The Oxford Department of International Development (ODID), in association with St Antony’s College, is seeking to appoint an Associate Professor of International Human Rights and Refugee Law.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop courses and provide teaching to graduates, specifically, to teach international human rights and refugee law, supervise, and examine on the MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies; to contribute to the organisation of the Refugee Studies Centre; and to play a part in the administrative work of the Department and the College.

An Associate Professorship is the main academic career grade at Oxford with a focus on research and teaching, spanning the full range of professorial grades in the USA. Applications are welcome from both early career and established scholars with experience of inter-disciplinary working, in particular the ability to supervise graduate level work from across disciplines, in the broad area of refugee and forced migration studies. Applicants should have completed a doctorate in law or a closely related discipline with a strong emphasis on international human rights and/or refugee law, and should demonstrate an outstanding research and publication record and potential in international law, commensurate with stage of academic career.

The post will be held in conjunction with a Fellowship at St Antony’s College. The Associate Professor will be a Fellow of the College, and will be expected to take on a small number of College Advisees. From time to time, Fellows may also be asked to undertake specific administrative duties for which they would be separately remunerated. All Fellows are appointed as Trustees of the College and a full induction into your charity trustee role will be provided. Trustees are members of the College’s Governing Body which meets twice each term.
