Munby Fellowship in Bibliography 2015-2016
Duration: 1 October 2015 – 31 July 2016
Deadline: 31 October 2014
The Library Syndicate invite applications for the Munby Fellowship in Bibliography for the tenure of 1 October 2015 to 31 July 2016.
The Munby Fellow will be free to pursue bibliographical research of his/her own choosing. It is, however, expected that the Fellow’s research will be, at least in part, based directly or indirectly on the collections of the University and Colleges of Cambridge and likely to be of benefit, in the broadest sense, to scholars using those collections in the future. The Fellow will have no departmental or other staff duties and responsibilities.
The Fellowship is open to graduates in any discipline of any university and nationality. Preference will be given to scholars at post-doctoral or an equivalent level. The University of Cambridge is committed to equality of opportunity. The stipend will be £32,590 (pro-rata).
A non-stipendiary Fellowship at Darwin College will normally be available to the successful candidate, if not already a Fellow of a Cambridge College. Fellows in these categories are members of the Governing Body of the College and may take meals in the College without charge.
Applications (one copy only) should reach the Deputy Librarian’s PA, University Library, West Road, Cambridge, CB3 9DR, UK by 31 October 2014, and should include the following particulars:
a) a completed application cover sheet;
b) a curriculum vitae with a list of principal publications;
c) a statement of the research proposed.
An election will be made in early January 2015. There are no interviews.
