For readers of the Global History Blog on the job market this year, here’s a recent call for applications for Research Fellowships at St. John’s College at the University of Cambridge:
Applications are invited for Research Fellowships in Historical & Philosophical Studies and related fields intended for outstanding researchers early in their careers. The Fellowships offer an opportunity to carry out independent research in a stimulating and supportive academic environment. Applications will be accepted from any graduate of a university within or outside the United Kingdom.
All candidates should note that these Research Fellowships are extremely competitive and typically less than one candidate in 100 is successful.
Successful candidates are expected to be either graduate students, probably in the latter stages of their research leading to a PhD Degree, or post-doctoral researchers who have been awarded their PhD Degree after 1 October 2015. Candidates who do not fulfill these criteria are unlikely to be considered.
