The post will be for a fixed term of three years. The full-time office of College Teaching Officer is intended to provide an opportunity for a fixed term to a person at the beginning of their academic career to develop their teaching skills and research activity with a view to obtaining a University office or a permanent position in a University elsewhere. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to work for the second oldest of the 31 Colleges in the University of Cambridge. Regarded as one of the most progressive and informal, Clare is renowned as a College that achieves academically at the highest levels, whilst also being welcoming, forward-thinking, and inclusive. 

Located in the heart of Cambridge city centre, the College is extraordinarily beautiful and famed for its gardens on “the Backs” (the famous backs of the Colleges that overlook the River Cam). Our gardens are widely renowned as some of the best in Cambridge and are valued by all members of the College, as well as our guests. Clare’s Old Court, a Grade I listed building, is the centre of the College and is unique among the ancient Cambridge Colleges in having maintained its architectural integrity over the course of its history.
