College Research Associates

Since 2014 King’s College has appointed a number of College Research Associates (CRAs) each year in both sciences and arts and humanities on the basis of an application outlining research to be performed within King’s. This research could involve work with King’s Fellows or doctoral students, use of college archives or research facilities, or the writing of an article by a group of Associates.

Research Associates have access to the SCR, library and other College facilities. They have some rights to lunch and dining in College and can apply for limited research expenses through the Research Committee. Research Associates are encouraged to take part in College life, and are expected to give presentations of their work at talks and seminars during their tenure.

The College aims to appoint up to six College Research Associates in 2016, three in sciences, three in arts and humanities. The competition for this year is now closed. Any further competitions in future years will be advertised on this section of the King’s website; applicants must have funding for a full year at the time of appointment.
