St Hilda’s College Oxford intends to elect a full-time Stipendiary VH Galbraith Junior Research Fellow for a period of three years from 1 October 2020 (or as soon as possible thereafter). The person appointed will be expected to undertake advanced research in Medieval Studies and the Fellowship is open to those who will have completed a PhD/DPhil or who will be near completion at the time of taking up the post.
Applicants may be working on literature of any language in the area of Medieval Studies. The primary duty of the post is to carry out research; in addition to the potential supervision within the Department, the JRF will receive additional academic mentoring by a College Fellow (see http://www.st-hildas.ox.ac.uk/college/academic-staff).
The primary criterion for appointment to the Junior Research Fellowship will be research excellence.
The stipend will start at Grade 7, point 1, which is £32,817 per annum and is pensionable under the Universities Superannuation Scheme.
The Fellow will be provided with use of a shared office in College. Fellows are entitled to free meals, are members of the Senior Common Room, and may apply for research expenses (currently up to £1,800 per annum). They will also be eligible to apply for small project and event grants through the College’s Research Committee.
The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Friday 10 January 2020. Further details, including information on how to apply, may be downloaded from the College website at https://www.sthildas.ox.ac.uk/content/vacancies, or obtained from the Academic Registrar, St Hilda’s College, Oxford OX4 1DY (firstname.lastname@example.org).
