Application Process

Unless stated otherwise all applications for our vacancies are made on line through the University of Oxford jobs website and only in very exceptional circumstances can we receive applications via other means. If you have a disability or other compelling reason that prevents you submitting an application on line please email our recruitment team at for advice.

Due to the additional work it creates and in fairness to other applicants, we are unable to accept late applications, so please make sure you are aware of the application deadline and submit yours in plenty of time. All posts close promptly at noon on the closing date (and remember to allow for technical hitches!)

Please follow the link in the posted advert to see further particulars and to apply. As part of your application, you will be required to upload the documents below:

1. A Curriculum Vitae, (for most posts, but not required for posts at grades 1-5 as a fuller on-line application form is completed)

2. A letter of application/supporting statement.

If you are applying for a research post and you have had periods of working part-time, please indicate this on your CV or in your supporting statement. This will ensure that any outputs such as publications are fairly judged when considered alongside the expected outputs of full-time workers.

Where posts are advertised full-time, we may be able to consider part-time working or job share arrangements depending on the requirements of the role. If you want to work part-time and this option is not expressly stated in the advert or job information, please email to enquire whether the role you are applying for might be available on a part-time basis.

Sometimes emails from us may be caught in spam filters. If you are waiting to hear from us about an application please monitor your junk email folder. We contact all candidates to let them know the outcome whether they are shortlisted for interview or not.

Please be aware that for some positions we receive a high volume of applications and, although we do try to give feedback to unsuccessful candidates when requested, we are not always able to give individual feedback to applicants who are not shortlisted for interview. We shortlist candidates based on the selection criteria that you will find in the job description document.
