Fellowships for Early Career Researchers / Career Development Fellowships 2024 in the following fields: Humanities & Social Sciences: Anthropology, Archaeology, History Sciences: Mathematics, Computer Science
Merton College proposes to appoint up to three three-year, fixed-term Early Career Researchers from 1 October 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter. Two will be in the fields of Archaeology, Anthropology, and History; one in Mathematics or Computer Science. The posts are available to early career researchers and are intended to provide opportunities for the successful applicants to establish a research profile and to help prepare postholders for academic careers.
The Early Career Researchers are expected to undertake a high-quality programme of original research in one of the subjects specified above, to publicise outcomes and to engage in the academic life of the College. They may also undertake a limited amount of teaching.
Candidates should hold a recently completed doctorate or be close to completion of a doctorate and will have submitted their thesis no later than 3 months before the start date. Those who formally submitted their doctoral thesis for viva voce examination before 1 October 2022 are not eligible, unless they have had a career break or if there are other exceptional circumstances. Those whose doctorate interrupted their professional training, should have completed their professional training since 1 October 2022.
Candidates must also have research expertise in their chosen field commensurate with the candidate’s career as demonstrated by a recently completed (or close to being completed) doctoral thesis, published or forthcoming books or articles in refereed journals (as relevant to the candidate’s field), or evidence of such future achievement. Evidence of active participation in the successful dissemination of research findings and a coherent plan of research for the duration of the appointment, and which is expected to make a valuable contribution to the candidate’s field, is also required.
The duties and skills required are described in more detail in the further particulars which also contain details of eligibility criteria, how to apply and allowances associated with the Fellowships. These are available by clicking the 'Apply' button above. The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 10 November 2023. Interviews are expected to be held in February 2024.
Applications are particularly welcome from women, candidates with a disability, and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts at the University of Oxford. All applicants will be judged on merit, according to the selection criteria.
Merton College is an equal opportunities employer.
