Balliol College


The College proposes to elect two non-stipendiary Junior Research Fellows, one in a Humanities or Social Science subject and one in a Science subject, from 1 October 2008. It is expected that the Fellowships will be for three years, although the College may be willing to consider an extension of this period in certain circumstances. Applicants must have guaranteed funding for a minimum of three years and should normally be in possession of a doctorate. Prospective applicants for schemes such as the British Academy Post-Doctoral Fellowships Scheme, the ESRC Research Fellowships Scheme, and the Royal Society Fellowship Scheme who wish to hold their Fellowship in Oxford, or those holding similar departmentally funded positions who would welcome a College attachment during the period of their award, are particularly encouraged to apply. The Fellow elected will be a Junior Research Fellow as defined in the College Statutes. The main duty of the Fellow will be to undertake research, but participation in the educational activities of the College through a small amount of paid tutorial teaching would be welcomed. College accommodation is offered (or, if preferred, a housing allowance of £4,788 a year), as well as free meals and an academic support allowance.

Further particulars may be obtained from the Master's PA, Balliol College, Oxford, OX1 3BJ (e-mail Applications, in the form of a letter, curriculum vitae, and research proposal (up to four pages) should be sent to the same address to arrive not later than noon on 11 January 2008. Applicants should specify source of funding and, in the case of Sciences, arrangements for laboratory space, and should arrange for two references to be sent direct to the same address and by the same date. It is expected that interviews will be held in late February.
