Academic vacancies


As a result of the University upgrading its online recruitment system, we are expecting the system to be unavailable from 1pm on Friday 24 May 2019 until it is restored as early as possible on Friday 31 May 2019.

During this period a list of job vacancies will be available to view, but applicants will have no access to their online accounts and will not be able to work on, or submit, any applications. This downtime has been taken into account when scheduling vacancy closing dates over this period.

If you are in the process of applying for a vacancy at the point the system is taken down, your partially completed application will be available for you to complete and submit when the system is restored. Please note, that all jobs must be submitted by 12.00 (midday) on the closing date stated in the job advert.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The University of Oxford and the Oxford Colleges advertise a range of academic vacancies. A limited selection of these vacancies are displayed on this webpage. 

  • To view all academic vacancies at the University of Oxford, please go to the Job Search webpage and select the relevant search criteria (e.g. Academic, All Departments).
  • An extensive list of academic and research vacancies in the Oxford Colleges can be found on the Conference of Colleges webpage.

Please note that the University of Oxford's retirement policy has changed. With effect from 1 October 2017, all academic and academic-related employees at Grade 8 and above have a retirement age of the 30 September before the 69th birthday. Further details are available here
