A stipend of £25,730 for the academic year is payable (pro rata if appointment is for only part of the academic year)
The University invites applications for the John G Winant Visiting Professorship of American Government. The Professor will be expected to contribute to teaching and lecturing in the field of American Government, and will contribute to the intellectual activity of the Rothermere American Institute (www.rai.ox.ac.uk). Teaching will normally take the form of seminars, directed primarily but not necessarily exclusively to graduate students, in the Rothermere American Institute itself. The Visiting Professor will be intellectually eminent in American government. Candidates will have an academic background (e.g. PhD and research experience) in American Government, political science, or similar related field of study.
The tenure of the Visiting Professor will be up to one academic year (1 October 2016 to 6 July 2017). He or she normally will be expected to give the equivalent of not fewer than 24 lectures or classes in the year. The Professor will also be expected to deliver one major public lecture, the Winant Lecture, preferably in the first term of his or her appointment.
The Professor will be a Supernumerary Visiting Fellow of Balliol College. A stipend is payable (£25,730 for the year, or pro rata if appointment is for only part of an academic year). This stipend is intended to be a supplement to the post holder’s current salary. In addition, some funds are available for travel expenses and for other expenses incurred in the course of the Professor’s duties.
Applications are to be made online.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 28 September 2016.
Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
