ROBINSON COLLEGE CAMBRIDGE

Isaac Newton / College Junior Research Fellowship 2022

Robinson College invites applications for election to an Isaac Newton/College Junior Research Fellowship, which is generously funded by the Isaac Newton Trust, starting on 1st October 2023, lasting for three years, until 30 September 2026.  The Fellowship is open to graduates working in Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic (ASNC), Architecture, Classical Literature and Linguistics, English, MMLL and Music. The holder of the Isaac Newton/College Junior Research Fellowship is expected to pursue full-time research based in Cambridge.

The Fellowship is open to graduates of any university; there is no age limit, but the Fellowship is designed to support those who are at an early stage in their academic careers, and it will normally be awarded to a candidate who has recently completed a PhD degree (or equivalent) or is close to completing. 

The stipend of a Research Fellow is at point 30 on the academic single spine (£24,948) with a 10 per cent reduction for an appointee who has yet to complete a PhD. The post is pensionable within USS. Research Fellows are entitled to heavily subsidised accommodation in College, subject to availability.

A Research Fellow becomes a member of the Governing Body of Robinson College and will be expected to contribute to the life of the College’s academic community.

Churchill College, Fitzwilliam College, Murray Edwards College, Robinson College, St Edmund’s College and Trinity Hall operate a Joint Application Scheme for Early Career Research Fellowships. 

Applications will be considered by all Colleges offering Fellowships in the relevant subject. A total of eight Fellowships are offered but candidates are advised that competition is likely to be intense; last year almost 1000 applications were received.

Full information regarding the Fellowships on offer, further particulars and registration details will be available at the Joint Application Scheme website from 7 October 2022:
