Henry Skynner Research Fellowship in Astrophysics


Grade 7: £31,604 p.a. (with benefits)

Oxford, OX1 3BJ.

Balliol College proposes to elect a two-year fixed term Henry Skynner Research Fellow in Astrophysics, starting on 1 October 2018, whose focus of research will be in the area of gravitational physics and its relation to string theory, including topics such as gravitational waves, inflation and string cosmology. Applicants should possess (or be close to obtaining) a doctorate in physics and have research experience in the above-mentioned area.

This research fellowship is a non-governing body position, that is, the postholder will not be a Trustee of the College, and in its current statutes will be elected to a Supernumerary Fellowship. The main duty of the fellow will be to undertake research, but participation in the educational activities of the college, including, if desired, a small amount of paid tutorial teaching, would be welcomed.

Further particulars, including benefits and details of how to apply, are here.

Applications should be delivered to college.office@balliol.ox.ac.uk by 12.00 noon (GMT) on 30 November 2017. Applicants should arrange for two references to be sent to the same address and by the same date. They should also complete an Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form. 

If you have any further questions about this position please contact andre.lukas@physics.ox.ac.uk or pedro.ferreira@physics.ox.ac.uk.

Balliol College is committed to equality, values diversity, and particularly encourages applications from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
