Cambridge Colleges are often thought of as places of teaching, and indeed they are, but their Fellows are all engaged in high-level research across a wide range of academic areas. It is their work that makes Cambridge the leading research university in the UK, and one of the very best research institutions in the world. Caius has a large and active Fellowship and makes a correspondingly large contribution to the research output of the University. In addition, our postgraduate students play a major role in the University's research activities.
In addition to Fellowships for senior academics, Caius provides 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.
