College Research Associates

King’s College makes up to six appointments to College Research Associates each year in any subject. Applicants must at the time of appointment be of post-doctoral standing, and may be graduates of any university. They must at the time of appointment, and for the duration of the appointment, be employed by the University of Cambridge in a post-doctoral research role. There are no conditions of age or subject attached to these positions, but candidates would normally be early in their research careers.

Applications can be from individuals or from groups of up to three. Appointments will be for two years, potentially renewable for a further two years. Applicants must, at the time of appointment, have funding for at least a full year.

Applicants must submit a plan for academic activities linked to their research which will be undertaken 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 £600 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.
