Job Details and Application

Working at the University of Oxford Mindfulness Centre provides an opportunity to work in a world-class University Centre committed to preventing depression and enabling people to realise their potential through mindfulness training. We do this through rigorous scientific research and working to maximise the impact of our work. Our impact work includes training the next generation of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) teachers, making MBCT more accessible, improving understanding of mindfulness and MBCT and policy/advocacy work. Our vision is a world without the devastating effects of depression. Our values include embodying mindfulness and compassion in all that we do, internally and externally; ‘practicing the change we would like to see in the world.’

We try where possible to make posts open to part-time and/or job-share arrangements to support flexible and part-time working, with a commensurate adjustment in the responsibilities and duties on a pro rata basis.
