The Governing Body of King's College invites applications for a Junior Research Fellowship in the interdisciplinary field of Science Communication. Applications are invited from candidates with a background in any field but with a strong record in, and commitment to, the communication of science to a broader audience, and the ability to cross disciplinary divides to achieve this. The audience may be the general public, but could also be more specific groups such as policy makers, business leaders, schools, children, etc. Candidates may be scientists themselves wishing to reach a broader audience for their own and related research; or from disciplines such as history and philosophy of science, anthropology or scientific journalism involved in the understanding and dissemination of scientific ideas and their implications. Possible topics could include, but are certainly not limited to: (i) Climate change; (ii) Energy; (iii) Understanding of risk; (iv) Data and its use; (v) Genetic modification; (vi) Human animal interactions; (vii) Pharmaceuticals; (viii) Time and space.To Apply:
To apply go to the FAS website and create an application:
Before the closing date, applicants must complete all sections of the online Fellowship Application and upload onto the website (PDF only) the following:
Applicants must also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be uploaded onto the site in PDF format. Each referee will be asked to provide the names of two further readers, not in the candidate’s institution, to whom work might be sent if the candidate is long-listed. It is the duty of the candidate to ensure that the referees submit the references and the names of two readers before the closing date.
Your referees will need to provide their references through the FAS website. They will be sent an email containing a link to do this. Referees unable to submit references electronically via the FAS website may e-mail jrf.kingscasc.cam.ac.uk to send them directly to the competition administrator.
Please note that all application materials must be in the English language.
The application will not be considered in the competition until it has been submitted and all references and the names of additional readers have been received. An email will be sent once this has occurred.
After the closing date, the College will contact selected applicants by email to ask for samples of written work, up to 20,000 words (either published papers or chapters of a doctoral thesis).
