Fellowship in Italian Studies at Cambridge Univ


Pembroke College, Cambridge
Keith Sykes Research Fellowship in Italian Studies
Pembroke College, Cambridge

Following the appointment of the second Keith Sykes Research Fellow, Dr Kenneth Clarke, to an Anniversary Research Lectureship in Medieval Literature at the University of York, the College hopes to elect not later than 15 March 2013 to a KEITH SYKES RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP IN ITALIAN STUDIES, with tenure from 1 October 2013. Candidates should have recently completed or be about to complete a doctoral degree.

The College welcomes applications from scholars with research interests in any aspect of Italian culture and history from the age of Dante to the present: relevant disciplines may include Italian language and literature, music, history and art history. The tenure of the Fellowship will be for five years. The holder will be encouraged to do a limited amount of teaching for the College, and to offer an annual course of lectures in a relevant University Department or Faculty, but would require the permission of the Governing Body to undertake other paid work, and will be expected to support an annual "Italian evening" and the annual Keith Sykes Lecture.

The stipend payable from 1 October 2013 will range from £21,383 to £24,049 and is reviewed annually. Further financial particulars are available on request.

Applications, which are due by 7 January 2013, should be made online by clicking the Apply link below, where relevant links are available. Informal enquiries can be made to the Senior Tutor's Assistant, Sally Clowes, at
