Non-Stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships

Linacre College proposes to make elections to ten Junior Research Fellowships tenable for two years (subject to satisfactory progress) from 1 October 2018.  Junior Research Fellows will receive a research allowance of £300 p.a., enjoy dining rights in College, full access to social and sports facilities and may apply for travel grants.  Candidates do not need to apply for a specific fellowship but will be considered for all those fellowships for which they are eligible. Candidates should be engaged in or intending to engage in research at post-doctoral level in an academic unit of the University of Oxford.

Applicants who do not yet have a higher research degree will normally be expected to have submitted for a doctorate before taking up a Junior Research Fellowship. These Fellowships are non-stipendiary and therefore candidates must demonstrate they have adequate funding and the support of their academic unit for the duration of the Fellowship. Normally, the successful applicants will not have held a DPhil/PhD for more than five years, but the College will apply discretion when considering applications from those who have taken a career break.

Applications from members of all communities are welcomed.  Linacre College aims to reach beyond legislative boundaries to provide equality of opportunity regardless of gender, ethnicity, colour, disability, religion, family responsibility, age, occupation, marital status, sexual orientation or trade union affiliation.
