Lucy Cavendish College, in the University of Cambridge, is offering one stipendiary and two non-stipendiary Research Fellowships for women who hold PhDs**. The appointments will be for one year in the first instance from 1 October 2008 and will be renewable for a further two years subject to satisfactory progress and annual reports. Successful candidates will be expected to become members of the College, to reside in Cambridge and to participate fully in College life.
SUTASOMA STIPENDIARY RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP Applicants should hold a doctorate in an Arts subject. The Fellowship is for study in the arts in a research area that relates scholarship to current issues facing the world.
NON-STIPENDIARY RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS The Ethel Cruickshank Research Fellowship is open to applicants who hold a doctorate in a scientific subject and who are in receipt of full funding for research in any area of science.
For the Greenwood Bidder Research Fellowship there is no restriction on subject but in cases of equal merit, preference will be given to candidates working in the natural sciences, particularly the biological sciences. Candidates for this Fellowship should also hold a doctorate and be in receipt of full funding.
For the Sutasoma Research Fellowship, the stipend will be £16,500 per annum, depending on funding already available to the candidate. Candidates who wish to hold the Research Fellowship on a part-time basis will also be considered, in which case the stipend would be pro-rata. There is no stipend for the Ethel Cruickshank or Greenwood Bidder Research Fellowships.
Both stipendiary and non-stipendiary Research Fellows are entitled to a meals allowance and a travel/book grant. The Sutasoma Research Fellow may also be offered subsidised accommodation in College, subject to availability.
