Associate Professorship in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation

University of Oxford - Department of Social Policy and Intervention

Barnett House, 32 Wellington Square, Oxford in association with Green Templeton College, Oxford

The Department of Social Policy and Intervention at Oxford proposes to appoint an Associate Professor in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation. This full-time, permanent post (subject to completion of a successful review) is available from 1 January 2018, but a later date may be negotiated. In exceptional cases, where the candidate has previously established an academic standing at an appropriate level of distinction, the title of full professor may be awarded upon appointment. Those awarded the title of full professor may receive from the University an additional salary payment of £2,655 p.a. The post is associated with a Non-tutorial Fellowship at Green Templeton College.

This is an exciting opportunity for an outstanding scholar to join the Department of Social Policy and Intervention, a multi-disciplinary social science centre of excellence, ranked first in the UK Research Excellence Framework 2014 and second in the world QS ranking 2017.

The successful candidate will contribute to teaching on the Masters courses in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation, and to supervising doctoral students, while pursuing an independent research agenda. The scholar will be part of an intellectually stimulating multi-disciplinary research community.

The successful candidate will have a completed doctorate in social or behavioural sciences or public health, or related discipline, and a track record of internationally excellent research. We especially welcome applicants with expertise in the evaluation of policies and complex social interventions, including those with expertise in non-randomised research methods (e.g. natural experimental or quasi-experimental designs). We are also open to a range of other approaches relevant to our research and teaching, but expect a body of established work on social intervention or policy evaluation.

For details of the post and application instructions please see further particulars.

Applications, including a cover letter, full CV and details of three referees should be made online no later than 12.00 noon on 20 September 2017. Interviews to be held on 20 October 2017.

Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
