College Research Associate

Homerton College intends to appoint several College Research Associates from 1 October 2021 or commencing later in the academic year 2021-22. 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 eight years of having completed the requirements for the PhD (or equivalent) degree, and candidates who already hold (or intend to hold) a CRA or equivalent at another College will not be eligible. Candidates will be selected with reference to their ability to contribute to the intellectual, educational, and social life of the College. The College is committed to diversity and inclusion and welcomes applicants from all backgrounds.


The appointment of College Research Associate will be coterminous with the postdoctoral award held at the University of Cambridge or associated research institution. Appointment as a College Research Associate is for three years in the first instance (provided that postdoctoral status and funding remains in place), and Research Associates may apply after the initial three years for reappointment to a term specified by the Research Committee of College Council. Various College benefits are offered, including meals, involvement in College research events, the opportunity to receive training in undergraduate teaching, and the opportunity to get involved in Homerton Changemakers (Homerton Changemakers Cambridge). The position does not come with a stipend, a research allowance or accommodation. 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.
