University of Cambridge Fellowship


Aim and Benefits of University of Cambridge Fellowship

Travel, visa, college accommodation, and maintenance costs will be paid by the Centre on behalf of the fellow. The Centre is not able to provide additional sums for the travel and living expenses of anyone accompanying the Fellow to Cambridge. The sum is not subject to tax in the UK.

The aim of the Fellowships is to enable the fellows to focus on a period of research and writing in Cambridge.


Requirements for University of Cambridge Fellowship Qualification

Applications are invited from candidates in all the disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. Applicants are expected to have completed a doctoral degree before the Fellowship start date. Preference will be given to candidates with a distinguished research profile commensurate with their academic rank. Early- to mid-career researchers are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants should have a current affiliation with an African university or research institution. It is expected that applicants would come to Cambridge to work on a project that builds on existing research for which a period of residence in Cambridge is demonstrably appropriate. They should present a clear and feasible plan for preparing one or more pieces of work for publication. The initiation of a new research project will not be ruled out where there is a realistic expectation that it could be substantially advanced by the end of the tenure of the Fellowship.



Interview date, Process and Venue for University of Cambridge Fellowship

Applications are invited for Visiting Research Fellowships to commence no  later than Tuesday 21 January 2025. The maximum duration of a Fellowship is six months and is non-renewable. Fellows will have access, by agreement, to the holdings of Faculty and Departmental libraries, to the library of the Centre of African Studies and to the University Library.
