Junior Research Fellowship at Jesus College, Cambridge (U.K.)

Junior Research Fellowship
University of Cambridge -Jesus College

Applications are invited for three Research Fellowships, one to be held in 
Sciences, including scientific studies in the fields of Geography, 
Archaeology and Anthropology, and two in the Arts and Social Sciences. 
The Fellowships are fixed-term three year Research Fellowships normally 
commencing on 1 October 2014, though there may be grounds for a different 
starting date as described in the further particulars posted on the Apply 
link below.

The Fellowships are intended for researchers early in their careers. 
Successful candidates are expected to be either graduate students, 
probably in the latter stages of their research leading to a PhD Degree, 
or post-doctoral researchers who have recently been awarded their PhD 
Degree. Candidates who have undertaken more than four years of full-time 
research are unlikely to be considered. The College is prepared to 
consider exceptions to these criteria and candidates have the opportunity 
to present a case for this during the application process.

Remuneration for a Research Fellow is set by reference to the Cambridge 
general stipend and salary scale and will start from 20,172.  The College 
is sometimes able to assist in the provision of housing for those Research 
Fellows with spouses or partners.

The application process is available online at 
from 5 August 2013. Applications must be received by 1pm on Wednesday 4 
September 2013. Short-listed candidates will be asked to submit two copies 
of written work up to a maximum of 40,000 words by Thursday 17 October 
2013.  Candidates will not normally be called for interview.  The College 
is an equal opportunities employer.
