The Clayman-Fulford Junior Research Fellowship in ‘Politics and Political Thought'


The Governing Body of St Anne's College invites applications for the Clayman-Fulford Junior Research Fellowship, tenable from 1 October 2019. The Fellowship is offered for research in any area of ‘Politics and Political Thought’. The JRF is open to those at an early stage of their academic career, typically at post-doctoral level, though applicants in their last year of doctoral study are also eligible to apply.


Applicants must hold a PhD/DPhil or be near to completion and a copy of the doctoral award certificate or an academic reference confirming thesis submission will be required from the successful candidate before commencement of the position. Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in St Anne’s College and in the University of Oxford.

Selection Criteria

Applications will be judged primarily on the basis of the candidate’s potential to undertake a coherent, significant and exciting programme of research in an area of ‘Politics and Political Thought’, as evidenced by their research proposal, publication record and academic references. Applicants must have a high level of research ability. The programme of research must be of a standard which will make a valuable contribution to the candidate’s field.  Applicants must have a strong education record and be able to communicate well about the subject. Teaching experience at university level or evidence of the ability to teach undergraduates of high quality is desirable. 


The objectives of the College in making this appointment are: to develop the research profile and career of an early-career researcher; to develop and strengthen the research profile of the College; and more generally to contribute to the goal of maintaining the University of Oxford as a leading centre for research in Politics and Political Thought. The successful candidate will be expected to engage in research and its dissemination; propose, plan and manage a high quality programme of original research; and publicise the outcomes of that research through presentation of papers and publications. It is expected that the Fellow will also undertake up to three hours of teaching per week during term time for the College and engage in the life and activities of the College.

Research Fellows require the permission of Governing Body before undertaking any other paid employment whether in-term or in the vacation. They will be permitted to teach up to 6 hours per week in total, if circumstances warrant it and permission has been sought from the Senior Tutor.

Salary and Benefits

 ·         Stipend, including 3 hours of teaching per week, will be £26,222 (this figure may be reduced to take account of any award or grant already held by or promised to the successful applicant).  

·         A housing allowance of £4,828 pa will be paid.
