All Souls College invites applications for up to four Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships, one in each of the following subjects:  Literature in English; Mathematics; Modern Languages; and Social and Political Sciences (limited to Politics and International Relations, Social Anthropology, and Sociology).  Those elected will be expected to take up their Fellowships on 1 October 2019 or such other date as may be agreed in advance with the College.  The Fellowship are for five years, fixed-term, and non-renewable.

The Fellowships are intended to offer opportunities for outstanding early career researchers to establish a record of independent research.  But, while the primary duty of a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow is the completion of a significant body of independent research for publication, they are also encouraged to undertake appropriate teaching and supervision of research in the University, develop their curriculum vitae, and improve their prospects of obtaining a permanent academic position by the end of the Fellowship. 

Applicants must have been awarded their doctorates after 1 August 2016 or expect to have been awarded their doctorate by 1 October 2019.  (The successful candidates must have completed their doctorates by the time they take up their Fellowships.)  Candidates must be able to demonstrate, both through their thesis and other work published or submitted for publication, their capacity to undertake original publishable academic research in their chosen field. Where they have been working as part of a team, the College will wish to understand the significance of the candidate’s particular contribution to jointly authored papers.

For further particulars and to complete the on-line application, see the Appointments section of the College’s website:
