Postdoctoral Fellowship post, Margaret Anstee Centre at Newnham College, Cambridge, UK

The Margaret Anstee Centre (at Newnham College, Cambridge, UK) is looking to appoint a four year Postdoctoral Fellow. Details can be found on the link below and I’m happy to take any further enquiries.

The terms of the legacy mean that the post is restricted to women only, and only those from ‘developing countries’ (apologies for the terminology – we apply this as widely as possible, and include all indigenous scholars) and from the UK.

The Margaret Anstee Research Fellowship

The Margaret Anstee Research Research Fellows will work in the Margaret Anstee Centre for Global Studies founded in 2018 in honour of Dame Margaret Anstee, a graduate of the College and the first woman Under-Secretary General of the United Nations.

The Margaret Anstee Centre promotes research into economic and social development and/or international relations, and complements work being carried out elsewhere in the University.

Although based primarily at Newnham, the Margaret Anstee Fellow will be encouraged to build connections with at least one Department or Centre within the University of Cambridge, such as Anthropology, Education, Modern and Medieval Languages, Geography, History, Sociology and POLIS, and/or the Centres for African Studies, Latin American Studies, South Asian Studies, Governance and Human Rights, Global Human Movement, and Development Studies.

Applications for a second Margaret Anstee Research Fellow are currently being accepted.  Click here for futher information and details of how to apply.

The closing date for applications is midnight GMT on Friday 15 February 2019.

The successful candidate will enter their Fellowship on 1 October 2019
