  • Chemistry experiment in a laboratory

Lecturers at Cambridge are established researchers who are responsible for guiding, training and scrutinising research output, as well as sharing their knowledge through teaching.

New lectureship positions will allow the most talented researchers to progress to the next stage in their career, encouraging them to pursue their research in Cambridge.  As lecturers they in turn lead their own research groups of early-career research fellows, postdoctoral researchers and PhD students.

We want talented researchers to stay at Cambridge and pursue their brilliant ideas here; Next Generation Lectureships allow us to support them to do that.

Next steps

  • £2.15 million will endow a Next Generation Lectureship permanently
  • £1million will fund a Next Generation Lectureship for 10 years
