Research Fellowships

Job Description
Additional Information

Green Templeton College proposes to elect a number of Research Fellows in fields that are aligned with the academic mission of the College. The College has a strong commitment to scholarship that impacts on human welfare. We seek to foster interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research, as well as the engagement of academia with practice.

The main interests represented by the current Fellowship at Green Templeton College fall into three broad fields – Medicine, Management Studies and Applied Social Sciences. Specific current interests include management science, strategy and organisation; philanthropy; healthcare and public health; ageing; social policy, social interventions and social care; internet studies; environment; international development; education; criminology; history and anthropology of medicine; and journalism. While the competition is open as to field, the College particularly welcomes applications from appropriately qualified candidates who would strengthen existing interests. Green Templeton College is especially keen to attract researchers at early stages in their careers.

It is expected that potential candidates will already hold an appointment in the University of Oxford, typically in a University Department or associated Research Unit. Researchers in posts funded by research councils or foundations are eligible. Research Fellows must be engaged in independent research of a very high calibre, at a level that appropriately reflects the current stage of their academic careers. The affiliation as a Research Fellow provides an opportunity for active involvement in the intellectual and social life of the College. There is an expectation that Fellows will act as advisor for a small number of postgraduate students.

Research Fellowships at Green Templeton College are non-stipendiary, and it is expected that potential candidates will hold funded positions in Oxford for the duration of their appointment. Research Fellows will have full access to all College facilities, will be entitled to free dining rights, and are eligible to apply to a College fund for research and development grants.

Candidates should ensure that their application reaches the College by Friday 8 June at 12 noon. Applications should be sent to Jane Wastie, HR Manager at Green Templeton College, 43 Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6HG or e-mailed to Candidates are requested to submit:

  • A cover letter specifying how they expect to contribute to the life of the College and the programme of research they expect to pursue while holding the Research Fellowship or Senior Research Fellowship.
    A full curriculum vitae.
    A list of published work.
    The names and addresses of three referees. In addition, candidates should arrange for their three referees to send a confidential reference directly to Jane Wastie, HR Manager, Green Templeton College, 43 Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6HG or e-mailed to by Friday, 8th June 2018 at 12 noon

It is anticipated that interviews will be held in College on Tuesday, 26th June 2018.

Green Templeton College values diversity and aspires to reflect this in its workforce. We welcome applications from people from all sections of the community, irrespective of race, colour, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief.
