Non-Stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships

King's College wishes to appoint, with effect from 1 October 2015, one or more Non-Stipendiary Junior Research Fellows in any area of the Physical or Chemical Sciences, Mathematics or Engineering.

The main function of our Non-Stipendiary Fellowships is to offer researchers who have already secured external funding at Cambridge University the chance to participate in College life and enjoy the benefits of a College Fellowship. Applicants must therefore have external funding support for their salary for at least two years from 1 October 2015.

The closing date for the competition is 9am on Thursday 30 April 2015. Full details, including the method of application, are given on the Junior Research Fellowships page.

College Research Associates

King’s College will appoint up to six College Research Associates in 2015, three in sciences and three in arts and humanities. Applications can be from individuals or from groups of up to three.

Appointments will be for one year, potentially renewable for a further year. Applicants must at the time of appointment have funding for a full year.

Appointments are made by some members from the Research Committee on the basis of a research application outlining activities to be performed within King’s. This could, for instance, involve work with King’s Fellows or doctoral students, use of college archives or research facilities, or the writing of an article.

Research Associates have access to the SCR, the library and other College facilities. They have the right to lunch and dine in College with one High Table dinner and two lunches per week free of charge. Up to £500 per year of research expenses is available through the Research Committee. Presentation of their work to the Fellowship and Graduate student body will be expected of all Associates at some point during their tenure.

Details of competitions for College Research Associate positions and further particulars can be found in the Research section.

The deadline for applications is 9am on 18 May 2015.
