Research Fellowship in historical and philosophical sciences at Emmanuel College, Cambridge (U.K.)


Research Fellowships
 In Historical and Philosophical Studies
 University of Cambridge -Emmanuel College

 The Governing Body of Emmanuel College invites applications from men and 
women for three fixed-term three year Research Fellowships in any subject, 
and for one Alan Wilson Research Fellowship in the biological or medical 
sciences: all four Fellowships are for a three-year fixed term, and will 
commence on 1 October, 2014. Applicants must show promise of being able to 
pursue research at the highest international level, and should not have 
completed more than eight years of post-graduate study and research by 
October 1, 2014.

 The stipend for Research Fellows is related to the national academic 
scale. The current stipend for pre-doctoral (resp. post-doctoral) Research 
Fellows is 21,087 (resp. 22,458), if the Fellow is resident in College, 
and 23,208 (resp. 24,579), if the Fellow is not resident in College. 
Pre-doctoral Research Fellows will be responsible for any University fee 
they incur up to the level of a UK post-graduate student; the College will 
contribute the difference if a higher fee is applicable. A limited amount 
of teaching in College is permitted, for which payment will be made at the 
usual rate.

 Additional benefits provided for Research Fellows will include grants for 
research expenses and academic travel, a book allowance, and assistance 
with computing facilities.  Research Fellows will be given the option to 
live in College (although no married accommodation can be provided), and 
will be provided with lunch and dinner in Hall free of charge.

 The application process for the Fellowships is published online: 
www.emma.cam.ac.uk/resfell from 2 September, 2013, and applications must 
be received by 5 pm on 3 October, 2013.  Candidates must also arrange for 
two people familiar with their work to submit their references online to 
the College by 5 pm on 3 October, 2013.  In case of difficulties, please 
e-mail researchfellowships@emma.cam.ac.uk.

 Shortlisted candidates will be invited during the week beginning 18 
November, 2013 to submit copies of any published or unpublished work in 
support of their application. This work will be requested in both 
electronic form and as one hard copy, by 26 November, 2013.  Candidates 
will not be interviewed by the College. It is hoped to make elections to 
the Research Fellowships in the week beginning 20 January, 2014.
