Keeley Visiting Fellowship

Wadham College proposes to elect one or more distinguished visitors to Oxford to Visiting Fellowships for all or part of the academic year 2018-19. The Fellowships, which are for scholars who will already have full financial support, are intended to provide the visitors with a social and academic base where they can meet academics with a broader range of interests than might otherwise be likely within a single faculty or department. It is expected that the Fellows will be based in Oxford for the period of the Fellowships and will actively contribute to the academic and social life of the College.

The Visiting Fellows will be members of the College’s Senior Common Room and will be entitled to lunch and dinner free of charge at Common Table. Accommodation is not provided. The Fellowships are open to persons undertaking academic research in any subject.

Nominations are invited from faculties or departments, and from individual senior members of the University. The nomination letter should demonstrate a clear, mutual, benefit to the candidate and the College from the association.

Applications for the Keely Visiting Fellowship will be judged against the criteria set out below:
·        Intellectual distinction
·        An interesting and credible research project

Applications should be sent by email to by noon on Friday 19 February 2018.  These should include a curriculum vitae, a list of key publications and a brief statement by the candidate of the work to be pursued in Oxford. These must be supported by a letter of recommendation from the nominator and by two other references from outside Oxford, and applicants should ensure that all references are sent to by the deadline.

Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.

Enquiries can be directed to the Warden’s Executive Assistant at
