Newnham seeks to appoint new Senior Tutor

Newnham College will be seeking to appoint a new Senior Tutor from September 2022, when Prof Liba Taub retires. 

Newnham College, one of the 31 Colleges within the University of Cambridge, celebrates its 150th Anniversary this year. Newnham is a dynamic community of academics, students and staff, offering outstanding opportunities for teaching, learning and research. From its earliest days, Newnham has been at the forefront of championing academic excellence for women at Cambridge and beyond.

The Senior Tutor is the academic champion for undergraduates, postgraduates and the Fellowship, responsible for maintaining and developing within the College an environment which supports academic progress and personal growth. The Senior Tutor helps the Fellowship build a vibrant, diverse, inclusive and intergenerational community of students, academics, and staff. This is both a strategic and a hands-on role. Newnham is a women’s college: this appointment is open to men and women.

Newnham’s academics are engaged in cutting edge research across a wide range of fields. Our academics are leaders in their field, serve on editorial boards of leading journals, are Fellows of the Royal Society and the British Academy. Our students have won accolades such as the Forbes ’30 under 30′, European awards for Science, and Women of the Future awards. Newnham is strongly committed to furthering the careers of its students and academics through the provision of funding and through informal and formal networks of advice and collaboration.

We seek to be an outward-facing, diverse, inclusive, welcoming, and inspiring community with a reputation for the academic, pastoral and financial support it provides to its students. Newnham is proud of its commitment to widening access to higher education and is one of eleven Colleges offering the new Foundation year from October 2022.
