Exeter College, University of Oxford, proposes to appoint distinguished scholars to (non-stipendiary) Visiting Fellowships. The Fellowships are intended for scholars who are on sabbatical or research leave from an academic institution outside Oxford (i.e. who are already provided with financial support as a result of being employed by that institution), but who will be spending between one and three terms of the academic year 2017/2018 in Oxford undertaking research.
There is no stipend attached to these appointments as the Fellowships offer an association to the College, not employment.
- The Visiting Fellowships do not have any specific duties, as they do not constitute an employment.
- However, the Visiting Fellows will be expected during the period of the Fellowship to engage in research in Oxford in a subject area relevant to the College and which, in the opinion of the Governing Body, is likely to produce valuable results.
- In addition, there is an expectation that the Visiting Fellows will play an active role within the College community. In particular, it is hoped that they may be willing to participate in sharing some of their research with other College members - for example during one of the Senior Common Room event nights, or by volunteering to give a seminar(s) to students of the College.
