In all cases, ability to perform the job will be the primary consideration. Subject to statutory provisions, no applicant or member of staff will be treated less favourably than another because of their age, sex, marital or civil partnership status, sexual orientation, religion or belief, racial group or disability.

The University is committed to equality and valuing diversity. Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
