Early Career Opportunities

Research undertaken at Oxford University Museum of Natural History is highly diverse, ranging across palaeobiology, zoology and geosciences, to heritage, culture and society. We welcome approaches from postdoctoral researchers carrying out collections-based research in these areas who are interested in holding externally funded fellowships in the Museum.

We are happy to provide advice and support to applicants for independent research fellowships, including:

•    1851 Research Fellowships

•    BBSRC Discovery Fellowships
•    British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships
•    Human Frontier Science Program Postdoctoral Fellowships

If you are interested in applying for funding to work at the Museum, please contact: research@oum.ox.ac.uk

For applications for all funding schemes apart from Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships, a summary research proposal and CV should be provided at least four months in advance of the scheme submission deadline. For Leverhulme Trust proposals, an internal deadline will be advertised around May/June in order to allow time to apply internally for match funding.
