Oxford Sociology invites Expressions of Interest (EOIs) to participate in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Fellowships Scheme 2023.

MSCA Fellowships are highly flexible funding schemes offered to experienced researchers with a minimum of PhD level experience who move to be based at the hosting institution, where they will work with their supervisors to deliver a specific project involving research, innovation, training and networking activities. The funding guarantees mobility and financial independence with a generous set of allowances.

Sociology at Oxford has a strong analytical, empirical and comparative orientation with a focus on developing and testing theories that engage with real world problems. Our strengths include statistical analysis of social surveys, social demography, collection management and analysis of complex datasets, the development of rational choice theory, microsocial experiments and simulation studies. 

We would be happy to host European Fellows whose research profile falls or overlaps with the following research areas:

  • Social inequalities of gender, class, and ethnicity (including mobility, labour market and social class inequalities);
  • Families, population, and demography;
  • Health and wellbeing;
  • Crime, justice and governance;
  • Social movements and political sociology;
  • Digital Societies, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence.

If you are interested in applying for the scheme with the Department please fill in the application form

Please also read the Guidance for Applicants and FAQ documents on the funders’ website and the eligibility criteria

Proposals are joint submissions between the Fellow and their host Department and named Supervisor (Sponsor). It's expected that the collaborative relationship between the applicant and their Sponsor would have already been established. 

The call for EOI applications with Oxford Sociology closes at 5pm on 27th June 2023. 

The overall call for MSCA applications closes on 13th September 2023. If you want to apply with us you will need to complete the EOI form by 27th June. Selected candidates will then be contacted and invited to submit their applications developed to the ‘final draft’ by 27th July. Full applications will be required by the Sociology Department internal deadline on 29th August 2023.
