John Henry Coates Non-Stipendiary Research Fellowship

The Governing Body of Emmanuel College invites applications for a non-stipendiary Research Fellowship in Science or Mathematics.  The Fellowship will commence on October 1, 2018 and will be for a fixed term of between two and three years to be determined based on eligibility.


Eligibility is restricted to candidates holding a full time fellowship or other post-doctoral paid position at the University of Cambridge, awarded by a Research Council or other similar body, which will be fully funded until at least 30 September 2020.

The Fellowship is intended for an outstanding researcher early in their career: the successful candidate is likely to have been awarded their PhD degree after 1 October 2013.

Fellowship details

Benefits for Non-Stipendiary Research Fellows include grants for research expenses and academic travel, a book allowance, and assistance with computing facilities.   Research Fellows will be given the option to live in College (Fellows’ sets are on the main College site and are generally limited in terms of size and facilities), and are entitled to lunch and dinner in Hall free of charge.

There is no teaching requirement attached to the Fellowship, but Fellows are  welcome to  teach if  they wish, and are permitted to receive additional  remuneration for up to  six hours College or University teaching a  week. 

Research Fellows are normally required to reside in Cambridge during Full Term. However, subject always to the permission of the Governing Body, Research Fellows may work away from Cambridge for up to three Terms during the last two years of their Fellowship.


Candidates should submit a CV, a statement of outlining their research plans (maximum 1,000 words) and a document that confirms eligibility as defined above (e.g. contract of employment). They should also arrange for three referees familiar with their research to submit letters of reference. The application and references should be sent by email with subject heading “John Henry Coates Non-Stipendiary Research Fellowship” to Professor Christopher Hunter at by no later than 5 pm on 25th May. Please note it is the candidate’s responsibility to ensure that references are submitted by the deadline.

Candidates who are short-listed by the College will be invited for interview in early June, and it is hoped to make an election soon afterwards.
