Fellowships are intended to support those at an early stage in their academic careers, and will normally be awarded to candidates who have recently completed their PhD research, or are close to completion.  Candidates should not have been engaged in full-time post-doctoral research for more than one year, nor have already held a College Research Fellowship elsewhere.

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 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.
