HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL 7 June


1 Decrees

Council has made the following decrees, to come into effect on 25
June.

List of the decrees:


Decree (1): Jane Willis Kirkaldy Prize

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Committee for
the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology and with the
concurrence of the General Board, amends the terms of the Jane Willis
Kirkaldy Prize, for an essay on a topic concerning the History of
Science or Technology, to allow for a Senior Prize to be awarded
alongside the Junior Prize when funds permit, and for proxime
accessit awards to be made when appropriate in each case. It also
devolves to the committee certain powers concerning the prizes, for
example the authorisation of use of the prize money on things other
than books and the approval of the expenses of the examination for
the prize, previously retained by the General Board. The definition
of eligibility for the Junior Prize is amended to allow for the new
four-year degree courses in this area, and for students who might
have had to suspend their status for a period of time.

undergraduate degree of the University, provided that the Junior
Prize shall not be awarded a second time to the same person, nor
shall a person who has been awarded the Junior Prize receive on any
subsequent occasion a proxime accessit award to the Junior Prize. A
person who has received a proxime accessit award to the Junior Prize
may, however, be awarded the Junior Prize for a different piece of
work on a subsequent occasion.

6. In the event of there being surplus income, it shall be
applied in the first instance to the award of a second prize, to be
known as the Jane Willis Kirkaldy Senior Prize. If funds permit, the
Senior Prize shall be offered for competition annually on an essay
written upon a topic concerning the History of Science and Technology
proposed by the candidate and approved by the committee. The
committee may also award a proxime accessit prize. The Senior Prize
shall be open to all members of the University who are registered as
students for the degree of M.Sc., M.Litt., M.St., M.Phil., or D.Phil.
in the University and who are not eligible to enter for the Junior
Prize. The Senior Prize shall not be awarded a second time to the
same person, nor shall a piece of work submitted at any time for the
Junior Prize be submitted at the same time or subsequently for the
Senior Prize, nor shall a person who has been awarded the Senior
Prize receive on any subsequent occasion a proxime accessit award to
the Senior Prize. A person who has received a proxime accessit award
to the Senior Prize may, however, be awarded the Senior Prize for a
different piece of work on a subsequent occasion. In the event that
there is any further surplus income, it shall be applied, at the
discretion of the General Board, to any purpose connected with the
History of Science which the General Board may approve.'

    Notice is given that there will be an election, on Monday, 19 July 1999, of four

    RULES COMMITTEE


    Amendments to Regulations

    At its meeting in Hilary Term 1999 the Rules Committee reviewed its
    current Regulations as required under Title XIII of the Statutes. The
    Committee agreed to introduce a number of amendments effective from 1
    October 1999 and authorised its Chairman, the Senior Proctor, to
    finalise the drafting of the amendments on its behalf.

    The amendments are intended to take into account: the enactment on 14
    April 1999 of the revised Title XIII of Statutes
    (Gazette, Supplement (1) to No. 4473, 13 May 1998, pp.
    1193--8), which now incorporates harassment as a specific offence and
    abolishes the distinction between `University' and `other' offences;
    new arrangements for the registration of sports clubs, in line with
    recommendations arising from the Review of Sport; perceived needs to
    relax the restrictions on the times when students from graduate
    colleges may row on the river during term and to strengthen the
    enforcement of regulations governing safety on the river. The
    amendments to Clause 1 set out below are contingent on approval being
    given to relevant recommendations arising from the Review of Sport;
    if such approval is not forthcoming before the end of Trinity Full
    Term 1999, the existing Regulations will remain in force until
    further notice.

    Delete Decree XI, Section VIII (Statutes, 1997, pp.
    783--8) and substitute the following with effect from 1 October 1999.
    (Amendments to current Regulations are indicated in bold face.)

    bank account, building society account or other financial affairs.

    (iii) In exceptional circumstances, at the request of a non-sports
    club, the Proctors shall have discretion to dispense from the
    requirements of any of sub-clauses (i) (e), (f),
    (g), (h), (i), (j), (l),

    Sports Department ex officio, who shall be formally
    responsible for the affairs of each recognised sports club;

    (f) unless designated by the Proctors to be a `recognised
    sport' in accordance with (d) above, present to the

    BRITISH ACADEMY RESEARCH READERSHIPS, BRITISH
    ACADEMY/LEVERHULME TRUST SENIOR RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS, AND BRITISH
    ACADEMY THANK-OFFERING TO BRITAIN FELLOWSHIP IN THE HUMANITIES AND
    SOCIAL SCIENCES

    The British Academy has announced that, under its scheme for Research
    Readerships, it intends to confer on `serving members of academic staff' the
    title of British Academy Research Reader. There will be up to thirteen awards
    tenable for two years from 1 October 2000. The Readerships will be awarded
    on a competitive basis and are not renewable.

