Nuffield College

Official Fellowship in Politics

Nuffield College proposes to appoint, with effect from 1 October 1998, an Official Fellow in Politics. Official fellowships are comparable with research professorships in other universities, and form part of the permanent research and teaching establishment of the college. For this particular appointment, preference will be given to scholars with a focus on Comparative Politics broadly defined, especially those specialising in the politics of one or more of the developed nations. Nevertheless, outstanding candidates with a substantial scholarly record which falls beyond this definition will also be considered.

The duties of an official fellow are to engage in research and supervise graduate students; an established scholarly record is essential. Nuffield is a graduate college specialising in the social sciences at Oxford, particularly politics, economics, and sociology.

Nuffield College is committed to the principle of equality of opportunity.

Further details can be obtained from our Web site, http://www.nuff.ox.ac.uk/Jobs/, or from Mrs Marion Rogers, Nuffield College, Oxford OX1 1NF (e-mail: marion.rogers@ nuf.ox.ac.uk), to whom applications, naming three referees, with addresses and fax numbers where possible, should be sent by 1 December.
