College Research Associates

The College Research Associates are post-doctoral Research Fellows of the University who augment the Fellowship in their specialist research fields. Each College Research Associate is appointed for several years, and they provide a particularly relevant point of contact for the graduate members of the College who may be considering remaining in academia, able to offer insight into the career and role of a junior academic.

Research Fellows

Up to six Research Fellows are elected annually. The Fellowships are extremely competitive and typically less than one candidate in 100 is successful. Research Fellows are supported by the College while they pursue their research interests.
