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.


  •  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.
  • Applicants must be able to demonstrate eligibility to work in the UK.


The maximum salary of the Fellowship, including 3 hours of teaching per week, will be £20,282 pa 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 £3,630 pa 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.


  • Candidates are asked to submit 6 typewritten copies (on standard A4 paper) of both a curriculum vitae and a statement (not more than 500 words) setting out the candidate’s research interests along with the Appointing Committee’s form.
  •  Candidates are also asked to provide the names and addresses of two referees who are acquainted with their academic work and career.
  • Candidates are advised that a personal interview will be essential for those shortlisted. The interview date will be before the end of November. Reimbursement of reasonable travel expenses will be considered.
