The College welcomes applications from women in any subject seeking to be appointed as Postdoctoral Affiliates, strengthening Newnham’s already significant academic community. Postdoctoral Affiliates are members of the College’s Senior Combination Room, through which they have access to a lively interdisciplinary fellowship and will receive invitations to attend and give College events, lectures and seminars. Undergraduate teaching and postgraduate student mentoring opportunities may be available in some subjects. These appointments will be for one calendar year from 1 October 2017, and may be renewed annually at the discretion of the College Council (but not normally renewed beyond three years).
Applicants must hold an established and salaried postdoctoral research position or personal fellowship in the University of Cambridge or one of its associated research institutes, with tenure for at least two years. Applicants must be physically based in Cambridge for the duration of their affiliation and must have completed a PhD.
The College will have up to 25 Postdoctoral Affiliates at any one time, and aspires to achieve a balance between the arts and the sciences.
Closing date: Wednesday 31 May 2017
