College Research Associates

Homerton College intends to appoint up to six College Research Associates from 1 October 2014 or commencing later in the academic year 2014-15. Candidates must be of postdoctoral standing, and may be graduates of any university. They would normally hold awards made in a national or international competition for the purpose of conducting research in the University of Cambridge or at an associated research institution. There are no conditions of subject attached to these positions, but the successful applicants are likely to be within six years of having completed the requirements for the PhD (or equivalent) degree. Candidates will be selected by reference to their ability to contribute to the intellectual, educational, and social life of the College.

The appointment of College Research Associate will normally be co-terminous with the postdoctoral award in the University of Cambridge.  Various College benefits are offered including meals, though no stipend or honorarium will be payable, and no room or accommodation will be provided. The positions do not carry any teaching obligation, but involvement in College life is welcomed. Such involvement might, for example, take the form of outreach projects, mentoring students or teaching.

Appointment to these positions will follow scrutiny by a panel set up by College Council.
