Research Associate Applications 2018


Research Associateships are intended for those who are in full-time employment at the University of Cambridge as a Post-Doctoral Researcher and who have no previous association with Peterhouse or another Cambridge College. Petreans in a similar situation are also asked to send their CV to the Master with a covering letter if they wish to be considered for Research Associate status.

New Petrean Tie Now Available

Peterhouse, Cambridge has partnered with Windridge & Young to create and supply an official Peterhouse tie.

Windridge & Young are delighted to be involved with this project.  They re-mastered the college tie’s original weave, and for the first time ever have brought together the vibrancy of Peterhouse’s age-old royal blue and white in the finest dyed silks, to create a tie that is worthy of Cambridge’s oldest college.
