POSTDOCTORAL PRIZE RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP IN POLITICS (UP TO 3 POSTS).
Nuffield College and the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford intend to appoint jointly, with effect from 1 September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter, up to three Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellows (PPRFs).
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, to take part in the intellectual life of the College and the Department, and to undertake to teach for the Department. Decisions about the nature and direction of the research undertaken will be wholly under the control of the Research Fellow, but the College and the Department will appoint academic mentors to provide support and advice. The specific teaching duties for the Department will be decided in consultation with the Head of Department and the relevant course directors in the Department. The amount of teaching to be undertaken is not expected to exceed 48 stint units per year.
Opportunity Focus Areas:
- Politics (political science, political behavior, comparative politics, political economy, electoral studies, political theory, political history).
- International Relations.
ALL WORLD COUNTRIES.
3 years (fixed term).
- Candidates should have completed, or be close to completing, a PhD/DPhil in a relevant field.
- Candidates must be within three years of the defense date (viva voce examination date) of their doctorate at the time of application.

- Preference will be given to candidates who have not previously held a research fellowship similar to that advertised for more than one year at the time of taking up the fellowship.
- Prospective candidates should also have experience of carrying out independent research and a track record of excellent quality papers appropriate for and commensurate with their career level.
- They should have the ability to provide excellent teaching to high-achieving students; the willingness to contribute to the intellectual life of the College and the Department; and excellent oral and written communication skills.
