Three Colleges at the University of Oxford—St John’s, Merton, and Christ Church—propose to elect in co-operation up to twelve Junior Research Fellows, in Arts and Science, according to an agreed allocation of subjects between the colleges. This year, St John’s College will be accepting applications from scholars working in music studies. St John’s College is proposing to elect up to two JRFs in the Humanities and Social Sciences, and two in the Sciences. Music will be considered in a field that includes applications from scholars working in four other disciplines: history, archaeology, geography and anthropology.
A Junior Research Fellowship (commonly known as a JRF) is essentially an extended postdoctoral fellowship. At St John’s College, Junior Research Fellowships are tenable for three years and may be (and often are) extended for a further year. Teaching is not required, but a Junior Research Fellow may be permitted to undertake teaching up to a maximum of six hours a week during full term.
A Junior Research Fellow at St John’s College is entitled to single College accommodation (subject to availability) or to a housing allowance (as outlined in the further particulars). Partnered accommodation may be available (for details contact the relevant College). Fellows are entitled to rather sumptuous free lunches (6 days per week) and dinners at High Table (6 evenings per week). Other allowances (including University fees) and facilities are offered at the discretion of the Governing Bodies.
Candidates are asked to name two referees and to request that each referee email a reference to: firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday November 28th 2014, 12 noon (GMT).
Shortlisting, interviewing, and appointing procedures will be conducted in late February and early March 2015.
