Gordon Milburn Research Fellow

About the role

The Faculty of Theology and Religion seeks to appoint to the Gordon Milburn Research Fellowship, which will be held in conjunction with Campion Hall.

This Fellowship is designed for an individual with outstanding potential who is still at an early stage of their academic career. This is a fixed-term appointment for three years from 1 October 2024, or as soon as possible thereafter.

You will be responsible for devising, carrying out and managing your own research project of advanced research in the theological or philosophical study of mysticism or religious experience, broadly interpreted, of any religious tradition. You will also contribute to research and teaching at the Faculty of Theology and Religion.

You will have access to a Faculty research allowance, which is currently £1,500 per annum.

This Fellowship is supported from a fund which was established to promote the theological or the philosophical study within the University of Oxford of mysticism and religious experience in memory of the author and missionary Robert Gordon Milburn, vice-principal of Bishop's College, Calcutta, 1906-14, who died in 1968.

About you

You will hold, or be close to completion of, a postgraduate qualification (which would normally be a doctorate) in a relevant area of theological or philosophical study of mysticism or religious experience, broadly interpreted, of any religious tradition. You will be able to evidence some experience of research. The duties and skills required are described in more detail in the further particulars.

If, for any reason, you have taken a career break or have had an atypical career and wish to disclose this in your application, the selection committee will take this into account. The selection committee will also be mindful of the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic may have had on candidates' careers as a result of additional caring responsibilities or other factors.

Application process

Please submit your application online via the below link. You will be required to upload a supporting statement (setting out how you meet the selection criteria for the post, using examples of your skills and experience), curriculum vitae and a 500-word proposal for your research project.

The closing date for applications is midday on Monday 22 April 2024. Interviews are planned to be held in the week commencing Monday 13 May 2024.
