Oxford University Museum of Natural History is seeking expressions of interest from potential applicants applying for externally funded research fellowships in the academic year 2022-23 to base their work in the Museum and become part of the research team here. The Museum will support the development of these applications, which have deadlines between January and February 2023. We ask that potential applicants send us a one-page summary of their planned research by the end of September, including details of how they will undertake specimen-based research and make use of Museum facilities, together with a CV with up to five best publications highlighted.
