George Eastman Visiting Professor

The University invites expressions of interest in the George Eastman Visiting Professorship in the academic years 2021-22 and 2022-23 from citizens or permanent residents of the United States, in a branch of academic study within the Social Sciences Division or the Maths, Physics and Life Sciences (MPLS) Division. Like previous holders of this distinguished chair, the new visiting professor will be eminent in teaching and/or research.

Information about the constituent units of the Social Sciences Division and the Maths, Physics and Life Sciences (MPLS) Division at Oxford may be found at: ?" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"> .

The Visiting Professor is normally resident in Oxford for one academic year and is required to deliver a minimum of one public lecture and an academic programme agreed in advance with the host department or faculty of the University. In parallel with holding the chair, the Professor will be elected to a Professorial Fellowship at Balliol College. Suitable housing is provided rent-free. A professorial stipend is payable for the year, and the University meets the reasonable cost of the Professor’s return air fare from the United States.

Candidates will be asked to seek nomination by another individual through one of the constituent units of the relevant Oxford division, and to supply a CV/list of publications and the names of three referees. The closing date for nominations is Monday 16 September 2019.

Enquiries should be addressed to Sue Morris: professorships [at] admin[.]ox[.] .

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