We are currently inviting applications for two (non-stipendiary) Supernumerary Fellowships. It is anticipated that one Fellowship will be in the Humanities or Social Sciences, and one in Mathematics, Science, or Medicine. The Fellowships are intended for scholars who are working within the University of Oxford as a postdoctoral researcher (as an independent research fellow, PI, or equivalent) and who do not hold a permanent academic post.

As a Supernumerary Fellow, you will be welcomed into the Exeter community, and through our various events you will have the opportunity to engage with a broad range of other Fellows and lecturers, and our students, in many different disciplines.

The Fellowship will start on 1 September 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter, and will last for up to five years (non-renewable).


Supernumerary Fellows will hold an early-career independent research post either in the University of Oxford or in a research institute associated with the University, with an end-point at least twelve months from the date of taking up the Fellowship.  Such independent research posts include (but are not limited to) a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship, a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship, a Royal Society University Research Fellowship, a Henry Dale Fellowship, or a UKRI fellowship.

Supernumerary Fellowships cannot be held in conjunction with a similar Fellowship, or a Governing Body Fellowship, of another Oxford College.

To confirm, these Supernumerary Fellowships are not open to those who have yet to complete their doctoral study; all candidates must be working at a post-doctoral level.
