Visiting Fellows

RESEARCH STAFF GRADE IA: £17,451 to £26,229 (with a discretionary range up to £32,215)

The University has recently established the Oxford Internet Institute (OII). With initial funding of £15m, this new department in the Social Science Division aims to grow rapidly to become the world's leading independent centre of excellence in academic research on the impact of the Internet on society. The OII also expects to make a significant contribution to the development of public policy towards the Internet.

The Oxford Internet Institute invites applications for up to three Visiting Research Fellowships for the academic year 2002/2003, or part thereof. Applications will also be considered for periods starting in the present academic year.

These Fellowships are intended to offer persons of outstanding distinction or promise an opportunity to pursue research related to the concerns of the OII. Applications may be in any area related to the work of the OII, but, for the time being, preference will be given to research in one or more of the following areas: public broadband, education and the Net, e-democracy, e-governance (both the governance of the Internet and the governance of other organisations using the new technology), and the evolution of standards. 

Fellows will normally be expected to reside in or near Oxford for the majority of their visit. They will be entitled to office space at the OII, which is located at 1 St Giles, at the very heart of Oxford and to participate fully in the intellectual life of the OII and the wider University. They will be expected to cooperate with the work plans of the OII under the guidance of the Director. Salary will be in the range above (or pro rata for shorter appointments).

Applications should include: (a) a letter explaining why you are interested and qualified for one of these positions; (b) a statement, on not more than 2-3 sides of A4, setting out the research you will undertake during the Fellowship; (c) a full curriculum vitae; and (d) the names and of two referees (at least one of whom should be academic). Applicants are requested to arrange for their references to be sent direct to the OII by the closing date.
