Fellowship: The Scott Opler Fellowship in Architectural History

University of Oxford, Worcester College

Worcester College, Oxford is pleased to be able to offer a two year residential Fellowship in the study of Renaissance or Baroque architectural history through the generosity of the Scott Opler Foundation.

Applications are invited from scholars of any nationality and academic affiliation in the final year of their dissertation of their Ph.D., D.Phil. or comparable degree or within the first four years after the completion. Applicants are asked to demonstrate a high level of skill in research methods and practice in the field of Architectural History, demonstrated via successful completion or near completion of a doctorate in a relevant area, possibly supported by conference papers and publications revealing skills in research practice and presentation.

The person appointed will conduct high level academic research in Architectural History and prepare the results of that work of publication. Conference and seminar attendance may well form part of the programme of research. Topics may include any area or aspect of European architectural history during the Renaissance or Baroque era including urbanism, landscape and garden history, drawing and design method, theory and publication, architectural representation, as well as studies of architecture and related disciplines.

The Fellow is normally expected to work in Oxford, and to make use of the library resources of the University and the College, but visit to collections elsewhere may be necessary and are encouraged.  The Fellow will have access to certain travel, research and publication funds to aid this. 

For full details of the post, eligibility and the application process, please visit www.worc.ox.ac.uk/jobs.

Closing date for applications is 10am on Friday 3 November 2017. Interviews will be held in February 2018.
