Junior Research Fellowships - General Information

Stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships

The College periodically offers stipendiary JRFs which provide a stipend (currently £14,489 p.a. + any percentage increase in academic salaries that may come into effect) plus Common Table (currently £35.00 per week for own meals taken in Hall). Basic single accommodation in College will be offered without charge for the duration of the Fellowship; if upgraded double or family accommodation is required, a charge will be made equal to the difference in rents. If the Fellow elects not to live in College accommodation, a housing allowance will be paid equivalent to the current rent of a single room in College. Fellows are permitted to undertake up to six hours' teaching per week. the Fellowship will not normally be tenable with another stipendiary position: if, exceptionally, the Fellowship is awarded to a person holding such a position, some adjustment in the stipend may be made. The Fellow will normally be required to reside within 12 miles of the centre of Oxford. Any election made will be subject to the granting of a Work Permit, if applicable.

Candidates should have had at least three years relevant postgraduate experience by commencement of the Fellowship, and in the case of postdoctoral applicants, no more than three years should have elapsed since receipt of a doctorate. Exceptions will only be made for candidates whose postdoctoral academic career has been interrupted by, for example, childbirth, family commitments, illness or compulsory military service (an explanatory letter must be included if an exception is to be considered). Preference will be given to candidates who have not already held a stipendiary JRF at another college. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a description in detail of the proposed research and the candidate's qualifications for undertaking it, and a specimen of the candidate's written work (up to 10,000 words). Full details of requirements will be given at the time each Fellowship is advertised. At any one time, the College normally supports three Fellowships in Humanities. Fellowships are for three years duration, commencing on 1 October of the year of election.

All candidates will be required to complete an application form. Candidates will be required to attend for interview in Oxford on a specified date, normally in early May (no alternative date will be offered).
