Senior Research Fellowships

The Senior Research Fellowship is a renewable seven-year year fellowship equivalent to a full professorship or statutory chair in the University of Oxford or to a pure-research tenured chair in the U.S.  Senior Research Fellowships are open to senior academic and independent scholars with an outstanding record of research.

All Souls College intends to elect to two Senior Research Fellowships tenable from 1 October 2024 (or other agreed date), one in History Since 1500 and one in Life or Environmental Sciences. For the former, applications from within any area of this discipline are welcome. For the latter, applications should be specific to the Life and Environmental Sciences subject areas covered by the University of Oxford's Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences Division.    

Applications may now be made for the Senior Fellowship competition

Submit your application via the Online Platform

Closing date: Friday 15 September 2023, 12pm (UK time).

More information is available via the Further Particulars.
