Young naturalists

Join Natural History Investigators

We're now open for this years' application for 'Natural History Investigators' (suitable for key stage 4 students). Investigators interested in the natural world have an opportunity to pursue an extended project of their choice. Investigators meet on Saturdays from 10.30am to 12.30pm for ten weeks. Investigators have access to special Museum objects and experts in the field. Investigators can submit their work for a British Science Association CREST award. For more information about the next course and an application form contact education@oum.ox.ac.uk


Early career opportunities

We welcome approaches from postdoctoral researchers carrying out collections-based research in these areas who are interested in holding externally funded fellowships in the Museum. For applications for Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships in 2020, we ask that potential applicants send us a one-page summary of their planned research, including details of how they will make use of collections and other facilities at the Museum, together with a CV with up to five best publications highlighted by 30th June 2019.
