Grade 8: £39,324 - £46,924 p.a.
The Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation is a leading independent, interdisciplinary research centre that undertakes a broad research programme related to business taxation, including the impact of taxes on firm behaviour and the welfare effects of such behaviour, and the design of taxation and fiscal policy.
The centre is seeking an outstanding researcher in law. The research fellow will be expected to carry out independent, high-quality academic research into business taxation under the guidance of the centre’s Director and other senior staff. Research output should primarily be aimed at leading peer-reviewed academic journals; however, researchers are also expected to contribute to policy-related output. The postholder will contribute to the teaching on the MSc in taxation degree programme. The fellow will be expected to lead significant research projects and to make a significant contribution to research grant applications.
You will probably have or be working towards a PhD, but highly experienced or differently qualified individuals in a relevant area will also be considered.
You must also be capable of, and be enthusiastic about, contributing to the centre in a variety of ways, including engaging in policy debate with government, business representatives and the media, and raising grant income.
