  • HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES -  Candidates for Humanities Fellowships should hold a doctorate or be near completion, by commencement of the Fellowship.  These Fellowships are intended for those with limited research experience, who will be engaged in research work within an Oxford University Department or Faculty, and will be expected to spend the greater part of the academic year in Oxford.  They are not suitable for those at an early stage of their doctoral studies. No more than three years should have elapsed since receipt of a doctorate (exceptions apply).

NON-STIPENDIARY RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS

  • Humanities & Social Sciences (see below for advertising dates)

  • Clinical and Non-Clincial Sciences (see below for advertising dates)

The College holds two annual open competitions, and normally elects up to 3 Non-Stipendiary Research Fellowships in each of the above categories.  There is no limitation of subject within these categories; candidates must be engaged in research work within an Oxford University Department or Faculty. Research Fellowships are intended for those whose careers are progressing to a point where they are becoming established scholars in their field. No more than ten years should have elapsed since receipt of a doctorate (exceptions apply).

Applications are encouraged from candidates holding research council or charity fellowships (including Royal Society University Research Fellowships, EPSRC, Career Fellowships Wellcome Trust/CRUK Career Development Fellowships etc.).  Research Fellowships are not suitable for those taking sabbatical leave from an academic post. Applications from candidates with fewer that 3 years of postdoctoral experience are discouraged since it is very unlikely that they will have acquired sufficient experience and seniority, and it may be more appropriate for these candidates to apply for a Junior Research Fellowship.  Fellowships are for 3 years, renewable for a final 4 years (conditions apply), and come with Common Table (free meals in Hall up to an agreed level) and other benefits.
