Applications should include a current CV, a research proposal, not normally exceeding 1000 words, and the names of two referees, whom the candidate should ask to write directly to the Master, St Edmund's College, Cambridge CB3 0BN. The closing date for receipt of applications and references is 30th November 2012. Short listed candidates may be invited to submit written work for assessment.
