Research Fellowships

For those wanting to pursue a career in academia, an important transitional step from PhD to a lectureship is the appointment of high-flying young academics to a Research Fellowship (referred to in other Colleges as a Junior Research Fellowship or 'JRF'). Trinity Hall is fortunate to have received funding for five named research fellowships, and there are usually six research fellowships in College at any one time. Appointments to Research Fellowships are keenly contested, attracting many exceptional candidates from across the globe who take part in an open competition for just two posts awarded each year (from up to 600 applicants). A Research Fellowship is typically for a three-year term, allowing the individual essential freedom for innovative research in their area of expertise with minimal pressure from teaching. Research Fellows play an integral role in College life and on leaving Trinity Hall have usually secured an excellent posting within the academic world.

This is a joint college scheme, shared with Churchill, Fitzwilliam, Murray Edwards, Robinson, Selwyn and St Edmund's colleges.

The competition this year (for entry in October 2018) is now closed. Information regarding next year's competition will be available Autumn 2018.

(College Fellows in various subjects are appointed based on Faculty/University positions and as such are not advertised here.)
