Fellowship Description: Applications are invited for the post of Violette and Samuel Glasstone Research Fellow in Science, tenable at the University of Oxford, in the fields of Chemistry (Inorganic, Organic or Physical), Engineering, Mathematics (including Computer Science and Statistics), Materials, Physics, and Plant Sciences.
The Glasstone Research Fellowships are supported by the Glasstone Bequest, and it is a requirement of the regulation governing it that the benefaction is divided equally into two funds: the income from one fund supports a fellowship for men, the income from the other fund supports a fellowship for women. There are, therefore, two posts available, one open to men and one open to women.
Glasstone Fellows are expected to conduct original research in one of the eligible fields specified in para. 1 and may undertake teaching of up to a maximum of six hours a week.
Applicants should have completed their doctorate by the time of taking up the Fellowship (normally 1 October of the year in which the offer is made). They should show aptitude for original research in one of the eligible fields specified in para.1 and have a publication record in high-calibre refereed journals consonant with experience and field of study. Their research interests should complement departments’ research interests. Moreover, applicants should normally have, or be seeking to obtain, experience in more than one academic institution. Preference will be given to candidates who are at an early stage in their academic career.
The Fellowships are normally awarded for three years (subject to successful completion of a probationary period) and will be available from 1 October 2011 or as soon as possible thereafter. Depending on the successful candidates’ proposed research topic, the Fellowships will be held at any of the following departments or sub-departments: Chemistry (Inorganic, Organic or Physical and Theoretical Chemistry), Computing Laboratory, Engineering Science, Mathematical Institute, Materials, Physics (Astrophysics, Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics, Atomic and Laser Physics, Condense Matter Physics, Particle Physics, Theoretical Physics), Plant Sciences, and Statistics.
Fellowship Application Deadline: Friday 10 December 2010
