GENERAL PURPOSES COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL

Decrees

The General Purposes Committee of Council has made the following decrees, to come into effect on 26 July.

Decree (1): Changes in the composition of the Area and Development Studies Committee

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the General Purposes Committee of Council, on the recommendation of the Social Sciences Board, changes the composition of the Area and Development Studies Committee. The Area and Development Studies Committee was established in March 2001. At the time, it was agreed that `the committee shall have power to co-opt up to three additional members, who shall reflect, in particular, the interests of St Antony's College, the Life and Environmental Sciences Division, and the Humanities Division'. The committee now wishes to have the option to co-opt up to three further members, while still retaining the representation of interests as detailed above, since it has proved difficult to reflect the full range of interests within the current membership. At the same time, opportunity is taken to correct the titles of two of the constituent units.

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Ch. III, Sect. VI, cl. 2 (Statutes, 2000, p. 261, as inserted by Decree (1) of 8 March 2001 and subsequently renumbered by Decree (4) of 11 October 2001, Gazette, Vol. 131, p. 716; Vol. 132, p. 188), delete `Latin American Studies' and substitute `Latin American Centre'.

2 Ibid., delete `Slavonic and East European Studies' and substitute `Russian and East European Studies'.

3 Ibid., delete `up to three additional members' and substitute `up to six additional members'.

Decree (3): Changes in the arrangements for the Saïd Business School

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the General Purposes Committee of Council, on the recommendation of the Social Sciences Board and with the consent of the Trustees of the Saïd Business School Foundation, places with the Executive Committee of the Saïd Business School the responsibility for the appointment of Directors of the school. It also recognises that specific provision no longer needs to be made to require the school to contribute to the cost of central services. This is now achieved for the school, as for all other academic units, through the infrastructure charge in the Resource Allocation Method.

Text of Decree (3)

1 In Ch. III, Sect. LII, § 1 (Statutes, 2000, p. 311, as renumbered by Decree (4) of 11 October 2001, Gazette, p. 188), delete cl. 14 and renumber existing cll.15–18 (pp. 311–12) as cll. 14–17.

4 Ibid., § 2 (p. 312, as amended by Decree (1) of 26 July 2001, Gazette, Vol. 131, p. 1354), delete cl. 4.

Decree (4): Beit and Herbert Memorial Prizes

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the General Purposes Committee of Council, on the recommendation of the Board of Management for the Beit Fund, revises the criteria for eligibility for the Beit and Robert Herbert Memorial Prizes in Imperial and Commonwealth History so that only current students, or those who satisfied the requirements for their decree not more than twelve months before the entry date, may become candidates. Amendment is required only to the decree governing the Beit Prize, because the decree governing the Herbert Memorial Prize provides that it shall be open to the same persons as are eligible for the Beit Prize.

Text of Decree (4)

In Ch. IX, Sect. I, § 19, cl. 1 (Statutes, 2000, p. 593), delete `It shall be open ... from their matriculation' and substitute `It shall be open to members of the University who, on the closing date for entries for the prize, are either student members or have been ordinary or Convocation members for not more than twelve months before that date'.

COUNCIL OF THE UNIVERSITY

Decree

Council has made the following decree, to come into effect on 26 July.

Decree (5): Repeal of obsolete Decrees and redesignation of certain other Decrees as Regulations under the new University Statutes

Explanatory note

The new University Statutes will come into effect on 1 October 2002. Under those statutes Council will no longer make decrees to enact secondary legislation, and all such legislation will take the form of regulations. Council has already enacted new regulations to replace certain Examination Decrees (Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4621, 8 May 2002, p. 1139), the decree concerning Intellectual Property Policy (Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4625, 5 June 2002, p. 1285), and the statutes and decrees concerning Convocation, the Societies and Permanent Private Halls, Council, the Divisions, Faculties, the University Press, University Officers, etc. (Supplement (2) to Gazette No. 4628, 26 June 2002, p. 1385). Council has now made further regulations to replace the existing legislation concerning the Student Union, retirement dates for university employees, the College Contributions Scheme and College Accounts, and departments. These are published as Council Regulations 26–30 of 2002 in Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4629, 10 July 2002, p. 1449.

