Churchill PostDoctoral By-Fellowships

last modified Jul 02, 2013 07:38 PM

Churchill College seeks to appoint up to 10 Postdoctoral By-Fellows from among the postdoctoral researchers of the University of Cambridge and its associated research institutes.

These appointments, which will run for two years in the first instance from 1 October 2013, with the possibility of renewal for a further two years, are intended to strengthen the already significant community of postdocs among the Churchill Fellowship. The College hopes to appoint a further 10 Postdoctoral By-
Fellows in 2014. The By-Fellowships will provide membership of the SCR, some dining rights at College expense, access to sports facilities and participation in social and academic events in the College.

Applicants must hold an established and salaried postdoctoral research position or personal fellowship in the University or one of its associated research institutes. Applications are welcome in any subject. Appointments will be made on the basis of academic distinction and potential contribution to the academic community at Churchill College. These positions involve no formal teaching requirement, although undergraduate teaching may be available in some subjects, but it is expected that appointees will participate
in our existing mentoring scheme for postgraduate students or contribute to the College in other ways.

Application is by CV and letter, in which, in no more than 750 words, applicants must describe their research, and explain its importance and what they will bring to the Churchill academic community. Applicants must also arrange for two academic referees to write on their behalf. Both applications and references must be received by Mrs Noelle Caulfield, Fellowship Secretary, at Churchill College, by 31 July
