Research Fellowship in the Sciences

University of Oxford - Balliol College

Fixed term for three years.

The college proposes to elect a non-stipendiary Research Fellow in a Science subject, from 1 October 2018. Eligible subjects are: Biological Sciences, Computer Science, Engineering Science, Mathematics, Plant Sciences, Statistics, Zoology.*

The fellowship is a three-year fixed-term position, and the successful applicant should normally – at the time of taking up the post – be in possession of a doctorate. Applicants should also be able to demonstrate that they will have funding in place, as well as a position in the University of Oxford or other local research institution, for the duration of the fellowship. Candidates should not normally have completed a PhD or equivalent earlier than 1 October 2010 (with the exception of career breaks, e.g. for parental leave), and the college especially encourages applications from those who have not yet had a comparable college-linked position. 

*The college has already filled comparable positions in Physics and Medicine. It expects to advertise a four-year Career Development Fellowship in Chemistry shortly.

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

Balliol College is an Equal Opportunities Employer.

The deadline for applications is 12.00 noon (GMT) on Friday 12 January 2018.
