Cambridge Early Career Fellowships

For Cambridge UTOs and CTOs to apply for a term of leave


About

To me CRASSH represents intellectual life here at its best.

Shruti Kapila (History), Early Career Fellow, Michaelmas 2010

The Early Career Fellowship scheme at CRASSH, jointly funded by the Isaac Newton Trust and the Schools of Arts & Humanities and Humanities & Social Sciences, allows Cambridge University Teaching Officers and College Teaching Officers to apply for an additional term of research leave in order to develop a new research project. Up to ten fellows  are appointed each year. The scheme is also open to UTOs and CTOs working in the department of Geography (supported by the School of Physical Sciences).


The competiton for  2018-19 has now closed.


Eligibility
All UTOs and CTOs who have been in post for less than five years at date of application are eligible, provided that they have obtained prior permission from their Faculty and/or College. UTOs must apply for leave under Statute D,II,6 (b) and the period of leave granted will not be reckonable for purposes of entitlement to sabbatical leave (granted under statute D,II,5).  This is a residential fellowship and successful applicants are expected to spend their period of research leave in Cambridge.

Provision
CRASSH  provides a forum for presenting work-in-progress and mentoring support through regular contact with its visiting fellows and interdisciplinary research community. The value of the award is set at a flat rate of £2,000 per fellow per term (if Easter Term leave is requested, the sum is reduced to £1,000). This amount will be transferred to the fellow’s Faculty or College to enable replacement teaching to be bought in. If the fellow’s teaching is split between a Faculty and a College, it will be the responsibility of the Faculty to negotiate the amount passed on to the college (up to a maximum of half the total).
