Academic vacancies


Teaching in Chemistry

Fixed term contract, for four years

Applications are invited for a Fellowship in Class IV, offered on a non-renewable, fixed term basis, tenable for four years, from not later than 1 October 2017.

Applicants for this position should hold an appointment in the University of Cambridge and not hold a continuing Fellowship at another college. The two posts will be held in conjunction and the holder must remain in the employment of the University throughout the duration of the tenure of this Fellowship.

Candidates must be willing to undertake at least 4 hours per week of College teaching of undergraduates during University terms (this corresponds to 80 hours a year). Payment for teaching will be made at the normal College rates.  In addition, the Fellow will be entitled to receive an annual payment of £2,800, contingent upon completing 80 hours of teaching per annum. The Fellow will be a member of the College’s Governing Body and entitled to additional benefits, including seven free meals per week (lunch or dinner), taken in College.

A letter of application (there are no forms) should be sent to to arrive no later than noon on Thursday 3rd August 2017.  This should include a curriculum vitae with details of qualifications, publications and any teaching experience.  Candidates should arrange for two referees to send their references direct to, if possible so that references are received by the above closing date. (It is not necessary for referees to write a new reference:  a copy of a full reference sent in connection with the applicant’s current University appointment will suffice.)  Short-listed candidates may be invited for interview, expected to be held on or about Wednesday 16th August 2017.
