Postdoctoral Fellowships

We encourage excellent graduate students and academics to think of coming to Oxford as the premier destination of choice for a research fellowship or sabbatical in New Testament and early Christian studies.

Each year we invite expressions of interest for several major international fellowship schemes, including the British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships (BA PDF), Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships (ECF) and Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships (MSCA IF). Shortlisted candidates receive extensive support with their final applications from Oxford’s Research Support team.

Fellowships Beginning in 2021

The Faculty of Theology & Religion’s internal deadlines and application details are as below. Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. Bockmuehl informally in advance.
