Nuffield College - Department of Politics and International Relations - University of Oxford

Location: Oxford
Salary: £32,632
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 3rd November 2021
Closes: 6th December 2021

Nuffield College and the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford intend to appoint jointly, with effect from 1 September 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter, up to three Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellows (PPRFs) in Politics, broadly construed to include political science, political behaviour, comparative politics, political economy, electoral studies, political theory, international relations, and political history.

The key responsibilities of the Research Fellows are to engage in advanced study and independent scholarly research in politics broadly construed (as above); to disseminate research findings through publication and participation in conferences and workshops; to take part in the intellectual life of the College and the Department by organising workshops, seminars or conferences; and to undertake teaching not expected to exceed 48 stint units per year (the equivalent to teaching an eight-week 2-hour seminar series per year), and to assist in examining for the Department.

To be eligible, candidates should have completed, or be close to completing, a PhD/DPhil in a relevant field. Candidates must be within three years of the defence date (viva voce examination date) of their doctorate at the time of application. Allowances will be made for career breaks (for example, family-related leave) and candidates are asked to provide relevant information. Preference will be given to candidates who have not previously held a research fellowship similar to that advertised for more than one year at the time of taking up the fellowship. Prospective candidates should also have experience of carrying out independent research and a track record of excellent quality papers appropriate for and commensurate with their career level. They should have the ability to provide excellent teaching to high-achieving students; the willingness to contribute to the intellectual life of the College and the Department; and excellent oral and written communication skills. Teaching experience in any area of Comparative Government, Political Theory, or International Relations would be desirable.

The posts are full-time and fixed-term for three years, starting on 1 September 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter. Shorter-term appointments are unlikely to be considered. The posts will be based at Nuffield College and at the Department of Politics and International Relations. The salary offered is £32,632 per annum. Subject to availability, Research Fellows may opt to rent single accommodation in College. Further benefits include a research allowance and free lunch and dinner in College.

Further particulars, including information on how to apply, are available from the College website at https://www.nuffield.ox.ac.uk/media/4966/polpprf_jd2022.pdf

The deadline for applications is Monday 6 December 2021.

Applications are particularly welcome from women, from disabled people, and from black and minority ethnic candidates, who are currently under-represented in posts in the College.
