The College proposes to elect an outstanding early career academic who is undertaking funded research in private law, to commence in 2023.
The Early Career Fellowship is a non-stipendiary three-year fixed-term position, and the successful applicant should normally – at the time of taking up the post – be in possession of a doctorate. Applicants should also be able to demonstrate that they will have funding in place, as well as a position in the University of Oxford or other local research institution, for the duration of the Fellowship (up to three and, usually, not less than two, years). Candidates should not normally have completed a PhD or equivalent earlier than 1 October 2017 (with the exception of career breaks, e.g. for parental leave), and 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 Fellowship is a non-governing body position, that is, the post-holder will not be a Trustee of the College. No offer of appointment is confirmed until the recommendation of the appointment committee has been approved by the Governing Body of the College.
The main duty of the Fellow will be to undertake research. A limited amount of paid undergraduate teaching, and of teaching-related work, is required: for further details see the Appendix in the further particulars. Participation in the academic, cultural and social life of the College is strongly encouraged.
