Fellowship.)
The stipend for a Junior Research Fellow is currently £25,217 (with a PhD) and £20,675 (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 www.christs.cam.ac.uk/jrf by 12:00 noon on Thursday 22nd October 2020. 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 13th January 2021. Further details of the Fellowship competition are provided on the website (www.christs.cam.ac.uk/jrf ).
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 www.christs.cam.ac.uk/vacancies.
