Oxplore: Home of the Big Questions

Logo for Oxplore

An opportunity has arisen to assist in the review of digital learning resources for the Oxplore project

Oxplore is an innovative new digital outreach portal from the University of Oxford. As the ‘Home of Big Questions’ it aims to engage those from 11 to 18 years with debates and ideas that go beyond what is covered in school. Big questions tackle complex ideas across a wide range of subjects and draw on the latest research undertaken at Oxford.  In providing this resource and targeting it to those currently underrepresented at the university, Oxford aims to raise aspirations, promote broad thinking and stimulate intellectual curiosity.

We are looking for early career researchers who have the time to review resources to establish that they are factually correct and demonstrate academic rigour expected from the University of Oxford. You would be expected to give 8 hours of your time across a month to review resources. This time may be split at your convenience into two 4 hour blocks or three 2-3 hour blocks. You would be paid £14 p/h.

We are looking for those from the following disciplines:

Humanities

• English

• History

• Classics

• Theology

• Philosophy

Social Sciences

• Sociology

• Law

• Archaeology

• Politics and International Relations

• Economics

• Geography

A CV is not required. Individuals will be assigned on a best fit and first come first served basis.
