The College proposes to elect a fixed-term (non-renewable) Career Development Fellow (CDF) in Early Modern Literature in English for five years with effect from 1 October 2020. Candidates who could not start before 1 January 2021 are also invited to apply since the start date is negotiable. 

We are committed to fostering equality, diversity and inclusiveness. We particularly encourage applications from women, disabled people and people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, as these groups are currently under-represented in the College's academic staff. 

The Queen’s College, founded in 1341, is one of the oldest Colleges in the University of Oxford and represents most aspects of the University community and its scientific and scholarly work. There are approximately 45 Fellows, about 160 graduate students and about 330 undergraduates. 

The CDF will be required (i) to pursue a programme of advanced research in early modern literature in English; (ii) to teach six contact hours per week for the College or, should the hours required by Queen’s be less, for other colleges, either under an exchange arrangement or in return for tuition fees to be remitted to the College; (iii) to mark College examinations, play a full part in the admissions process, and to assist in the pastoral care of undergraduates reading the subject; (iv) to contribute to College Open Days and outreach activities; and (v) to contribute to the development of the subject within the College, and to undertake such other duties as the Governing Body may direct. 

Salary and Allowances 

The basic stipend will be on a scale starting at £33,000 per annum (plus annual increase under review). A personal research allowance of £1,565 per annum is provided by the College for research activities such as conference attendance, research assistance, and the purchase of books and software. 

Place of Work 

The College will provide a non-residential study room on the main site in central Oxford. 

Closing Date 

Midday, Monday 31st August 2020 

Interviews will be held in the week beginning Monday 14th September 2020.
