The purpose of Junior Research Fellowships is to offer men and women of exceptional intellectual calibre, for whom the Fellowship would be their first substantial paid academic or research appointment, an opportunity and freedom to pursue research in Cambridge on a topic of their choice for up to four years with no further duties. The Fellowships are available in all branches of University studies. More detailed information can be found in the Further Particulars.

References should be submitted on-line.  You will receive a link, by email, to the secure on-line Fellowship Application System once the candidate has submitted your details.  The deadline for receiving the Research Supervisor’s statement and the two Testimonial References is 11:59 pm on Thursday 31 August 2017.
