Faculty of Oriental Studies, Clarendon Institute, Walton Street, Oxford

Grade 6: £28,098 - £33,518 p.a.

The Kennicott Fellowship is a fixed-term fellowship in Classical Hebrew or closely related disciplines, for an ambitious academic at an early stage of his or her career. This is a fixed-term junior research position that may also involve some teaching for our Hebrew and Jewish Studies courses. This is a 2 year appointment initially, with the potential for extension for a further year. The Fellow will be expected to take up the appointment in January 2019.

The Fellow will undertake research in Hebrew language and literature, or the cognate Semitic languages so far as they illustrate Hebrew. This will involve planning and describing a research project, managing and undertaking that research and the associated regular administrative activities, selecting and using appropriate specialist methodologies and designing research materials. She/he will gather, analyse, and present research data and undertake literature reviews as appropriate, writing up the results for publication and/or for presentation at conferences or similar events. As well as contributing to research publications, the Fellow will represent the research project at external meetings/seminars, and contribute to discussions and share research findings with colleagues in Hebrew and Jewish Studies in the University, in partner institutions, and research groups. The Kennicott Fellow may undertake a limited amount of additional university class or college tutorial teaching, for which separate payment will be made. 

With a doctorate in an appropriate field by the time of appointment, the successful applicant will be able to present a sound and original research proposal and demonstrate a knowledge of Hebrew sufficient to undertake the proposed research. She/he will have the ability to plan and manage her/his own research and administrative activities, and possess excellent communication skills, including the ability to write text that can be published, present data at conferences, and represent the research project at meetings. Ideally, the applicant will also have experience teaching Hebrew or a related subject. Preference will be given to candidates whose research proposal is situated within the linguistic-philological approach and, as this is intended to be an early career position, to candidates who are in the early stages of their academic careers.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 28 September 2018.
