This year six colleges—Churchill College, Fitzwilliam College, Murray Edwards College, Robinson College, St Edmund's College and Trinity Hall—invite applications for eight Early Career Research Fellowships which will normally be tenable for three years from 1 October 2023.

Applications are invited following Arts subjects: Ancient History and Classical Archaeology; Archaeology; Asian and Middle Eastern Studies (AMES); Geography (Arts side); History; History of Art; History of Science; Social Anthropology.

The Fellowship is open to graduates of any gender, of any university, with no age limit, but will normally be awarded to candidates who have recently completed their PhD or are close to completion.  These Fellowships are initial (normally) post-doctoral positions appropriate to the start of an academic career.

The prime duty of a Research Fellow is to engage in research; Research Fellows are also welcome to undertake supervision teaching, if they wish, within a limit of six hours per week. Research Fellows are not expected to undertake any additional administrative duties, but as trustees should attend meetings of the College’s Governing Body.

Applications will be considered by all participating colleges offering Fellowships in the relevant subjects.
