Conditions

  1. the candidate proposed by the College should be within three years of beginning his or her Cambridge post-doctoral career;
  2. the intended Fellow must be elected to a College Fellowship within three months of the Trust's grant commencing. 
  3. This can be either a full (Teaching) Fellowship or a Bye-Fellowship (or similar), but the category of Fellowship must carry with it a requirement to teach at least four hours a week (ie 80 hours per annum). (Colleges, as employers, may wish to take legal advice about issues of tenure for such posts);
  4. if an eligible College is not able to offer 4 hours per week on its own (perhaps in a ‘small’ subject) it might seek a joint teaching arrangement with another eligible College, although the Trust's award should be attached only to one College and payment will be made to that College;
  5. the sum paid by the Trust will be reduced pro-rata in the event that fewer than 80 hours' supervision are undertaken over the course of the academic year;
  6. a Newton Trust Teaching Fellowship normally starts in October and may be renewed for up to four years in total, providing:
    • (s)he continues to hold their present post-doctoral position;
    • (s)he continues to hold their College Fellowship.
    • the teaching need remains - if the number of hours taught per annum is below 40 for two years consecutively, the grant will not be renewed.
