Global Justice Research Fellowship in association with the Oxford Transitional Justice Research Network
The Governing Body of St Anne's College invites applications for the Global Justice Research Fellowship tenable from 1 October 2011. Applications will be considered from graduates or equivalent, women or men, in their second or subsequent year of doctoral research. Candidates registered for doctorates at other universities are eligible. Those candidates who have not completed their doctorate or equivalent, should provide evidence that they are likely to be in a position to submit their thesis within the first year of the Fellowship. The Research Fellow will have completed, or be close to completing, a PhD in Law, Politics, International Relations, Development Studies, Area Studies or another relevant discipline. The Fellow will have expertise in the broad field of transitional justice, which concerns the processes and institutions employed by societies in transition following large-scale human rights violations such as mass conflict and/or repressive rule.
The Fellowship is on a fixed-term contract and is offered for one year in the first instance, and may be renewed for a second and third year provided that Governing Body is satisfied that the Fellow is fulfilling the academic and other requirements of the Fellowship. The purpose of the Fellowship is primarily to foster research but it is expected that the Fellow will undertake 3 hours of teaching for the College per week.
The Fellow's principal duties will be to: Conduct individual research into transitional justice issues and publish monographs, peer-reviewed journal articles and chapters in edited volumes; act as convenor of Oxford Transitional Justice Research (OTJR), (which entails managing the OTJR executive committee and overseeing the general work of OTJR, including events, working papers and policy projects); collaborate on joint projects with the Global Institute for the Crime of Aggression (possibly in the form of joint event organisation, in consultation with Don Ferencz, Director of the Institute); contribute fully to the life of St Anne's College, including the delivery of academic seminars and acting as a College Adviser to graduate students.
The maximum salary of the Fellowship, including 3 hours of teaching per week, will be £20,282 but this figure will be reduced to take account of any award or grant already held by or promised to the successful applicant. Free accommodation (bed-sitting room) will be offered if available and required; otherwise a living-out allowance of £3,415 pa (subject to review) will be paid. The Fellow will be a member of the Senior Common Room, and will be entitled to all meals free during term, and breakfast and one main meal a day during vacation, except when the hall is closed. Applicants must be able to demonstrate eligibility to work in the UK.
Applications should reach the PA to the Senior Tutor, St Anne's College, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6HS, by Tuesday 12th July 2011.
