The Governing Body of Christ Church proposes to elect a Junior Research Fellow in Greek Mythology, on a fixed term basis for three years. The current salary is £23,754 per annum plus accommodation allowance of £10,000 per annum or single College accommodation (subject to availability and the outcome of our current accommodation policy review).

The position is fixed-term for 3 years, to start from 1st July 2020, or, subject to agreement if this is not possible, from 1st October 2020.

The primary duty of the successful appointee will be to engage full-time in independent research and its dissemination into any aspect of ancient Greek mythology or in its reception (e.g. in fields such as Literature, Ancient History, Archaeology, History of Art, Music, and Philosophy). They will be expected to propose, plan and manage a high-quality programme of original research; publicise the outcomes of that research through presentation of papers and publications; and engage in the life and activities of the College. There may be an opportunity to undertake a limited amount of teaching for relevant undergraduate degree programmes.

The successful candidate will be approaching the end of doctoral research in the field of Greek Mythology or have submitted a doctorate in the field after 1 October 2018.
