Christ College, University of Cambridge, invites applications for a stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship. The Fellowship will normally be tenable for four years from not later than 1st October 2019 and is not renewable.

This year a stipendiary JRF is open to those whose research is principally in one or more of the following subject areas: Asian & Middle Eastern Studies, Archaeology, Anthropology, English, History & Philosophy of Science, Modern & Medieval Languages, Music, Philosophy, and Theology.

In addition to pursuing research, it is hoped that a Research Fellow will take a full part in College life and activities. They are expected to undertake some undergraduate teaching during term, for which payment will be made at normal supervision rates. The Research Fellow will be a member of the Governing Body, eligible to sit on College committees, with the full privileges of a Fellow.

Applications are invited from candidates who hold a first degree, or a higher degree or who are studying for a higher degree. Candidates are advised that a Junior Research Fellowship is intended for a researcher early in their career and offers an opportunity to carry out novel research in a stimulating academic environment. A successful applicant is expected to be either a graduate student, probably in the latter stages of research leading to a PhD Degree (or equivalent), or a post-doctoral researcher who has completed their PhD Degree after 1st January 2018.

Candidates should not hold or have held a stipendiary research fellowship at another Oxford or Cambridge college.
