CSLS postdoctoral researchers awarded prestigious fellowships

The Centre for Socio-Legal Studies has been extremely successful in three national competitions to fund post-doctoral fellows.  Three candidates supported by the Centre In the 2022-2023 competitions run by the British Academy, Leverhulme Trust and Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) have been awarded grants to conduct research with us. 

Dr Joseph McAulay has received three years funding from the Leverhulme Trust to research conspiracy theories and the law.  Dr Francesca Uberti will be supported for three years by the British Academy to explore the related field of Law and Conspiracy in an information society.  Dr Natalie Kynswood has received a one-year post-doctoral award from the ESRC to examine the extension of pre-recorded cross examination to intimidated complainants in sex offence cases. On receiving news of all three awards Professor Linda Mulcahy, the Director of the Oxford Centre for Socio-Legal Studies said:

This has been a particularly successful year for us. The Centre has an established reputation for supporting early career scholars and mentoring them through the first few years of their academic career.  Each of these excellent candidates will join our thriving research community.  Post doctoral fellows sit at the heart of our interdisciplinary profile, bringing new ideas and energy to everything that we do.
