Oxford fellowship in manuscript and text cultures

The appointed Fellow will take up their three-year position on 1 October 2016. Please note that Manuscript and Text Cultures is defined broadly, and those who are working on inscriptions (and bronzes) may also wish to consider applying.

The Governing Body of The Queen’s College invites applications from graduates of any university for election to a three-year post-doctoral position as a Junior Research Fellow in Manuscript and Text Cultures, with a research specialism in knowledge-production and text-transmission in pre-modern literate societies.

Fellowships are intended to support those at an early stage of their academic careers, and will normally be awarded to those who have recently completed their doctoral research, or are very close to completion. Candidates must not have accumulated more than seven years in full-time postgraduate study of research, nor have already held a post-doctoral research fellowship elsewhere.

The basic stipend of the Fellowship, which is pensionable under the Universities Superannuation Scheme, is £22,000 subject to adjustment in the light of any other emoluments enjoyed by the Fellow or in the light of any general alteration to University stipends. The Fellow will be entitled to free rooms in College, or to an allowance of £6,000 in lieu, and to free meals in College.

Applications should be submitted, preferably by e-mail to joyce.millar@queens.ox.ac.uk the Academic Administrator, by noon on Monday 15th February 2016.
