It is tenable for a year in the first instance and may be renewable for a second year.

Nuffield College

Prize Research Fellowships

Applications are invited from graduates from any country wishing to undertake research in the social sciences. The main interests of the college are in economics, politics, and sociology, but these are broadly construed to include, for example, recent history, social and medical statistics, international relations, area studies, and social psychology. Candidates should normally, by October 1999, have completed, or be close to completing, a doctoral thesis. To be eligible, candidates should not, by that date, have spent more than a total of eight years in postgraduate study in the social sciences, and/or in employment in a teaching or research post in the social sciences (nor should they have previously held a research fellowship similar to that advertised).

The salary scale for a postdoctoral fellow is from £14,580 to £16,470. Pre-doctoral fellows receive a grant of £8,009. In both cases fellows receive free single accommodation in college or a housing allowance of £2,636 per year.

Further particulars can be obtained from the Secretary to the PRF Competition, Nuffield College, Oxford OX1 1NE (e-mail: alison.bateman@nuf.ox.ac.uk). Applications must be received by Friday, 6 November.
