Non-Stipendiary Postdoctoral Associateships in Medical Sciences


Contract length: 1 year (possibility of renewal for up to two additional years)

Application Deadline: 3 July 2020, 12:00


St Cross College invites applications for four non-stipendiary Postdoctoral Associateships in Medical Sciences tenable for one year from 1 October 2020 with the possibility of renewal for up to two further years dependent on continued postdoctoral post funding at Oxford. The Associateships will carry common table rights for two days a week and are open to individuals in any Medical Sciences academic discipline who do not have a current affiliation with any Oxford college, who have already completed their doctorate and who are in a funded postdoctoral post at the University of Oxford of at least one year's duration from October 2020. Successful candidates will normally be within six years of having completed the requirements for their doctorate and not be in a tenured post, and will be selected with reference to their ability and willingness to contribute to the intellectual, educational, sporting and social life of the College. This should be outlined in a covering letter providing the reasons for desiring a College membership and the ways in which the applicant will contribute to College life alongside their research.

Applicants should also submit a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research plans accessible to non-specialists and should ask two referees to write on their behalf to the College. Also required as part of the application is a signed statement from an appropriate officer of the Oxford faculty in which the applicant is working that it will provide the necessary support in terms of space and resources if the candidate is elected as a Postdoctoral Associate.

Applications (and letters from referees) should be sent to Lesley Sanderson, Master's PA ( by no later than 3 July 2020, 12:00.
