Clare College Cambridge

Research Associate Scheme Academic Year 2018-2019


The College Research Associate Scheme offers short-term collegiate affiliation to postdoctoral researchers and others in similar posts in Cambridge who would like a college association of some kind but do not have one.  They are normally expected to be available to assist with the College's teaching and should not hold similar memberships at other colleges.  They are elected for one year at a time.

The criteria for selection to the scheme include academic excellence, the College's need for teaching in particular areas, and the applicant’s ability to contribute to College life. The offer is made in the expectation that the College Research Associate will reciprocate by supervising for the College or running a College event, if required.  Supervision will be paid at the usual rate.

Applications are invited from all fields but this year are particularly strongly welcomed from individuals who are willing to teach:

  • Mathematics
  • Philosophy
  • Physiology, Development and Neuroscience
  • History of Political Thought

College Research Associates are offered dining rights, access to the College's sports facilities and gardens, and occasional use of College public rooms.

Applications should be sent by email to Sophie King, Fellowship Administrator, by Monday 16 April 2018. 

Please note that in exceptional circumstances the Fellowship Committee will also consider applications made at other times during the academic year.
