University College invites applications for a Junior Research Fellowship (JRF) in any period or geographical region of Medieval History c 400 to c 1500 CE, tenable for three years with a start date expected to be at the beginning of October 2019. The appointee will be based in University College, High Street, Oxford OX1 4BH.
JRFs provide research opportunities to outstanding academics at the beginning of their careers. The primary duty of the post is to carry out a coherent programme of high-quality publishable research, but most JRFs choose also to offer a limited amount of teaching for the College in the interests of career development.
Candidates must be confident that they will have obtained their doctorates by the start of their appointment. This position is not intended for those who have already held another stipendiary JRF or equivalent or for those who obtained their doctorates more than two years prior to the application date (except in special circumstances).
