The Queen’s College, University of Oxford, is offering a fixed-term (non-renewable) Junior Research Fellowship in History for candidates who hold a doctorate in History or a closely related field, or can confidently be expected to have been awarded such a doctorate by the expected starting date of 1st October 2023.

The JRF will be required (i) to engage in research of a quality commensurate with publication in leading refereed and international journals; (ii) to develop and manage their own programme of independent research; (iii) to present their research at international conferences and research workshops; and (iv) to participate in the intellectual life of the College by attending, and where possible by organising, seminars, workshops, conferences, and other academic events.

The Fellowship offers researchers the opportunity to develop their research within one of the world’s leading universities and so strengthen their future position in the academic job market. Many previous Junior Research Fellows have moved on to permanent faculty positions at leading world universities.

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.

Salary and Allowances:

The salary for this post is £34,308. A personal research allowance of £1,781 per annum is provided by the College for research activities such as conference attendance, research assistance, and the purchase of books, computer equipment and software. The College will provide a non-residential study room on the main site in central Oxford. The Junior Research Fellow will be a member of the Senior Common Room at The Queen’s College, and entitled to free meals. The appointee will be nominated for associate membership of the Faculty of History.