    In addition, the academy has announced that, under the scheme for Senior
    Research Fellowships it intends to confer, again on members of academic staff,
    the title of British Academy/Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellow. Under
    this scheme there will be up to eight awards as well as one Thank-Offering
    to Britain Fellowship, tenable from 1 October 2000, of one year's duration.

    Applicants will need to submit a programme of research for the Research
    Readerships and Senior Research Fellowships in any field of study within the
    humanities or social sciences. Appropriate subjects for the award of the
    Thank-Offering to Britain Fellowship will be related to Human Studies widely
    interpreted and their bearing upon the well-being of the inhabitants of the
    United Kingdom.

    All award-holders are relieved of all teaching and administrative duties, but
    may engage in limited supervision of research students.

    While they hold the relevant Academy title, award-holders of Research
    Readerships and Senior Research Fellowships and the Thank-Offering to
    Britain Fellowship will continue to receive their normal stipend, and their
    employing institutions will be expected to provide them with all the facilities
    necessary to enable them to carry out their research programme. Under the
    Research Readership scheme, the academy will meet the cost of substitute
    teaching in a form to be agreed up to a maximum sum equivalent to the sixth
    point of the current national Lecturer A scale (£17,570) in year one, and
    the seventh point (£18,275) in year two; under the Senior Research
    Fellowship and Thank-Offering to Britain schemes the academy will meet the
    agreed costs of substitute teaching up to the sixth point on the university
    lecturer scale. Detailed arrangements in any particular case will have to be
    considered by the University and the college concerned, and in consultation
    with the academy, once it is known that the application is successful.

    Candidates must be of an age to complete the award and return to teaching
    afterwards to disseminate the results of their research. Candidates are
    normally therefore expected to be aged under 55 on 1 October 2000, unless
    they can demonstrate that exceptional circumstances have delayed the
    advancement of their academic career. Applications from candidates under the
    age of 35 are discouraged. Applicants are not discouraged from applying for
    the Research Readerships and the Senior Research Fellowships simultaneously,
    but in such cases two sets of separate and fully self-contained applications
    should be submitted, with the research project in each case tailored to the
    duration of the award.

    Applications under all schemes should be submitted through the University
    or through the college (for CUF lecturers). All applicants must, however,
    obtain the support of the Faculty Board and the General Board (and, for those
    holding joint appointments, the college concerned). The University will advise
    the academy separately of its support for an application by a CUF lecturer.

    Further details and application forms in respect of the schemes are available
    from the appropriate faculty board secretaries, to whom applications should
    be returned as soon as possible, or direct from the British Academy (Web site
    http://www.britac.ac.uk/guide/randf/html #Research
    Readerships, Senior Research Fellowships; telephone: 0171-969 5265; e-mail:
    kene@britac.ac.uk). The academy's closing date for the receipt of applications
    is 31 July 1999.

    LEVERHULME TRUST MAJOR RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS
    2000–1

    The Leverhulme Trust has announced a round of up to twenty three-year
    Major Research Fellowships in the humanities and social sciences to commence
    on 1 october 2000 or earlier.

    Applications are invited from individuals holding an established academic post
    in the humanities and social sciences at a UK university who have held a post
    in the UK for at least the past five years. Applicants must be of an age to
    return to full-time academic posts for at least two years after holding a
    fellowship and priority will be given to applicants over the age of thirty-five.

    Award-holders will continue to receive their normal stipend for the duration
    of the award, and their employing institution will be expected to provide them
    with all the facilities necessary to enable them to carry out their research
    programme. The Leverhulme Trust will meet the salary costs of a full-time
    replacement lecturer at a grade not exceeding spinal point 8 on the RA1A scale
    (currently £19,197). Up to £5,000 per annum will also be available to
    help meet the fellow's research expenses.

    Award-holders will be expected to spend at least 80 per cent of their time on
    the specified project.

    Applications should be submitted through the University (or through the
    college for CUF lecturers). All applicants must, however, obtain the support
    of the faculty board and the General Board (and the college for those holding
    joint appointments). The University will advise the Leverhulme Trust
    separately of its support for an application by a CUF lecturer.

    Further details of the scheme are available from faculty board secretaries, or
    direct from the Leverhulme Trust (Web site: http://www.leverhulme.org.uk).
    Application packs must be obtained direct from the Leverhulme Trust by
    sending a self-addressed C5 envelope stamped for 60 grammes to: the
    Leverhulme Trust, 1 Pemberton Row, London EC4A 3BG. No packs will be mailed
    out after Friday, 23 July. Packs cannot be faxed or e-mailed. The closing date
    for receipt of applications by the Leverhulme Trust is Friday, 30 July, and
    applications should be forwarded to the relevant faculty board secretary as
    soon as possible.
