King’s College will make up to six appointments to College Research Associates in any subject, to start in October 2018. Applications can be from individuals or from groups of up to three.
Appointments will be for two years, potentially renewable for a further two years. Applicants must, at the time of appointment, have funding for at least a full year.
Appointments are made by some members from the Research Committee on the basis of a research application outlining activities to be performed within King’s. This could, for instance, involve work with King’s Fellows or doctoral students, use of college archives or research facilities, or the writing of an article.
Research Associates have access to the SCR, the library and other College facilities. They have the right to lunch and dine in College with one High Table dinner and two lunches per week free of charge. Up to £500 per year of research expenses is available through the Research Committee. Presentation of their work to the Fellowship and Graduate student body will be expected of all Associates at some point during their tenure.

The closing date for the competition is Wednesday 13 June 2018.
