Jobs and vacancies

This page contains details of those vacancies at Parks College currently open for applications, both employment opportunities and Fellowships. 

Parks College will foster a culture of interdisciplinary exchange by offering regular college events that catalyse this: workshops, seminars, reading groups and regular invited lectures for the whole college community.

All Fellows will be expected to subscribe enthusiastically to the college ethos. Post-doctoral scholars with relevant research interests will be appointed as Research Fellows. Official Fellows will commit to organising, jointly with another Fellow (who could be another Official Fellow or a Research Fellow), at least one interdisciplinary seminar series or reading group each academic year.

Recruitment timeline

We have appointed the ‘Theme Leads’ for the three initial research clusters of the college: (a) Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning; (b) Environmental Change; and (c) Cellular Life. In November, we will be advertising a number of Official Fellowships in each of these areas. Initially, we will be looking for Research Professors (RSIVs) and Senior Research Fellows/Associate Professors with no existing College Fellowships. Their research will be related to one of the three themes, and they will have a strong interest in interacting with other researchers beyond the boundaries of their own discipline.

In November, we will also be advertising Fellowships in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, as well as a Fellowship in Environmental Sustainability. In Hilary Term 2020, we plan to appoint a number of Research Fellows whose research interests are aligned with one of the three initial clusters.

Next academic year (2020-21), we will advertise other Fellowships, again with an emphasis on interdisciplinary research, but not necessarily with a connection to the three initial themes.

Future opportunities will be posted as they arise.
