All Souls College, University of Oxford, invites applications from suitably qualified candidates for up to six Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships. Successful candidates will be expected to undertake a programme of independent post-doctoral research as agreed with the College and, if they so wish, a limited amount of University lecturing and teaching. The Fellowships are open to candidates in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences and Mathematics.
The Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships are for five years, fixed-term, and non-renewable. They are intended to offer opportunities for outstanding early career researchers to establish a record of independent research and teaching, develop their curriculum vitae and improve their prospects of obtaining permanent academic posts by the end of the Fellowship. The primary duty of a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow is the completion of a significant body of independent research for publication. Fellows are also encouraged to undertake appropriate teaching and supervision of research in the University.
The College will accept on-line applications from those who are, or have been, registered for a doctorate at any recognised university. It is expected that applicants will have completed their doctorate or be close to completion. Successful candidates must complete their doctorates by the time they take up their Fellowships. Candidates must be able to demonstrate both through their thesis and other work published or submitted for publication, their capacity to undertake original publishable academic research in their chosen field.
