Junior Research Fellowship Competition 2023

Wolfson College invites applications for up to ten non-stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships under Title BI.

Junior Research Fellowships (JRFs) at Wolfson College include dining privileges and an annual research allowance. They are not specified by subject and are tenable for one year from 1 January, 1 April, or 1 October 2023 (dependent upon funding), renewable for a further two years. 

The Fellowships are open to graduates of any university, who are employed within Cambridge University or its associated institutions for the duration of their tenure. 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 a PhD degree (or equivalent qualification) or be close to completing by the start date.

Candidates must produce evidence of a research post within the University or associated institution. The Fellowships do not cover the cost of University/bench fees or laboratory charges.

Interested candidates should submit a fully completed application before the closing date at midday on Monday 3 October 2022. The application and reference forms, along with relevant information are available at the bottom of this page. 

A thriving academic community

Junior Research Fellows (JRFs) are a key part of the College, contributing to a vast spectrum of world-leading research, representing multiple University departments and hailing from diverse international backgrounds.

Wolfson College is home to an active research community of over 30 Junior Research Fellows, and each year it elects up to ten new Fellows under Title BI. All of our current JRFs can be found by selecting 'Junior Research Fellow" under 'Person Type' on our 'People' section. You can also read about our nine newest JRF Fellows appointed from January 2022.

"The College benefits enormously from the presence of early career academics. They bring new ideas to the fore, they mentor and inspire our graduate students, and they epitomize the diverse and international nature of our community." - Professor Jane Clarke, Wolfson College President.
