Teaching and Research
Keble College has launched a new and prestigious programme of Visiting Fellowships. The first Fellows have been appointed for 2020, coinciding with the 150th anniversary of the College’s foundation. The application process will re-open in spring 2020 for fellowships to be held in 2021.
The Fellows, who will have already demonstrated a high level of achievement appropriate to their fields of research or public life and to their stage of career, may stay at Keble for periods of between three and twelve months. During this time they will be entitled to membership of the Senior Common Room, accommodation in a two-room apartment in The H B Allen Centre, and meals. They will also receive an honorarium and a contribution to travel costs.
In return, Visiting Fellows will participate in the intellectual life of the College and the University through, for example public lectures, seminars and workshops. There is no pre-determined requirement, and the College is open to ideas about how the Fellows may make a contribution; it is not anticipated that the contribution will be onerous. The Fellows will be encouraged to engage with the College’s academics, graduates and undergraduates, with a particular emphasis on including non-specialists. The accent will be on the sharing of ideas across boundaries, whether they be between disciplines or, more generally, between academia and other fields of public life, including business. With the arrival of the offices of Oxford Sciences Innovation at our new H B Allen Centre, the College is interested in exploring the connections between academia – particularly research – and entrepreneurship or innovation.
The Fellowships are aimed not just at current academics, but also at individuals in public life – including the arts, business and government – who are in a position to take advantage of the opportunities offered by an Oxford college, and who can add something distinctive to its academic life.
Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
The closing date for the first round of applications has passed, but we intend to consider new applications early in 2020. Inquiries about the Visiting Fellowships can be made to the Senior Tutor, Dr Alisdair Rogers (email@example.com).
