Exeter College (Oxford) proposes, if there is a suitable candidate, to appoint an Official Fellow and Lecturer in Medical Science (Neuropathology/ Neuroscience). The successful candidate will be an experienced tutor, who is familiar with the structure of the Oxford Medical and Biomedical Science degrees, and with the needs of undergraduates reading for them.

Applications are invited from existing holders of Departmental or University posts in Medicine who hold Associate Professor (non-Tutorial Fellowship) posts, or permanent research, or teaching and research, posts at Grades 9 or 10.

The main duties of the post are to undertake tutorial or class teaching of undergraduates of Exeter College up to a maximum of 144 ‘weighted’ hours per annum (i.e. six ‘weighted’ hours per week, averaged over the three eight-week Terms of the academic year).

In addition, the postholder will: engage in advanced study and research; set and mark College examinations; submit termly reports on students taught; provide pastoral care for students; assess and interview in the undergraduate admissions process, and share responsibility for College graduate admissions in Medicine and related subjects; undertake such duties as may reasonably be required to support the teaching of Medicine at the College; and participate in the governance of the College as a member of the Governing Body.

The Fellow will be expected to provide teaching in areas of the undergraduate syllabus which complement those taught by Dr Herring (who teaches Physiology and Pharmacology) and Professor Parrington (who teaches Biochemistry and Genetics).

In particular, candidates must be able to teach neuroscience for 1st BM Part 1 and 2, and for Biomedical Science Prelims, to Exeter undergraduates. Candidates will also be expected to contribute to neuroscience teaching for FHS (Part I, IIA and IIB for Biomedical Sciences) both for Exeter students and as part of the University wide tutorial matching scheme.

The successful candidate will have:

  • The proven ability, or the potential, to provide excellent tutorial and small group teaching in a range of undergraduate topics;
  • The ability to undertake pastoral responsibilities;
  • The ability to undertake College administration and duties, and to co-operate in the running of Medical Sciences in the College, and in College affairs more generally;
  • A research record of international standing, appropriate to the stage of the candidate’s career, with evidence of (and potential for) producing further distinguished research in Medical Science;
  • A relevant post in Oxford University’s Medical Sciences Division.


The salary for the Fellow will be considered in conjunction with the Medical Sciences Division, on the basis that the College will expect to set a salary within the normal range for the College side of an Associate Professor (TF – University) post. Currently this range is £19,582 – £22,363 per annum, inclusive of the College’s Housing Allowance.

In doing so, it is expected that the total remuneration of the Fellow, taking into account their College and University salaries, would not exceed the joint maximum for the main Associate Professor scale (Grade 10a), including the Housing Allowance.
