The Department of Economics, in partnership with Nuffield College, are offering two full-time Postdoctoral Research Fellowship openings for candidates who hold a PhD in a relevant field or are close to completion of a doctoral degree, starting from September 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter. The fellowships offer early career researchers the opportunity to develop their research portfolio within one of the world's leading Economics departments and so strengthen their future position in the academic job market.

The postholder will undertake further duties for Nuffield College including (i) participating in the intellectual life of the College by attending, and where possible by organising, seminars, workshops, conferences, and other academic events; (ii) acting as mentors for graduate students, where appropriate; and (iii) representing the College's body of postdoctoral research fellows on one of the College's committees and taking on College officerships, where appropriate.
