This post, based at The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH), will play a key role in the administration and organisation of activity related to the project ‘Humanities and Identities’, and in particular to the successful delivery of the Andrew W Mellon funded strands of the series. The post is part-time at 0.6 FTE and fixed-term for 1 year.

The post has particular responsibility for the ‘Global South’ visiting professorships and fellowships initiative; the two Knowledge Exchange fellowships; and the planned state-of-the-art discussions and colloquia sessions focussing on curriculum review. The role will enable and sustain the important collaboration with Mellon, as well as with Humanities scholars at institutions in the Global South, and will consolidate the exciting opportunities for international and interdisciplinary exchange that these links make possible. The position will involve extensive planning, organisation, facilitation and outreach, including media and publicity work, as well as college and faculty liaison.

You will need good people skills at all levels, including donors, senior academic leaders and administrative staff, along with the ability to work under pressure, and to juggle competing deadlines. Accuracy, attention to detail and a readiness to contribute to the overall success of TORCH is essential.

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Victoria McGuinness, TORCH Business Manager (
