Senior Research Fellowships in the Humanities

Post: Senior Research Fellowship in the Humanities

Closing date and time: 24/05/2024 12:00 pm

The College invites applications for up to two Senior Research Fellowships in the Humanities tenable from 1 October 2024 for three years in the first instance, with the possibility of renewal.

These Fellowships are intended for those who possess clear international academic distinction at a senior level in research in the Humanities (normally building on the existing strengths of the College). Applicants should not already hold a college affiliation. It is expected that applicants will be employed in the University of Oxford. However, the College is happy to consider suitably qualified applicants who do not hold a University post but who are located in Oxford and associated with institutions in Oxford or who are retired but still research-active.

The Fellowships offer Senior Common Room membership, full dining rights, a research allowance of £1,000 per annum, a nominal Fellowship stipend, and eligibility to apply to the College’s Major Research Grants Fund.


Further information on the Senior Research Fellowships may be obtained from the link below.

How to apply:

Applicants should complete the online form by 12 noon on Friday, 24 May 2024.

It is the responsibility of applicants to ask their referees to upload their reference letters via the reference submission portal by the same date.

It is anticipated that interviews will take place on Tuesday, 11 June 2024. If interviews are conducted in-person, reasonable interview expenses will be reimbursed, and overnight accommodation can be offered if required. Interviews may be conducted remotely.

Queries may be addressed through the Principal’s PA, Helen Gee (helen.gee@jesus.ox.ac.uk).
