Nuffield College

POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS

Nuffield College intends to appoint, with effect from 1 October 2001, a number of postdoctoral Research Fellows, and applications are invited from graduates of any country wishing to undertake research in the social sciences. The main interests of the College are in Economics, Politics, and Sociology, broadly construed. The responsibility of a Research Fellow is to engage in postdoctoral research within those areas.

Candidates should normally, by 1 October 2001, have completed, or be close to completing, a doctoral thesis. To be eligible, candidates should not, by that date, have spent more than a total of eight years in postgraduate study in the social sciences and/or in employment in a teaching or research post in the social sciences, nor should they have previously held a research fellowship similar to that advertised.

The salary scale for Fellows with a doctorate is from £15,090 (under review). Fellows who have not yet completed their doctorate receive a grant of £8,289 (under review). Fellows receive free single accommodation in College or a Housing Allowance of £3,820 a year. Funds are available for research support.

Further particulars can be obtained from the College's website (http://www.nuff.ox.ac.uk/), or from Alison Bateman, Secretary to the PRF Competition, Nuffield College, Oxford, OX1 1NF (e-mail alison.bateman@nuf.ox.ac.uk). Applications must be received by Friday, 24 November 2000.

The College is an equal opportunities employer.
