University of Oxford - Blavatnik School of Government

Location: Oxford
Salary: £34,304 p.a. Grade 7.2
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract

The Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford is seeking to recruit up to three Postdoctoral Research Fellows, whom we will designate as Career Development Fellows. These fellowships are aimed at early career academics with exciting research agendas addressing challenges of government that are common to many countries. We wish to appoint people with the potential to become candidates for Associate Professorships in the School, people who are committed to doing innovative and outstanding teaching, research, and public policy engagement.

 
Successful candidates would become part of a community which includes world-class academics and practitioners, as well as a team of up-and-coming postdoctoral fellows. Our students (MPP, doctorate, and soon MSc) come from 70+ different nations and range in age and experience from the brightest emerging talent to senior practitioners.
 
Each Career Development Fellow will have a faculty mentor, opportunities to teach, and will be given support in attempts to engage in the world of policy. Each Fellow will be supported to undertake their own research and to participate in programmes in the School, with access to a £5k per annum research allowance.
 
We are a School interested in world-class professional teaching as well as world-class research. The teaching associated with this post is limited, in order to give early career candidates more time to devote to developing and publishing their own research. But over the course of the fellowship, we will be interested in having you spend some time in the classroom or supporting teaching, both on our degree (MPP, MSc) and non-degree executive programmes. Uniquely, this fellowship is aimed at attracting those who are or will become great in the classroom even though the fellowship itself involves little required teaching.
 
You will engage in and manage original, world-class research which addresses challenges faced by governments; collaborate in the preparation of research publications and/or book chapters; disseminate research through publication in highly-ranked, peer reviewed academic and/or practitioner journals; present papers at international conferences and seminars; and teach on our degree programmes.
 
You will have a doctorate in a discipline relevant to the School’s work dealing with governments and public policy (e.g., public management, public policy, law, economics, politics, philosophy, international relations, sociology, or science and technology studies). You will show evidence of ability and willingness to undertake applied research that has the potential to have impact on public policy and practice; evidence of developing a track record of internationally excellent publications in highly-ranked, peer-reviewed academic journals, commensurate with the candidate’s career stage; and have the ability to carry out independent, world-class research.
