Postdoctoral Affiliates

The College welcomes applications from women in any subject seeking to be affiliated to Newnham College as Postdoctoral Affiliates, strengthening Newnham’s already significant academic community. Postdoctoral Affiliates are members of the College’s Senior Combination Room, through which they have access to a lively interdisciplinary Fellowship and will receive invitations to attend and give College events, lectures and seminars.

These are non-stipendiary positions, though undergraduate teaching and admissions interviewing, and postgraduate student mentoring opportunities may be available in some subjects, for which payment would be made at normal intercollegiate rates. These affiliations will be for one academic year, starting on 1 October 2024, and may be renewed annually at the discretion of the College Council (but not normally renewed beyond three years).

Applicants must hold an established and salaried postdoctoral research position or personal fellowship or Senior Teaching Associate or Teaching Associate post in the University of Cambridge or one of its associated research institutes, with at least one full year of their contract to run from October 2024. Applicants must be physically based in Cambridge for the duration of their affiliation and must have completed a PhD.

The College is looking to select up to 9 Postdoctoral Affiliates, to add to a cohort which will total 25 Affiliates and aspires to achieve a balance between the arts and the sciences. The College is particularly keen to encourage applicants in arts and humanities as they are under-represented among our Postdoctoral Affiliates.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 8 May 2024 at 23:59 UK time.
