We are interested in learning about the challenges of working as an academic at the University of Oxford.

You could be a postdoctoral researcher, junior or senior research fellow, lecturer, reader, associate professor or professor. You will be employed by the Collegiate University which includes the four academic divisions (Humanities, MPLS, Medical Sciences or Social Sciences), the Garden, Libraries and Museums (GLAM), and the Conference of Colleges (38 Colleges & Permanent Private Halls).

Hearing your views, experiences, and opinions will help us understand what training, support and attitudinal shifts the University can foster to promote a diverse academic community at Oxford. 

Participation entails signing a consent form, completing a demographic questionnaire, sending us a copy of your CV, and undertaking a confidential 1.5-hour interview in person or via Skype at a date and time that is convenient for you.

Interviews will be confidential and discuss the expectations you have from your career, and how your individual circumstances and work environments have affected your academic career progression at the University.
