Fitzwilliam College Staff Benefits Summary

Early Career Research Fellowships (Further particulars, including information about the College)

Closing date: 11 November

Applications are invited for an Early Career Research Fellowship in Classics, Education, English, Mathematics, Modern and Medieval Languages or Music.

The Fellowships will normally be tenable for three years from 1 October 2020. The Fellowships are open to graduates of any University, with no age limit, but will normally be awarded to candidates who have recently completed their PhD or are close to completion.

Responsibilities, Remuneration and Benefits

The prime duty of a Research Fellow is to pursue research. A report on the progress of that research will be required each year, and will be considered at an annual appraisal. Research Fellows are frequently invited, but not obligated, to undertake (for an additional payment) up to four hours of small group teaching per week. A mentor will be allocated throughout the period of the Fellowship.

The successful candidates will be elected to Fellowships of the College, with which certain obligations and privileges are associated; these include membership of the Governing Body of the College, the prime decision-making body which meets seven times each year. The College is an educational charity of which each Fellow is a Trustee. The appointments are subject to the Statutes and Ordinances of the College.

The 2019-20 pensionable rates are: pre-PhD £19,612 - £22,417, post PhD £21,236 - £23,754. These rates will be reviewed annually from 2020 in line with stipends generally within the College. A stipendiary Fellow already holding an award from another organisation, such as a Research Council or similar body, will be paid a stipend from the date such an award expires. Rent-free single accommodation will be offered in College, with a charge to cover services. An allowance, which is currently £3,340, is paid to any Research Fellow not resident in College, and study facilities are made available. The College operates a housing loan scheme which is designed to assist Fellows with the purchase of a residential property in the Cambridge area.

Research Fellows are entitled to all meals (either lunch or dinner) at College expense whenever the kitchens are open. Up to three of these meals each week may be assigned to guests; and further meals (for the Fellow and guests) are available at the Fellow’s expense. There is also a small tax-free allowance to cover out-of-pocket expenses incurred in the entertainment of students.

An annual allowance of £1,000 is provided for use for academic purposes including the purchase of books, and computing equipment or attendance at conferences. Unused allowances may be carried forward for up to three years. Additional grants may sometimes be made to assist with certain approved research expenses which are not covered by departmental, faculty or other sources.

Application Process

Churchill College, Fitzwilliam College, Murray Edwards College, Robinson College, Trinity Hall operate a Joint Application Scheme for Early Career Research Fellowships.

Full information regarding the Fellowships on offer, further particulars and registration details will be available at the Joint Application Scheme website on 9 October 2019.
