Woolf Institute Non-Stipendiary Fellowships

9 August 2016

The Woolf Institute is seeking enthusiastic and engaged scholars to appoint as Non-Stipendiary Fellows to join its vibrant, dynamic, multi- and inter-disciplinary academic community in the heart of Cambridge. There are three different categories of candidates who can be appointed to these positions:

1) those currently without a position who are applying to other organisations for sponsorship for research projects which will be affiliated to the Woolf Institute;

2) those currently in a position – either as a final year doctoral students, or in the final year of their current project/role – who are applying to other organisations for sponsorship for research projects which will be affiliated to the Woolf Institute [those currently affiliated elsewhere must ensure that this appointment does not conflict with the terms of their current position];

3) those who have sponsorship for research projects which, in the event of appointment to a fellowship, will be affiliated to the Woolf Institute;

All applicants for the Non-Stipendiary Fellowships must be engaged in academic work of relevance to the interests or particular projects of the Institute, that is, the relationship between different cultures and religions, particularly Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

Woolf Institute non-Stipendiary Fellows will:

  • Be provided with support to write grant applications, including identification of suitable grant giving bodies, if available;
  • Have access to Cambridge University Library and affiliated libraries in Cambridge;
  • Be invited to all meetings of the Woolf Institute Research Group and all seminars and Institute-arranged lectures;
  • Have access to accommodation at the Woolf Institute (subject to availability);
  • Be recommended for a Cambridge College affiliation in case of successful sponsorship application (subject to standard application procedures);
  • Woolf Institute non-Stipendiary Fellows must adhere to the guidelines in the ‘Woolf Institute non-Stipendiary Fellows Policy’ including:
  • Becoming involved in the academic and scholarly life of the Institute, which may include – but will not necessarily include or be limited to – writing blog posts for the Woolf Institute blog, attending, assisting with, or presenting at Woolf Institute events, conferences and seminars, contributing to teaching and supervision of Woolf Institute students (both in Cambridge and online);
  • Acknowledging the Woolf Institute in publications, websites, social media and other outputs from the affiliated project.
