    MCDONNELL–PEW CENTRE FOR
    COGNITIVE
    NEUROSCIENCE


    Visiting Fellowship awards

    An award from the J.S. McDonnell Foundation, St Louis, USA, will continue to fund the
    Oxford McDonnell–Pew Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience until April 2003. The
    centre, which is closely integrated with the Medical Research Council Centre for Cognitive
    Neuroscience, links work on many aspects of brain research relevant to human cognition in
    several departments at Oxford and other institutions.

    The McDonnell–Pew Centre encourages work in all areas of cognitive neuroscience
    across all relevant disciplines and embraces research on experimental, theoretical, and clinical
    studies of perceptual analysis, memory, language, and motor control, including philosophical
    approaches to cognition. Current and fuller information on the centre is available at
    http://www.cogneuro.ox.ac.uk.

    The renewed centre offers several forms of support, including visiting fellowships for
    distinguished researchers from overseas or elsewhere in Britain who wish to work within the
    centre for periods between a week and several months. A modest grant may be provided to
    help with costs of travel and accommodation (but not salary or stipend), and to pay a bench
    fee to the host department.

    There is no application form. Applications should include the following information:

    name, address and status of applicant (in the form of a very brief curriculum
    vitae
    );

    names and addresses of collaborators in Oxford;

    a brief statement (up to 300 words) of the proposed research;

    a list of any publications that have already resulted from the research;

    an outline plan of visit/s and expenditure, with total estimated budget;

    other sources of funding and the amount requested.

    Applications can be submitted at any time (e-mail is acceptable), to
    Sally Harte, Administrative Secretary, McDonnell–Pew Centre for Cognitive
    Neuroscience, University Laboratory of Physiology, Parks Road,
    Oxford OX1 3PT (telephone: (2)72497, fax: (2)72488, e-mail:
    admin@cogneuro.ox.ac.uk).

    ASHMOLEAN (SACKLER) LIBRARY


    Opening arrangements for the Sackler Library

    Further to previous notices, the Library wishes to alert readers to its plans to move into the
    Sackler Library in the Long Vacation of 2001. A detailed timetable is currently being
    formulated in consultation with the appropriate committees.

    In principle it is anticipated that apart from complete closure of about a week
    (probably the last week in June), the Library will remain open with discrete sections of stock
    unavailable while being transferred over the course of the following five to six weeks. The
    move should be completed by mid August. Further updates and a more detailed timetable will
    be published as soon as possible on the Sackler Library Web site at

    http://www/saclib.ox.ac.uk/sackler.html
    .

    During the remaining construction period there may be occasional noise
    disturbance
    from the building site and times when it becomes necessary for health and safety reasons to
    close or partially close the library at short notice. The Library regrets any resulting
    inconvenience to readers and is taking all practicable measures to minimise disruption.

    at a critical stage in their work. The academic merit of
    candidates will be a primary consideration. Grants form the fund
    will not normally exceed the sum required for one term's
    maintenance.

    Hardship, and applications should be made on the Student Hardship

    LEVERHULME TRUST


    Leverhulme Major Research Fellowships
    2001

    The Leverhulme Trustees propose to offer up to twenty two- or
    three-year Major Research Fellowships in UK universities,
    designed to enable researchers to devote themselves to a single
    project of outstanding originality and significance. All fields
    in the humanities and social sciences are eligible.

    Each fellowship will normally be held for two or three years.
    The tenure of most fellowships will commence on 1 October 2002,
    but an earlier start date is possible. A later start date will
    be possible only in exceptional circumstances.

    Candidates holding an established post in the humanities or
    social sciences at a UK university, who have held a post in the
    UK for at least the past five years, are eligible. Candidates
    must be of an age to return to full-time academic posts for at
    least two years after holding a fellowship. Priority will be
    given to applications from candidates over the age of thirty-
    five.

    The support offered consists of the salary of a full-time
    replacement lecturer for two or three years at a grade not to
    exceed spinal point 8 (currently £20,465) on the RA1A scale,
    plus superannuation, national insurance, and London Allowance
    where applicable. An amount of up to £3,000 per annum will
    also be made available by the Trust to help meet the fellow's
    research expenses. Capital equipment, overheads, indirect costs,
    and bench fees are not eligible costs.

    Successful applicants will be expected to spend a minimum of
    80 per cent of their time on the project and no more than thirty
    hours in each month on other academic and professorial
    responsibilities. Universities must undertake to appoint a
    lecturer as stipulated above, and to grant research leave to
    fellows for the duration of the award.

    The closing date for applications is Friday, 4 May. Decisions
    will be made in November 2001.

    An application pack may be obtained from the Trust by sending
    a self-addressed A4 or A5 envelope stamped for 60g to the
    Leverhulme Trust, 1 Pemberton Row, London EC4A 3BG. No packs will
    be mailed out after Friday, 27 April. Application packs cannot
    be faxed or e-mailed to candidates. Details of the scheme are

    TIMOTHY BAILEY SCHOLARSHIP

    The Timothy Bailey Trust has been set up in memory of Timothy
    Bailey, a Biology graduate of Christ Church. It aims to provide
    financial support to students of Oxford University to assist them
    in undertaking any extra-curricular project or expedition
    relating to the Biological Sciences. Generally a single
    Scholarship will be awarded each year, on a competitive basis.

    Applicants should produce a written proposal of 500--1,000 words
    stating clearly: (a) the background to, and aims of, the
    activity; (b) how a successful outcome to the activity
    will contribute to our knowledge and understanding of any aspect
    of Biology; (c) detailed work plans for a successful
    outcome; (d) how, in the event of a successful
    application, the award will contribute to this outcome.

    Timothy Bailey was especially interested in Evolution, Entomology
    and Developmental Biology and applications in any or all of these
    areas are especially encouraged, although this is not an
    essential requirement.

    It is expected that applicants will normally be individuals,
    including those going on University Expeditions with others.
    Exceptionally expeditions may also be considered for joint
    funding although this is not preferred.

    Three copies of each application should be addressed as follows:
    the Timothy Bailey Scholarship, c/o Professor D. J. Rogers,
    Department of Zoology, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PS.

    Applications must be received on or before Friday of eighth week
    of Hilary Term (9 March) and decisions will be reached and
    communicated to the successful applicants by the end of first
    week of Trinity Term (27 April). Candidates who have not heard
    by the start of the second week of Trinity Term must assume they
    have been unsuccessful.

    Entries will be judged by the Trustees, whose decision is final.
    Currently the Trustees are Dr Mark Bailey, Mr Greg Payne, and
    Professor David Rogers. The Timothy Bailey Scholarships will be
    to a value of approximately £500. In the event of joint
    winners the Trustees will divide this sum between them.

    The winning applicant(s) will be expected to acknowledge the
    support of the Timothy Bailey Trust in any reports or scientific
    papers arising from any activity supported by the Trust. They
    should also provide a written report of no more than 2,000 words
    to the Trustees upon completion of the research and travel
    supported.

    Information regarding the life and interests of Timothy Bailey,
    plus further details on the Trust, can be found at
    www.timothybailey.com.

    It is hoped that this award can be made for a number of years
    into the future, depending upon the funds available to the
    Trustees.
