Join our Wadham community! Details of vacancies, both academic and non-academic are listed below.

Academic vacancies

Please follow the links below for jobs at Wadham and within the University of Oxford.

The College has been made aware that the recently advertised fixed-term Lecturership in History was mistakenly posted on as a full-time job. The College has never considered it as such, and apologises for this error. 

The post is part-time in nature, and we have requested that the advert be amended to reflect this. This contrasts, for example, with a 12 hour lecturer post in Philosophy, which is advertised correctly as full-time and commands a higher wage. In both positions the teaching duties outlined in the further particulars largely fall within the 24 weeks of the full Oxford term, although it is a twelve-month position with the stipend paid throughout this period.

Achieving IiP provides recognition for the College’s good practice in people management and development. The award demonstrates the importance we place on staff engagement, quality people management and work towards for continuous improvement. IiP assessment includes face to face interviews with a representative sample of staff chosen by an external assessor.
