Junior Research Fellows

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.

New JRFs 2023

A thriving academic community

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 'Fellow Type' on our 'People' section.

Junior Research Fellowship Competition 2024

We are currently inviting applications for up to ten non-stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships under Title BI. Our new JRFs will work on innovative research and engage directly with contemporary issues, as well as supporting our students, providing them with mentoring and guidance to become the next generation of researchers.

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.

Junior Research Fellowships (JRFs) at Wolfson College include dining privileges and an annual research allowance. The Fellowships do not cover the cost of University/bench fees or laboratory charges. They are not specified by subject, and are tenable for one year from 1 January, 1 April, or 1 October 2024, and are renewable for a further two years, dependent upon funding.

Interested candidates should submit a fully completed application before the closing date at 12.00 on Monday 2 October 2023. The application and reference forms, along with relevant information are available below.

"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
