Applications are invited for a Junior Research Fellowship in Japanese Studies, to be held from 1 October 2014 for two years in the first instance, and renewable for a further year. The successful candidate will be expected to undertake a programme of research at post-doctoral level and will be required to make an annual report. Candidates are expected to be proficient in using Japanese sources, but there is no restriction as to the field of research within Japanese Studies. The holding of a doctorate is not a prerequisite, although the committee anticipates that plausible candidates will at least be close to finishing their PhD studies. Preference will be given to those who have not previously held a JRF at an Oxford or Cambridge College, and to those who have not been appointed to a tenured post in a university.
The Fellow will be a member of the Governing Body and charity trustee of the College and will hold the Fellowship under the terms of the Statutes and Bye-Laws in force for the time being. The stipend will be on the University’s Grade 6 scale, starting at GBP 26,527 pa.. The Fellow will have the right to lunch and dinner free of charge when kitchens are open, and will be offered the use of a work-room, though this may possibly be shared. A research allowance of up to 1,000 per annum will also be offered. Single accommodation in College would be available with a reduction in stipend of (currently) GBP 3,065.
