Master and Fellows
The College has over over a hundred senior academic members, known as Fellows. This diverse group of professional researchers and teachers pool their skills and resources to run the College and make it a truly stimulating academic community.
The Fellowship is the community of scholars which governs the College, conducts research and takes responsibility for the academic and personal development of the students. The wide-ranging specialisms of our Fellows — from African history to neurophysiology, and from quantum field theory to Japanese economics — make this a truly cross–disciplinary community. The Master and Fellows work with each other through various formal structures in the strategic and day-to-day management of the College. Equally important is the exchange of ideas between Fellows and students within and across disciplines which characterises life in Caius. This makes the College a hugely fertile environment for learning, research and discovery.
Fellows of the College can be lecturers and professors employed primarily by a University faculty, or College–based lecturers employed solely by Caius. Both are involved in full-time teaching and research within the College and beyond. In addition to Fellowships for senior academics, we provide Research Fellowships for early-career scholars with exceptional research promise. Four are appointed annually and — with several hundred applications each year — these positions are highly prized; their holders add a sparkling intellectual dimension to College life. The College may incorporate as Bye-Fellows senior members of the University who make a very significant contribution to College affairs. The College also occasionally appoints men and women of great professional or academic distinction to Honorary Fellowships.
