William R Miller Junior Research Fellowship in Molecular Aspects of Biology

University of Oxford - St Edmund Hall

St Edmund Hall occupies a historic site in the middle of Oxford, just off the High Street. The college community has around 75 fellows (most of whom form the Governing Body), and around 420 undergraduate and 300 postgraduate students and up to 40 Visiting Students, in addition to administrative and domestic staff. The Queen’s Lane main site accommodates many of our facilities, including the administration, fellows’ rooms, the Senior, Middle and Junior Common Rooms, Dining Halls and student accommodation. Our library is on this site, occupying the beautiful former church of St Peter-in-the-East. We have further extensive student accommodation properties in north and east Oxford: in Norham Gardens, and on the Iffley Road and Dawson Street.

The fellowship comes with Common Table (meal) allowance and the appointee is therefore expected to dine in the Hall regularly at lunches and dinners. The holder of this fellowship is entitled to an Academic Allowance (presently set at £3,000 p.a.).

Candidates should be in possession of a fellowship, or similar personal academic support, obtained in open competition from a major UK or international academic organisation such as a research council, a charity or trust, the Royal Society, or the University of Oxford. Being a named researcher on a research grant held by a senior member of the University does not qualify as personal academic support.

Further particulars about the role can be found here.


Applications should be sent by email to recruitment@seh.ox.ac.uk not later than 12.00 noon (GMT) on Friday 1 September 2017. Applications should include: 

  1. A full CV, detailing career, education and qualifications, teaching experience and research in progress or planned, publications, prizes or awards.

  3. A statement of no more than 300 words, explaining how holding such a fellowship will benefit both the applicant and St Edmund Hall.
