Mary R. Emerson Career Development Fellowship in Engineering Science
Applications are invited for a Career Development Fellowship in Engineering Science at St Hugh’s College, Oxford, tenable from 1st October 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. This is a fixed-term three-year position, and will suit an individual who has recently completed a PhD/DPhil, and who wishes to develop their academic career by furthering their research while gaining experience of teaching.
Under the direction of the Fellows in Engineering, the postholder will contribute (to an average of three hours per week during term) to the teaching of undergraduates, at St Hugh’s or other colleges, and will also be expected to use the period of the Fellowship to begin building an international research profile. The research activities of the Fellow will be supported by the University’s Department of Engineering Science, where they will have laboratory space. Career Development Fellows have teaching spaces at St Hugh’s, and are encouraged to take a full part in the intellectual life of the College.
An additional and integral aspect of the role will the promotion of women in Engineering in academia and in industry. The postholder will organise a programme of events to raise the profile of women in the sector. This will be done in collaboration with the Department of Engineering Science and in particular with the Department’s Academic Outreach Officer. The College will also offer assistance in the organisation of such programmes.
Applications for this post will be considered by a selection committee responsible for conducting all aspects of the recruitment and selection process; the committee does not, however, have the authority to make the final decision as to who should be appointed. The final decision will be made by the Governing Body of St Hugh’s College on the basis of a recommendation made by the selection committee. No offer of appointment will be valid, therefore, until and unless the recommendation has been approved by the Governing Body and a formal contractual offer has been made. The appointment will be subject to provision of proof of the right to work in the UK.
The formal selection criteria for the post are as follows:
1. Evidence of ability to produce work of international standing within the candidate’s field of research.
2. Evidence of ability to teach undergraduate students Engineering Science at the highest level.
3. The candidate should have already received the degree of PhD/DPhil or equivalent at the point of application. The candidate should not normally have accumulated more than seven years (not counting career breaks) in full-time graduate study or research. The selection committee will apply these criteria bearing in mind the stage reached in a candidate’s career.
