Merton College proposes to elect a Peter J. Braam Research Fellow in Global Wellbeing for three years commencing on 1 October 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter. This is a prestigious career-development post, which will provide a promising academic with opportunities to develop as researcher.
The main duty of the post will be to undertake independent research in a topiccontributing to the solution of the global welfare problems. These problems might be humanitarian, natural or political, and can be broadly interpreted. The College will consider applications from a broad range of fields of study, including but not limited to international politics and development, economics, history, philosophy, law, medicine (e.g., epidemiology, virology, mental health), artificial intelligence and machine learning, etc., as long as a genuine case is made as to how the proposed research contributes specifically to the advancement of Global Wellbeing.
The successful applicant will hold a doctorate in a relevant subject area and/or have published or forthcoming books or articles in refereed journals as appropriate to the candidate’s field, and must demonstrate achievement (commensurate with the candidate’s career) in research at a standard that will contribute to and enhance the national and international profile of the subject at Oxford.
The postholder will be eligible for election as a Fellow of the College, and will need to demonstrate willingness to contribute to Merton College in that capacity and as a member of the College’s Governing Body.
The duties and skills required are described in more detail in the Further Particulars, which also contain the details on eligibility criteria and how to apply.
