New Alice Tong Sze Research Fellowship at Lucy Cavendish College

The successful candidate will take an active part in CRASSH and its programme of activities. 

CRASSH is delighted to announce that Lucy Cavendish College is offering a stipendiary Research Fellowship for a woman who holds a PhD. The successful candidate for the Alice Tong Sze Research Fellowship will be accommodated within CRASSH and take an active part in the Centre and its programme of activities. 

The appointment will be for one year in the first instance from 1 October 2019 and will be renewable annually until 30 September 2022, when the Research Fellowship will terminate. The Research Fellowship will be for research in the Arts, Humanities or Social Sciences, or between these areas and the sciences, in an area that relates scholarship to current interdisciplinary issues facing the world, particularly with relevance to women.

The stipend for the Research Fellowship will be £21600 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. The successful candidate will be expected to undertake four hours of small group teaching a week during term (for which an additional payment will be made), to become a member of the College, normally to reside in Cambridge and to participate fully in College life. 

Stipendiary Research Fellows are entitled to a meals allowance and a small travel/book grant and may also be offered subsidised accommodation in College, subject to availability, or a living out allowance. The College endeavours to be family-friendly.

The appointment will be conditional upon the successful candidate providing satisfactory evidence of the right to work in England in the capacity offered, together with proof of entry clearance/leave to remain.
