OXFORD INTERNET INSTITUTE

Visiting Fellows

RESEARCH STAFF GRADE IA: £18,265 to £27,339 (with a discretionary range 
up to £33,679)

Applications for up to six Visiting Research Fellowships for the 
academic years 2003/04 and 2004/05, or part thereof, are invited by the 
Oxford Internet Institute (OII), a new department in the University's 
Social Science Division which aims to become the world's leading 
multi-disciplinary academic centre focused on the societal implications 
of the Internet and related information and communication technologies 
(ICTs).

Established by the University in 2001 with initial funding of £15m, the 
OII's social research on the Internet and related ICTs seeks to help 
inform and influence the related debate that is shaping research, 
policy, and practice around the world. This is accomplished through 
high-quality research, collaboration, teaching, and use of the Internet 
as a strategic resource.

These Fellowships offer persons of outstanding distinction or promise an 
opportunity to pursue research related to the OII. Applications may be 
in any area related to the work of the OII, but should preferably 
address one of the Institute's five current research focal points. These 
concern the role of the Internet and ICT in: governance; learning and 
education; scientific and social research; everyday life and work; and 
policy issues that cut across all these social settings.

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, in the 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 Research Staff Grade IA range 
identified above (or pro rata for shorter appointments).

Further information, including details of how to apply, may be obtained 
from the Personnel Assistant, Oxford Internet Institute, 1 St Giles, 
Oxford OX1 3JS (tel: +44 (0) 1865 287210; e-mail: recruit at oii.ox.ac.uk) 
or from our website: http://www.oii.ox.ac.uk. Applications must reach 
the Institute by 12:00 noon (GMT) on Monday 16th December 2002.
