Descripción


Nuffield College intends to appoint, with effect from 1 September 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter, two Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellows (PPRFs) in Sociology, broadly construed to include sociology, demography, social and medical statistics, social psychology, public policy, and social policy. Applicants who wish to undertake research in Economic History, or interdisciplinary research in Sociology which includes Economics and/or Politics are also welcome to apply for the Fellowships. The College particularly encourages applications from candidates who work or plan to work in the field of one or more of the College’s Sociology Fellows.

The deadline for receipt of application packages is Friday 30 September 2016.

Value:

£30,114 per annum.

The postdoctoral fellowships are available for three years.

The aim of the competition is to identify and attract candidates who are reaching or have reached the end of their doctorate and have the potential to produce high quality research and to become world-class scholars in the social sciences.

The key responsibilities of the Research Fellows are to engage in independent scholarly research, and to take part in the intellectual life of the College. Research Fellows may also undertake ad hoc paid teaching or supervision within the collegiate University, up to a maximum of 48 hours per year. Decisions about the nature and direction of the research undertaken will be wholly under the control of the Research Fellow, but the College will appoint academic mentors to provide support and advice.
