The College proposes to award a Junior Research Fellowship in Fusion Plasma Physics, tenable from 1 October 2014 for three years. The post is intended to be a career development position suitable for someone who is close to completing a doctorate, or is of post-doctoral standing in the early stages of their academic career. This post is part of the partnership between the University of Oxford and the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy.
The Junior Research Fellow is expected to engage in high quality research with a substantial theoretical component in the field of Fusion Plasma Physics. The Junior Research Fellow will be required, in term time, to give 2 hours per week of tuition in Physics. The postholder will also be required to take part in the annual undergraduate admissions procedures. Candidates must have a minimum qualification of a Bachelor of Science degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject and evidence of a high standard of research ability or potential (commensurate with the candidate’s career).
The Fellow will receive a stipend in the range of £29,837 - £35,597 per annum (revised annually), including a housing allowance of £4,000, and will have access to certain travel, research and publication funds. The Fellow is entitled to free accommodation (but will be responsible for Council taxes and utility bills) - should this option be taken, the housing allowance will not be paid. When the kitchens are open, the Fellow is entitled to free meals in the College as a member of the Senior Common Room.
Applications must be received by noon on Thursday 13th March 2014 and should include an official Application Form, a covering letter, a summary (maximum of 2 pages) of research interests and plans, including how these link to research at Culham, and a current curriculum vitae. Applicants must also arrange for two confidential letters of recommendation to be sent direct to the College by the same date.
