The Governing Body of The Queen’s College Oxford proposes to elect two Non-Stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships (technically known as an Extraordinary Junior Research Fellowships), one in Pathology and the other in Clinical Sciences. The successful candidates will enter upon the Fellowship on 1st October 2024.

About the Fellowships

Candidates must hold a suitable stipendiary research appointment in the University or a department of the University, or should have been offered and accepted such an appointment in the academic year in which the Fellowship is to be taken up.  The Fellowships will be tenable for up to three years and may be renewed for a further period not exceeding two years. The Fellowships would therefore suit post-doctoral research scientists and/or research fellows whose tenure of a research appointment extends for at least three years from the date of entering upon the Fellowship.  A Fellow shall vacate the Fellowship immediately on ceasing to hold the research appointment which qualified him or her for election, although this condition may be waived if the Fellow secures an alternative qualifying appointment.

Although the purpose of the Fellowships is to encourage research in Pathology and Clinical Sciences, broadly defined, each Fellow may, with the leave of the Governing Body, engage in teaching up to a maximum of six hours weekly and, if teaching, would normally be expected to give priority to the College’s own teaching needs.  Any such teaching would be remunerated at the standard rate.

Candidates must not have accumulated more than ten years in full-time postgraduate study or research by 24th July 2024.

We are committed to fostering equality, diversity and inclusiveness. We particularly encourage applications from women, disabled people and people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, as these groups are currently under-represented in the College’s academic staff.


The Fellowship is non-stipendiary and does not carry entitlement to rooms, but the Fellow will be a member of the Senior Common Room and entitled to free meals in College and all other privileges enjoyed by ordinary Junior Research Fellows. A personal allowance of £1,921 per annum is provided by the College for research activities such as conference attendance, research assistance, and the purchase of books and software.

Applications close on midday 22nd April 2024. Interviews are expected to be held 14th June 2024.
