Nuffield College Oxford, in partnership with the John Fell Fund and the Department of Sociology, intends to appoint a John Fell Fund Research Fellow in Experimental Social Sciences, with effect from 1 September 2010.

Applications are invited from graduates of any country wishing to undertake experimental research in any area of sociology. Applicants who wish to undertake interdisciplinary research which includes sociology will also be considered.

The John Fell Fund Research Fellow will be based in the interdisciplinary Centre for Experimental Social Sciences (CESS) and the Department of Sociology. CESS was established by Nuffield College to promote and facilitate experimental research by social scientists in Oxford. The Research Fellow’s main responsibility is to engage in independent scholarly research and to contribute to the development of experimental social science in the College and the Department of Sociology. He or she will be expected to contribute a small amount of teaching in CESS and the Department, in the graduate programmes of the social sciences at Oxford. This is a joint Fellowship with the Department of Sociology and CESS and hence the Fellow will be expected to divide his or her time between the two units.

The salary will be £26,000 a year. A research support allowance of £1,000 per year is provided with the post, and the Research Fellow will be expected to secure external funding to support more ambitious research activities. The Research Fellow will be entitled to free lunch and dinner in College.

Scholars from any country may apply for the Fellowship. To be eligible, candidates should by 1 September 2010 have completed, or be close to completing, a doctorate, or should be at a comparable point in a research career. Candidates must not have spent more than a total of eight years in postgraduate study, teaching or research in the social sciences by the date of taking up the Fellowship, and should not have previously held a research fellowship similar to that advertised. The appointment will be for a fixed term of three years.
