Research Associateships

The Competition has now closed and will re-open in August 2018 for Research Associateships starting in January 2019. For information last year's details are below:


Peterhouse runs an open competition each year to appoint up to 4 Research Associate posts.  The appointees must hold a a postdoctoral contract in a University or University related Department and have no existing affiliation to another Cambridge College.

The appointment is for 2 years with a possible extension of 1 year (but always coterminous with their substantive appointment).

No stipend is paid to an RA and no residential accommodation is provided. However any teaching for College would be remunerated at the appropriate supervising rate.

RAs become Members of the College, have Category IV dining privileges, have use of the Parlours when dining, and have use of other College facilities (e.g. library, sports facilities, etc).

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.

Applications for 2017/18 are now invited.  Applicants should complete the form below and provide a short personal statement explaining why they wish to become a Research Associate and how they might contribute to College life (including possible teaching). The form should be accompanied by a full CV.  

Forms and cvs should be sent to the Master via by Wednesday 25 October 2017.
