Research Fellowships

We offer a variety of ways through which post-doctoral researchers and others can become members of our community either as a Junior Research Fellow (JRF) or Research Fellow (RF).

Research and Junior Research Fellows are an essential part of the Wolfson College community. Wolfson welcomes more Research Fellows to its community than any other College in Oxford, and gives a College home to researchers employed by faculties and departments to do post-doctoral research. The College usually has around 100 Research Fellows at any given time, across a wide variety of subjects.

Throughout the year we hold a variety of competitions through which we appoint a number of new fellows to the College. All Fellowships will be advertised on the vacancies page, but the usual advertising dates for the various fellowships are below.  For general enquires contact presidents.office@wolfson.ox.ac.uk 

Stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships

Wolfson funds up to 3 stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships at any one time in the Humanities.  When available, they are normally advertised in the Spring to commence in October of that year.

From time to time Wolfson offers externally funded stipendiary Junior Research or Research Fellowship.

Non-stipendiary Fellowships

Non-stipendiary Research and Junior Research Fellowships in Clinical and Non-Clinical Sciences to commence in January 2020, will be advertised in September 2019.

Research Membership of Common Room

This scheme invites applications from researchers who are employed by the University of Oxford and are engaged in substantial research, for instance, those at post-doctoral or more senior levels without a college attachment. Learn more.

Adam Smith as Jurist
Tuesday 12 November - 5:30pm to 6:30pm

Adam Smith is world-famous as a founding father of economics, yet his work as a jurist is much less well known. He worked for decades on a book that would have spanned the ground between his moral philosophy and the empirical sociology and economics of Wealth of Nations, but never completed it, and on his deathbed he asked his executors to destroy his manuscripts.
