About

Working at CRASSH gave me a research community which staved off feelings of isolation and broadened my sense of what the humanities are and what they can do, which has been enriching on a personal and intellectual level.
– Emily Kate Price

Cambridge Early Career Fellowships are for Cambridge University Teaching Officers and College Teaching Officers to apply for a term of leave.

The Early Career Fellowship scheme at CRASSH, jointly funded by 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 five 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 competition to select Fellows for 2022 – 2023 is now closed.

Eligibility

All UTOs and CTOs who have been in post for less than five years at the 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).
