Asoke Kumar Sarkar Research Fellowship in Classical Indology

Closing date: 
Friday 19 January
Salary: Grade 6 of the Oxford salary scale, starting at stage 4, rising to stage 6 (currently £30,688 to £32,548)

Location: Balliol College, Oxford, OX1 3BJ

Contract type: Fixed term for three years

The College proposes to elect a three-year fixed-term Research Fellow in Classical Indology.  The position is available from 1 October 2018. 

Research experience and proposed research may be in any area of Classical Indology.

The successful applicant will be in possession of a doctorate, but should not normally have completed a PhD earlier than 1 October 2010 (with the exception of career breaks, e.g. for parental leave). The College especially encourages applications from those who have not yet had a comparable college-linked position.  No applicant who has been appointed to a permanent academic post in an institution of higher education at any time in their career will be eligible.

The main duties of the Fellow will be to undertake research, to contribute to the College’s academic culture, and to participate in the admission and oversight of students of Oriental Studies at Balliol. The successful candidate will show outstanding promise in their field of study, and have a well-designed project that requires innovative and independent research which can be achieved during the period of the fellowship.

Further particulars including details of how to apply may be obtained here.

The deadline for applications is 12 noon GMT on Friday 19 January 2018
