Sociology Visitorships

The Nuffield College Sociology Group invites applications for a Visitorship at the College in the 2023/24 academic year. The scheme is open to established academics and others who wish to pursue their research in Oxford in the field of Sociology, broadly defined to include Sociology, Social Policy, and Demography.

The Visitorship normally lasts between one and six months (longer visits may be considered). It does not carry a stipend, but accommodation in a College guestroom (suitable for an individual or a couple) and meals are provided, along with library privileges and access to Nuffield IT facilities.

The deadline for applications to be considered for visits in the academic year 2023 to 2024 is 30 September 2022. Applications should be sent to They should include a CV and an outline (maximum 2 pages) of the research to be pursued during the Visitorship.

Informal inquiries can be made of the chair of the Sociology group, Richard Breen ( or any of the College’s Sociology Group Professorial Fellows or Official Fellows.
