People

Our academic community of over 300 academics spans almost the entire disciplinary breadth of the University of Oxford. Scholars range in experience from our Experts, who include some of the most senior scholars in the University, to our Fellows, DPhil students, postdoctoral researchers and mid-career academics. Uniting our researchers are the qualities identified through the School’s four criteria: They all promote academic excellence; address issues of a global scale; ensure a real-world impact beyond academia, and work in innovative interdisciplinary ways.
