Linacre College proposes to make elections to a variety of Junior Research Fellowships tenable for two years (subject to satisfactory progress) from 1st October 2024.

Junior Research Fellows will receive a research allowance of £300 p.a., enjoy Common Table 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 department 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 department 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 provide equality of opportunity regardless of gender, ethnicity, colour, disability, religion, family responsibility, age, occupation, marital status, sexual orientation or trade union affiliation.

We offer fellowships that can be held in any academic discipline, as well as others intended for those in the following fields: Biological, Chemical, or Medical Sciences, Biomedical Sciences, Biosciences, Astrophysics, Music, or studying Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its relationship to social, emotional, mental health and education.

Please apply using this application form. In addition, please send:

·         A covering letter outlining how you would contribute to the academic and social life of the College (One A4 page);

·         A brief curriculum vitae (no more than two A4 pages);

·         A research statement no longer than two sides of A4 and word processed in font size of at least 11pt.

Please send your application by email directly to the Academic Office by the closing date: Monday, 8th January 2024.

We anticipate that interviews will take place on: Tuesday, 20th February 2024