Clause 1 of the following decree repeals the existing decree concerning the Bodleian Library, which will be superseded by new Regulations for the Oxford University Library Services to be published in two weeks' time. Clause 2 takes the opportunity formally to repeal an obsolete decree which has been previously overlooked, following the discharge of the Committee on the History of the University.

Because it has not been possible in the time available to complete the review of all existing university legislation before the new Statutes come into effect, it is necessary to redesignate as regulations from 1 October 2002 those decrees which have still to be considered. Council has already made a decree so redesignating certain parts of the Examination Decrees (Decree (2) of 9 May 2002, Gazette, p. 1154), and clauses 3 and 4 of the following decree correspondingly redesignate further legislation of this kind (primarily Ch. III of the existing decrees, concerning `other university bodies', Ch. VII, concerning academic and other posts, and Ch. IX, concerning trust funds).

Text of Decree (5)

1 In Ch. III (Statutes, 2000, p. 269), delete Sect. XIII, concerning the Bodleian Library.

2 Ibid. (p. 305), delete Sect. XLVI, concerning the Committee on the History of the University. 3 The following decrees shall constitute the corresponding regulations governing the matters concerned with effect from 1 October 2002 unless and until they are replaced, amended, or repealed by new regulation made by Council (or by another body or a person authorised by Council):

MATHEMATICAL AND PHYSICAL SCIENCES BOARD

Decree

The Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board, with the approval of the Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council, has made the following decree, to come into effect on 26 July.

Decree (7): Establishment of new Preliminary Examinations in Earth Sciences and Materials Science

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board, with the approval of the Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council, provides for the establishment of new Preliminary Examinations in Earth Sciences and in Materials Science, with effect from 1 October 2002. Previously these two subjects, along with Chemistry and Physics, formed part of the Preliminary Examination in certain Physical Sciences, which was created to facilitate the sharing of papers between these subjects in the first year. This scheme of shared papers no longer operates in practice, and earlier this year decrees were made to create separate Preliminary Examinations in Chemistry and Physics. The present change completes the dismantling of the Preliminary Examination in certain Physical Sciences, which is hereby abolished.

Associated changes in regulations are set out in `Examinations and Boards' below.

Text of Decree (7)

1 In Examination Decrees, 2001, p. 72, after l. 8 insert:

`Preliminary Examination in Earth Sciences

1. The subject of the Preliminary Examination in Earth Sciences shall be Earth Sciences, including basic practical and mathematical techniques.

2. The number of papers and other general requirements of the examination shall be as prescribed by regulation from time to time by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board.'

2 Ibid., p. 80, after l. 47 insert:

`Preliminary Examination in Materials Science

1. The subject of the Preliminary Examination in Materials Science shall be Materials Science, including basic practical and mathematical techniques.

2. The number of papers and other general requirements of the examination shall be as prescribed by regulation from time to time by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board.'

3 Ibid., delete from p. 98, l. 26 to p. 99, l. 7 (as amended by Decree (7) of 25 April 2002, Gazette, p. 1046).

4 This decree shall be effective from 1 October 2002.

MATHEMATICAL AND PHYSICAL SCIENCES BOARD AND HUMANITIES BOARD

Decree

The Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board and the Humanities Board, with the approval of the Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council, have made the following decree, to come into effect on 26 July.

Decree (8): Honour School of Natural Science (Physics), Honour School of Physics and Philosophy, Honour School of Natural Science (Chemistry)

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Board and the Humanities Board, with the approval of the Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council, corrects the date of effect of the repeal of existing legislation governing the Honour School of Natural Science (Physics), the Honour School of Physics and Philosophy, and the Honour School of Natural Science (Chemistry). Changes in decrees and regulations published in April provided for a new Honour School of Physics, and for changes in the Honour School of Physics and Philosophy, with effect from 1 October 2002, and for changes in the Honour School of Natural Science (Chemistry) with effect from 1 October 2003. Inadvertently, the existing legislation was repealed from the same dates, whereas it should be retained until those who embarked on those Honour Schools in earlier years have completed their courses; there will be a period of overlap during which these candidates complete their studies under the existing legislation and new candidates embark on the revised courses. The following decree reinstates the existing legislation for the period concerned.

Corrections to the associated regulations are set out in `Examinations and Boards' below.

