Junior Research Fellowships (JRFs) are non-stipendiary Fellowships with enhanced dining rights and an annual research allowance. They are in any subject and tenable for one year from 1 April or 1 October 2020 (dependent upon funding), renewable for a further two years.
The Fellowships are open to graduates of any university employed within Cambridge University or its allied institutions for the duration of their tenure. There is no age limit, but the Fellowships are designed to support those who are 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 is close to completing by the start date.
Candidates must produce satisfactory evidence that they have adequate funds to support their Fellowship. The Fellowships do not cover the cost of bench fees or other University fees or laboratory charges.
Intending candidates should submit a fully completed application using the forms below; detailed instructions are included in the 'Further particulars' document. All applications and references must be submitted as email attachments. Postal applications will not be accepted.
The closing date for April or October 2020 entry is 7 October 2019.
