Senior Research Fellowships 2020: Further Particulars
All Souls College intends to elect to two Senior Research Fellowships tenable from 1 October 2020 (or other agreed date), one in Linguistics and one in Mathematics. Applications from within any area of these disciplines are welcome.
A Senior Research Fellowship is of comparable academic standing to a statutory Professorship in the University of Oxford or to a pure-research tenured chair in the U.S. Applicants are expected to have a correspondingly distinguished record of achievement in research. Those elected may, in addition, apply within the University for the title of ‘Professor’.
Job Description and Terms of Fellowship
The primary duty of a Senior Research Fellow is to pursue on a full-time basis a programme of academic research in Oxford. Senior Research Fellows are members of the Governing Body of the College. As such, they are expected to attend and participate in all full meetings of the College and may be asked to serve on College committees, to assist with the annual Prize Fellowship examination and, for a limited period, to hold a part-time College officer-ship. Leave of absence may be granted to allow Fellows to work away from Oxford for up to one term in seven, when this would be beneficial to their programme of research. In exceptional circumstances, the College will entertain applications for further leave. Senior Research Fellows may take on limited other commitments, subject to discharging the obligations of their Fellowship.
Senior Research Fellows report every two years on the progress of their research programmes. The College does not regard Fellows as bound indissolubly to the particular programmes they have proposed and may permit Fellows to vary them. Senior Research Fellowships are subject to renewal by the College every seven years. The College will renew the Fellowship on evidence of satisfactory achievement and on presentation of a satisfactory programme of research for the following seven years (or until retirement). The College has adopted a normal retirement age of 30 September before the 69th birthday. As the College is a charity of which the Fellows are trustees, the successful applicants must be eligible to be a charity trustee and discharge this responsibility effectively.
All Senior Research Fellows will be assigned a study in College or one of its ancillary buildings. Studies are connected to the University IT network and the College assists with the purchase of computing equipment. In addition, the College provides an academic allowance of up to £3,825 a year to cover research expenses. Fellows can apply for additional grants towards research expenses and in support of conferences and seminars they may wish to arrange in College.
