Applications are invited for the Glasstone Research Fellowship, tenable at the University of Oxford in the field of Engineering Science and aligned with one of the research themes of the Department of Engineering Science. The research activities of the department fall under eight broad headings, though there is much overlap in practice: Information Engineering (Robotics, Computer Vision and Machine Learning); Control Engineering; Thermofluids; Materials and Mechanics; Civil and Offshore; Electrical and Optoelectronic; Chemical and Process Engineering; Biomedical Engineering.


This prestigious post is a three-year postdoctoral fellowship and is supported by the Glasstone Bequest, which was set up to encourage scientists at an early stage of their career to follow their research interests at Oxford, one of the world’s leading science universities. Preference will be given to candidates who are at an early stage in their research career and who have not already held an independent fellowship.


Applications are especially welcome from women and minority ethnic candidates, who are underrepresented in academic posts at Oxford.


The fellowship will allow successful applicants the opportunity to conduct original research in the engineering fields listed above. Interdisciplinary applications are welcome, but the main research approach(es) being proposed should fall within the scope of work of one or more of the eligible themes.  Applicants should identify existing faculty in the Department of Engineering Science who can act as internal sponsors. It is expected that the Fellowship would be hosted in the sponsor’s research group. 

  • The University is committed to recruiting and retaining the best people, whoever they are, to ensure equality of opportunity. The Vice Chancellor’s Diversity Fund provides resources for innovative projects to promote diversity.

    The Equality and Diversity Unit promotes good practice across the University by developing policies and offering training, and runs a range of support networks for staff. It works closely with Colleges, the Oxford University Student Union and external campaign groups.
