Stipendiary; 4 years fixed term 

Stipend £27,396 (with a PhD) £23,149 (without a PhD)

The College invites applications for a stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship (four year fixed-term) in specified areas of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, tenable from no later than 1 October 2024 and non-renewable. 

A Junior Research Fellowship is intended for a researcher early in their career and, in this case, is restricted to applicants in one or more of the following subject areas: Classics; Education; History (limited to the History of Political Thought); History of Art; History and Philosophy of Science; Politics and International Studies; Theology. 

A Junior Research Fellowship offers an opportunity to carry out novel research in a stimulating academic environment. A successful applicant is expected to be either a graduate student, probably in the latter stages of research leading to a PhD degree (or equivalent), or a post-doctoral researcher who has completed their PhD Degree after 1 January 2023.

The stipend for a Junior Research Fellow is currently £27,396 (with a PhD) and £23,149 (without a PhD) and the successful candidate will be afforded the full privileges of a Fellow of the College. 

Applications must be submitted online via the Christ's College website at by 12 noon on Thursday 19 October 2023

Reports from two referees must also be received by the same deadline for the application to the eligible. Interviews are expected to be on or around Wednesday 10 January 2024. Further details of the Fellowship competition are provided on the website: .

A stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship for a successful applicant who does not have an automatic right to work in the United Kingdom will be subject to the visa requirements of the United Kingdom. The College will give informal advice and assistance but ultimately it will be the responsibility of the candidate to obtain the necessary visa.
