Non-Stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships

St Edmund Hall - Oxford

Location: Oxford

Applications will be considered from those working in the MPLS, Medical Sciences and Social Sciences Divisions of the University. There is no limitation on subject within these categories: candidates must be engaged in research work within, or have an association with, an Oxford University Department or Faculty.

The College will not normally elect someone who has previously held a similar appointment.

Candidates should be in possession of a fellowship, or similar personal academic support, obtained in open competition from a major UK or international academic organisation such as a Research Council, a Charity or Trust, the British Academy, the Royal Society, or the University of Oxford. Being a named researcher on a research grant held by a senior member of the University does not qualify as personal academic support.

Holders of these Fellowships are entitled to an Academic Allowance (presently set at £3000 per annum).

Junior Research Fellows are members of the Senior Common Room and will be entitled to full dining rights when the College kitchen is open, but are not Governing Body members.

Those elected will be asked to develop an option in their field that can be taught to Visiting Students as a major (8 tutorials) or a minor (4 tutorials) option. No more than 12 tutorials will be required each year. Other opportunities to undertake teaching or other duties within the college may be possible, with the agreement of the Governing Body.

Fellows will be expected to play a full part in the intellectual and social life of the College, for example by attending College functions such as lectures and seminars with undergraduates or postgraduates.

They will also each act as an advisor to around five St Edmund Hall graduate students.

Applicants are asked to consider completing the online Equal Opportunity Monitoring Form. Submission of this form is voluntary and does not form part of the selection process, but it would be appreciated if you complete it at the same time as your application to assist us with our equal opportunity monitoring.

Attention - In the recruitment process, legitimate companies never withdraw fees from candidates. If there are companies that attract interview fees, tests, ticket reservations, etc. it is better to avoid it because there are indications of fraud.
