People overview

The core Faculty "establishment" consists of all the University Officers with a post established in the Faculty: the Teaching Officers and the Computer Officer.

In addition, there are sometimes other lecturers and teaching assistants, who are also listed in academic staff.

The academic-related staff are members of the academic team with principally administrative, library, and computing responsibilities.

There is a small body of research staff in the Faculty. 

In addition, the non-academic staff support the day-to-day operation of the Faculty.

The Faculty's heavy load of teaching, supervising, lecturing and directing studies is supported by the affiliated lecturers, and other teaching assistance.

The graduate student body is an integral part of the Faculty, collaborating closely with their supervisors as they carry out important and original research.

Academic visitors from other institutions worldwide work in the Faculty and other libraries and institutions for periods of up to a year.

The Faculty's governing body is the Faculty Board of Divinity. In practice, much of the day-to-day governance work is carried out by its various committees and working groups.

Cambridge is a complex place, and you will find that many people have more than one responsibility in more than one place, and are listed in many categories. This is quite normal!

There is considerable crossover in Cambridge with the Colleges, and this section and the Colleges section are complementary. You will again find many people listed many times in many places.
