The Governing Body of Downing College, University of Cambridge, invites applications for election to a three-year Graham Robertson Research Fellowship in the fields of Architecture, History of Art, Music or Philosophy, starting on 1 October 2023 and continuing until 30 September 2026. The Fellowship is not renewable after the end date.
Established by the generous bequest of Graham Robertson, this Research Fellowship is intended to support the early careers of exceptionally talented researchers in the Arts and Humanities who will go on to make significant contributions to their fields. The successful candidate will become a full Fellow of the College and member of the Governing Body, and will be entitled to all the rights and privileges of a Fellow.
The Graham Robertson Research Fellowship is open to postgraduates of any university working in the fields of Architecture, History of Art, Music or Philosophy.
The ideal candidate will have a strong background in a relevant discipline and should have completed (or be approaching completion of) an outstanding doctoral thesis. Candidates must be within three years of PhD conferral (i.e. your doctoral degree cannot have been conferred before 30 September 2020).
Although this is a research post, Research Fellows are expected to take advantage of opportunities to undertake a small amount of University and/or College teaching up to four hours per week in term time (remunerated separately). Research Fellows should expect to participate broadly in the governance and communal life of the College.
The successful applicant must provide satisfactory evidence of eligibility to work in the UK.
