Research Fellowship Competition
The Governing Body of Magdalene College expects to elect two stipendiary (Junior) Research Fellows with tenure for three years from 1 October 2018. (The Nevile Fellowship, endowed through the generosity of Trinity College, Cambridge, will be in the Sciences; the Lumley Fellowship, endowed through the generosity of H R L Lumley, will be in the Humanities). Applications are invited from graduates, from any university. Candidates should normally have completed two or three years of research and may have written a PhD dissertation. The current gross stipend (2017-18) for a Research Fellow is £22,500 p.a. (subject to annual cost of living award). A reduced scale of stipend will apply to Research Fellows who are full-time students.
The deadline for applications is noon GMT on Tuesday 7 November 2017.
If you accept an offer, you will be required to supply the Bursar with a statement of any external funding and of your earned income from all sources and to notify the College of any change in funding during the tenure of your Fellowship. Please also note that it is a legal requirement for the College to receive from prospective Research Fellows either proof of British citizenship (or EU nationality) or a Home Office letter confirming entitlement to work in the UK. Magdalene College is an Equal Opportunities Employer.
The current gross stipend (2017-18) for a Research Fellow is £22,500 p.a. (subject to annual cost of living award). A reduced scale of stipend will apply to Research Fellows who are full-time students. A service charge will be made if the Fellow is resident in College. The level of service charge varies according to the allocated accommodation and is likely to be in the region of around £1,000-£1,700 per annum. If a Fellow is resident in College accommodation outside the College precincts then rent and normal utility bills will be charged. The net stipend paid to a Research Fellow will take into account any grant or stipend which the Fellow receives from other sources. A Research Fellow will receive all the privileges associated with an Official Fellowship and, in the case of a Research Fellow who has not yet taken the Ph.D. degree, the College may pay certain approved University Fees.
