Early-Career Research Fellowship – Cambridge University

Corpus Christi College invites applications for one Stipendiary Early-Career Research Fellowship tenable for four years from 1 October 2022. Eligible applicants are expected to be at an early stage of their career. If postdoctoral, this is defined as being within two years from the date of a successful viva voce examination. No applicant who has been appointed to a permanent academic post in an institution of higher education at any time in their career will be eligible. If needed, the College may also offer help with the costs of a visa application.

This year applications will be considered in the following fields: Modern and Medieval Languages; Classics; Linguistics; Asian and Middle Eastern Studies.

An Early-Career Research Fellow is expected to pursue learning and research in their chosen field and publish the results. The College’s academic environment provides favourable conditions for research, which will be undertaken freely and without oversight on the part of the College.

Early-Career Research Fellows are full members of the College’s Governing Body. Rent free accommodation in College is provided (normally at Leckhampton). The stipend will be £21,135, rising in three annual increments to £24,871. Early-Career Research Fellows are permitted to teach up to six hours per week for additional remuneration, and are expected to participate in the intellectual life of Leckhampton (the College’s second site where most of its postgraduates are housed).

The deadline for applications is 6 January 2022, and interviews are expected to take place at the College (or by Zoom) in the week beginning 7 March 2022.
