Early Career Research Fellowships Competition
Welcome to the Churchill College, Murray Edwards College, Robinson College, St Edmund's College and Trinity Hall Joint Application Scheme for Early Career Research Fellowships 2019.
This year five colleges invite applications for eight Early Career Research Fellowships which will normally be tenable for three years from 1 October 2019. For more information regarding Fellowships on offer this year, please click here. Early Career Research Fellowships are initial (normally) post-doctoral positions appropriate to the start of an academic career.Applications must be received online by 5.00pm on Monday, 12th November 2018. References must be received online no later than 5.00pm on Monday, 19th November 2018. Please note that the application deadline has been extended and that incomplete applications will NOT be accepted. Please make sure that your application and your referees' reports reach us before the closing date.To apply, you are required to register. This enables you to save your application and revisit/edit it before submitting, or to check its status. It is recommended that you register as soon as possible.
Early Career Research Fellowships are open to graduates, women and men, of any university who have recently or are about to complete their doctorates.
Candidates would normally be expected to have completed no more than 5 years full time equivalent post-doctoral research. Research Fellowships will not normally be awarded to people who have held comparable post-doctoral positions.
Successful candidates will normally have submitted their theses by the commencement of the Fellowship.
The statements of research should be no more than 1,000 words outlining the work candidates would submit in support of their applications, if requested, and the research they propose to do if elected. Please note that it will be read by people outside, as well as within, the candidate's own discipline and should therefore be intelligible to scholars in other subjects.
Applications must be submitted online by 5.00pm on Monday, 12th November 2018.
Written material is not required at this stage, but it is essential to have written work readily accessible, because those candidates whose applications are selected for further assessment will be invited by 10th January 2019 to submit a copy of their chosen written work electronically. This must be received no later than midnight on Tuesday, 15th January 2019. Please ensure that your contact details on your application are kept up to date (preferably giving your e-mail and phone details).
The Colleges are concerned with the quality, rather than quantity, of the work submitted but, in order that an informed assessment may be made, it is important that sufficient material should be available. The work for submission to external assessors should be in the region of 12,000 words and no more than 20,000 words at the absolute maximum.
Submitted work should normally be in English but if candidates intend to submit work in a foreign language, they should give notice by indicating this on the Application Form where they enter the title of the work.
The application process begins week commencing Wednesday, 10th October 2018.
Applications, must be submitted through the website, and received by the administrator by 5.00pm on Monday, 12th November 2018. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
Two reports from independent referees, both of whom should be familiar with the candidate's research work, must be submitted through the website by 5.00pm on Monday, 19th November 2018. One of these referees should normally be your PhD supervisor.
Candidates who are selected to send samples of written work, must do so by midnight on Tuesday, 15th January 2019.
Candidates will be called to interview (by Murray Edwards College, Robinson College, St Edmund's College or Trinity Hall) in early March 2019. Churchill College does not interview candidates.
Elections will be made no later than 23rd March 2019.
Successful candidates will enter into their Fellowships on 1st October 2019.
