Associate Professorships

Associate Professorships are joint appointments associated with a tutorial fellowship at a college, Associate Professors have teaching, supervisory and research responsibilities both there and in the Department. 

Applications are invited from both experienced and less experienced researchers who have completed or will be close to completion of a doctorate by September 2023.
