Non-Stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships
King's College wishes to appoint, with effect from 1 October 2014, a Non-Stipendiary Junior Research Fellow. Applications are welcome in any area of the Sciences, Mathematics or Engineering. Candidates must have external funding support for their salary for at least two years from 1st October 2014. This includes, but is not restricted to, research appointments from the Royal Society, the British Academy, the various Research Councils of the United Kingdom, the Wellcome Trust or the Leverhulme Trust.
The main function of the 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.
The College offers generous help with accommodation. This takes one of two forms: single, rent-free accommodation in College or an annual subsidy (currently £4,000) for fellows who live out of College. There is also a shared equity scheme. A Research Fellow has the right to take free meals in College for most of the year. The holder of the Fellowship can apply for research support. This can be used for attending conferences, visiting other academic institutions and other such expenses (currently this is £1,000 but may change). Some support for preschool children is also available.
The external salary can be supplemented by undertaking teaching within the College. The additional remuneration obtained in this way would usually lie in the range £2,000 to £4,000 per annum, depending on the amount of teaching undertaken.
See the method of application. The closing date for applications is 9am on 14 May 2014; short-listed candidates must be available for interview on Thursday, 17 July 2014.
