Non-Stipendiary College Associations for Research Staff

Welcome to the Non-Stipendiary College Associations webpage. 

Benefits of acquiring a college association

There are many benefits to acquiring a college association.  Most importantly, it enables researchers to meet and talk with people beyond their own department or academic discipline.  An opportunity to engage with the wider collegiate research and teaching community is considered a quintessential part of the Oxford experience, for University research staff as well as their external collaborators and visitors.  Such benefits are at the core of the collegiate system.

Types of Association

  • There are many different forms of non-stipendiary college associations, from Junior Research Fellowships to lighter forms of association such as Senior Common Room membership or association in return for acting as a College Adviser. 
  • The form of non-stipendiary association offered will vary by college and/or vacancy. 
  • All vacancies listed below are for non-stipendiary positions.  Applicants must have their salary funded via another source. 
  • All forms of association enable researchers to meet others outside their field,  and to forge new intellectual and social links.

The application process

  • Applications for non-stipendiary association should be made directly to the relevant college following the procedure described in the further particulars.
  • Please see the details of each individual opportunity to learn more about entitlements offered, the eligibility requirements, and the objectives of the college in making the appointment.
  • Associations are in demand and there are usually more research staff seeking college association than positions available, leading to a competitive selection process. 
  • Following the positive discussion among Head of House at Conference on 8 December 2020, colleges are encouraged to expand the number of associations going forward and so do revisit this page if you do not find a suitable vacancy today.

Other useful web resources

  • Colleges are invited to advertise their vacancies for non-stipendiary college association to University research staff via this page.   Additional opportunities may be advertised on the website of individual colleges.

CollegeSt Antony’s College
Type of associationSCR membership
Brief details

St Antony’s offers the opportunity to apply for Senior Common Room (SCR) membership to anyone who does not already have an affiliation with any college in Oxford and is on the payroll of any of those departments from which the college recruits graduate students, essentially all departments in the Social Sciences Division (plus the Oxford Martin School) and the Faculties of History and Oriental Studies in the Humanities Division.

SCR members cannot apply directly but must be nominated by their Head of Department or Chair of Faculty and must be willing to be a college advisor for up to 4 (occasionally 5) graduate students. College advisors are supported by the College's Registrar, Dean and Senior Tutor and the role involves offering support for students on the non-academic aspects of their time in Oxford. College advisors are matched with students outside their academic departments to avoid any conflict of interest.

SCR members are entitled to free lunches throughout the year and to use of the Senior Common Room in the College. They are encouraged to attend College academic seminars and workshops but not required to do so. The SCR memberships are coterminous with the applicant’s university contracts up to a maximum of three years.

To find out more, seeNominations should be sent by Heads of Department/Faculty Chairs to warden@sant.ox.ac.uk
Closing dateThe college allows nominations by Heads of Department/Faculty Chairs throughout the year but particularly encourages them before the beginning of Michaelmas Term so that college advisees can be allocated to advisors from when they first arrive.
