POSTDOCTORAL PRIZE RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS (PPRFs) IN SOCIAL SCIENCES

Nuffield College intends to appoint, with effect from 1 October 2004, a number of Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellows (PPRFs).

Applications are invited from graduates of any country wishing to undertake research in any area of the social sciences, except Economics, for which there is a separate competition. Those wishing to undertake interdisciplinary research, which includes Economics, may apply for either or both competitions. The main interests of the College are in Economics, Politics, and Sociology, but these are broadly construed to include, for example, social science approaches to history, social and medical statistics, international relations, social psychology, and social policy.

PPRFs' main responsibility is to engage in independent scholarly research. They have no teaching or administrative obligations but are expected to participate in the intellectual life of the College. By 1 October 2004, candidates should normally 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, teaching, or research in the social sciences, and should not have previously held a research fellowship similar to that advertised.

The postdoctoral salary starts at £16,950 a year (predoctoral grant of £9,311) (under review) with a research budget of £2,107. Free single College accommodation or £4,146 housing allowance is available. Child support funds are also available. The Fellowships are to be taken up on 1 October 2004. The appointment will be for up to three years.

Further particulars and the application form can be obtained from the College web page: http://www.nuff.ox.ac.uk or from the College Secretary, Nuffield College, Oxford, OX1 1NF (e-mail economics.secretary@nuf.ox.ac.uk). Applications must be received by Friday, 7 November 2003.

The College is an equal opportunities employer.
