Application forms (downloadable from the college website http://www.univ.ox.ac.uk/content/junior-research-fellowship-law). Deadline November 28, 2016. Further details about University College, including the research of current fellows, are available from our website at http://www.univ.ox.ac.uk.

The primary criterion for appointment to the JRF will be research excellence. Candidates must: (1) have a strong educational record; (2) be approaching the end of their doctoral research or have recently completed their doctorates; (3) have research expertise demonstrated by publications, or demonstrate promise of such achievement; and (4) have a coherent plan of research for the duration of the fellowship. The potential to become an effective teacher will be a secondary consideration. Candidates must be confident that they will have obtained their doctorates by the start of their appointment. Conversely, this position is not intended for those who have already held another stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship or equivalent or for those who obtained their doctorates more than two years prior to the application date (except in special circumstances). Selected candidates may be asked to submit written work, which may be one or two published or submitted articles, or a chapter from their thesis. Applicants should indicate on their application form what material they propose to submit, but should not at this stage submit any written work. Application forms to send to Academic Services Manager, University College, Oxford OX1 4BH (fax: 01865 276790, tel: +44 (0)1865 276951; email: recruitment@univ.ox.ac.uk) by 12.00 noon (UK time) on Monday 28 November 2016. Applicants should arrange for three referees to send their references to the Academic Services Manager by the same date. Interviews for shortlisted candidates are expected to be held on Tuesday 17 January 2017 (to be confirmed).
