Research Fellowships (Sciences)

The Governing Body of St Catharine's College invites applications for election to two Research Fellowships tenable from 1 October 2021 for three years.  The Fellowships are open to graduates of any University who (i) are members of the College, or (ii) not being members of the College, are engaged in research in the Sciences.

Applications are welcome to: the stipendiary Fellowship, (with emoluments as of August 2019 at £21,814 pre-PhD, and £23,754 post-PhD), or the non-stipendiary Fellowship, open to those who have, or expect to have, secured post-doctoral funding support.

Fellowships will normally be awarded to those who have recently completed their PhD research, or are close to completion.  Candidates should not have been engaged in postdoctoral research for more than one year, nor have already held a College Research Fellowship.

A Research Fellow may undertake up to a maximum of six hours of undergraduate teaching per week during term, which will be remunerated separately, but will not be otherwise permitted to undertake paid work or to hold any other appointment, award or emolument, without the consent of the Governing Body.  Research Fellows are normally expected to spend the tenure of their Fellowship in Cambridge and to contribute to the life of the College, but permission may be granted for periods of research away from Cambridge.
