Isaac Newton Trust


INT Academic Career Development Fellowships offer the opportunity for exceptional scholars in selected subjects in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences to contribute to both research and teaching within a Faculty and College environment, offering excellent preparation for subsequent academic appointments at Cambridge or elsewhere.  

INT Academic Career Development Fellows will have an opportunity to:

  • enjoy protected research time to pursue an independent project;
  • be embedded in a Faculty research and teaching culture;
  • teach in College in small groups (in some cases, to act as a College Director of Studies);
  • teach undergraduate and/or Masters students in a Faculty setting;
  • be mentored by Faculty members in academic skills (teaching, research, publication, grant applications, academic administration)
  • become a member of the INT’s Fellowship community.

Eligible candidates will be at an early stage of their career typically with less than three years’ experience post-PhD/equivalent, exclusive of any career breaks.  They will either already hold a PhD, or have an equivalent qualification, or will have submitted their doctoral dissertation by the Fellowship application deadline.  

Two INT Academic Career Development Fellowships have been offered for October 2022:

  • in Philosophy (with Magdalene & Newnham Colleges)
  • in Politics of the Environment (with Lucy Cavendish College)

More about these Fellowships

The two ACD Fellowships offered in 2022 are part of a pilot for a potential programme.  INT will review progress and conduct wider consultation with Colleges and with the two Schools concerned to decide whether to offer further ACD Fellowships in 2023 and possibly beyond.

Please contact the Director if you are interested in finding out more about INT's Academic Career Development Fellowship Programme.
