Advertising the Fellowship

Advertising the Fellowship:

Where the Trust’s offer is conditional on the College raising sufficient funding to cover the remainder of the costs, the Fellowship may not be advertised before this condition has been met and full funding has been secured.

Posts should be filled in open competition on intellectual excellence, as usual. 

Colleges are free to set their own Fellowship stipend according to their general policy needs.  The Trust’s contribution is, however, normally fixed at £15,000 p.a. Where the Trust agrees to provide £20,000 p.a. (see ‘What the Trust provides’) the additional payment should be used to offset any deficit in College’ fund raising for the post and not to increase the Fellow’s salary.

Fellowships will normally be advertised for three years’ tenure.

The advertisement should explain that the Fellow should be prepared to offer up to four hours’ teaching a week for the College, but that would not be a binding contractual agreement and teaching would be remunerated separately. The Trust appreciates that not all individual appointees might be able to offer regular teaching, and that some Fellows might wish, for research purposes, to spend a term or a year away from Cambridge. 

 The Trust hopes that all Colleges offering INT College Research Fellowships will use  one of the electronic application systems already in use across the university, and to agree, so far as possible, on the application materials to be submitted by candidates (especially the nature and length of research statements) and the form that references should take.

The title ‘Isaac Newton’ or ‘Newton’ should appear in the advertisement as part of the title of the Fellowship. The Trust’s square wordmark should also be used where possible; please see our website for information about the Trust's logo and style guide.
