Welcome to the University of Oxford, and congratulations on your appointment to a research position. You're joining a community of around 5000 research staff across the University who make an invaluable contribution to our position as one of the best places in the world to do research.
Welcome Event for Research Staff
Every term we run an event to welcome new researchers to Oxford. It's a chance for you to find out about career and professional development opportunities, to hear about the services and support available for you throughout your time as a researcher here at Oxford, and to meet other new researchers from across the University over coffee and pastries.
You can find pages about working at the University on the Staff Gateway, including advice about living in Oxford, an introduction to the University, and other useful information about staff benefits; information about moving to Oxford is available from the Oxford University Welcome Service. Your PI/supervisor and your departmental administrator should be your first port of call if you're unsure about anything.
