St John’s College Cambridge Research Fellowships 2018 for International Applicants in UK
St John’s College Cambridge is inviting applications from graduates to carry out independent research in a stimulating and supportive academic environment.
The aim of the fellowship is to provide financial help to international students.
The Fellowships offer an opportunity to carry out independent research in a stimulating and supportive academic environment.
The work of St John’s College is built on its four aims. All our activities have their foundations in at least one of these guiding principles: Education, Religion, Learning, and Research.
Course Level: Fellowships are available to pursue research for outstanding researchers early in their careers.
Study Subject: Fellowships are awarded to learn any of the subjects offered by the university.
Scholarship Award: The annual salary of Fellows who are not full-time students working for a degree or other qualification is at present on the scale £26,829 to £29,301 and Fellows are permitted to receive additional remuneration for up to six hours’ College or University teaching a week. Fellows who are full-time students will receive a reduced salary until completion of their courses. The salary for a Fellow who has other remunerations (other than that for up to six hours of College or University teaching) will be reduced by the total amount of this remuneration.
Fellows may apply for grants to assist with the cost of their research, including obtaining academic material, travel expenses and the cost of extended periods of research if based outside Cambridge. Conference grants and book allowances are also available.
Office accommodation is provided for Fellows who do not live in College. Fellows wishing to reside with a partner/ family will be eligible for a housing allowance. Fellows wishing to live in College are provided with residential accommodation with charges for services and supplies. Fellows are entitled to a maximum of 90 free lunches/dinners in each quarter of a year.
Number of Scholarships: Up to six fellowships are available.
