Research Fellowships 2017 - NOW CLOSED

Junior Research Fellowships- the deadline for applications has now passed and the competitions are closed


The College intends to appoint up to two Junior Research Fellows, in two separate competitions, from 1 October 2017. One competition is open to graduates who are members of Queens’ College engaged in research in any field. The other is open to any person, not necessarily a member of Queens’ College, engaged in research in the field of Mathematics.


The purpose of the Junior Research Fellowships is to offer early-career academics of exceptional intellectual calibre the opportunity to pursue excellent research for up to three years at Queens’ College, Cambridge.

The Junior Research Fellowships are early-career appointments open to graduates who are well advanced in their doctoral research or who have recently completed it, and they may be stipendiary or non-stipendiary. The Fellowship is stipendiary in the case of those for whom it would be their first substantial salaried academic or research appointment.  Salary starts at £21,605 for a postdoctoral appointment (or £18,714 for a pre-doctoral appointment), together with benefits worth over £4,000 p.a. Candidates who have recently taken up, or are about to take up, a salaried postdoctoral research position within the University of Cambridge are eligible and welcome to apply for a non-stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship. Successful candidates will be encouraged to take an active part in the academic life of the relevant department of the University of Cambridge.