Text of Decree (8)

1 Notwithstanding the provisions of clause 11 of Decree (8) and clause 3 of Decree (11) of 25 April 2002 (Gazette, pp. 1046, 1048), candidates embarking on the Honour School of Natural Science (Physics) and the Honour School of Physics and Philosophy in or before October 2001 shall be examined under the terms of the decrees as they stood at 30 September 2002 and as published as an addendum to Examination Regulations, 2002 (subject to any changes which may subsequently be made to that legislation).

2 Notwithstanding the provisions of clause 12 of Decree (9) of 25 April 2002 (p. 1047), candidates embarking on the Honour School of Natural Science (Chemistry) in or before October 2002 shall be examined under the terms of the decrees as they stood at 30 September 2002 and as published in Examination Regulations, 2002 (subject to any changes which may subsequently be made to that legislation).

Volunteers Need for Type II Diabetes Study

Would you be willing to assist with a clinical study aimed at type II diabetes (not insulin dependent)? We are looking to see if heart and/or skeletal muscle are damaged by diabetes and, if so, can treatment help. We need people with type II diabetes for a study at the John Radcliffe Hospital. The study would involve 2 visits to the hospital each lasting about 3–4 hours. All tests will be non-invasive, painless and without any risk or side effects. We would reimburse expenses for refreshments and travel or we could organise transport. For further details please phone Dr Scheuermann-Freestone, Magnetic Resonance Unit, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford OX3 9DU, or e-mail: mscheuer@bioch.ox.ac.uk.

The Research Staff Society (RSS) membership consists of Post- doctoral/Junior Research Fellows and Research Assistants who work for the University of Oxford. As most Research Staff are not attached to a college and may be new to Oxford our social events provide a unique opportunity to meet researchers outside your group or department. We aim to provide an interesting and varying social setting in which to mix and to become a voice for research staff within the University. We run social events each month to suit all tastes. Please visit our Web site http://users.ox.ac.uk/~rss/, which provides information on how to join the society as well as details on events which we will be running in the near future. We hope you will decide to join us and very much look forward to meeting you at one of our events this year.

ALL SOULS COLLEGE

 

Five-year Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships

1. The college intends to make an election to not more than two Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships on Saturday, 1 March 2003. Candidates in the following subjects may apply: Law, History, Philosophy, Economics, Politics, Language and Literature, Classical Studies, Oriental Studies, and Mathematical and Theoretical Sciences. (All these subjects will be broadly interpreted: for example, `History' includes the archaeology of prehistoric as well as of historic times; `Classical Studies' includes all aspects of the study of classical antiquity.) At the end of the tenure of five years the fellowships cannot be extended. As the fellowship is for a fixed term a successful applicant will be required to sign a waiver under Section 197 of the Employment Rights Act 1996.

2. Applicants must have been awarded, or be an advanced candidate for, a doctoral degree at any university. Applicants must be expecting to have completed the requirements for their doctoral degree by 1 October 2003. The purpose of the Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship is to enable junior scholars of the highest calibre to undertake further research, and to enhance their academic standing by substantial publication. In making an election the college will be guided by its judgement as to how far the candidate's achievements and prospects will meet the aims of the fellowship, and it anticipates that candidates will not normally be older than thirty. The college is an equal opportunity employer, and consideration will be given to applications submitted by candidates who can demonstrate that the application of this age-limit would be inappropriate in their circumstances.

3. The fellowship is open to men and women. If there are no candidates for the fellowships whom the college judges to be of sufficient merit, the college is not bound to make any election.

4. Application for the fellowship should be made in writing to the Warden on an application form (obtainable from the Warden's Secretary) on or before Friday, 6 September 2002. Applicants are required to submit with their applications: (i) a curriculum vitae; (ii) a thesis abstract; (iii) written work in English of around 10,000 words to serve as evidence of their prowess as researchers (this should be a published paper, an extract from the thesis, or equivalent); (iv) a statement (of not more than 1,000 words) of their proposed course of future research work (candidates' attention is drawn to the importance which the college attaches of submission of a clear and comprehensive research proposal); (v) the names and addresses of two referees who have agreed to give a confidential assessment of the candidate's work. These referees must be asked by the candidate to send their assessments direct to the Warden by 6 September 2002. Candidates who are placed on the `long' short-list will be requested to supply two copies of their thesis.

5. There will be a viva voce examination of selected candidates in the presence of fellows of the college on Saturday, 22 February 2003.

6. If the fellow undertakes a certain amount of lecturing, the fellowship carries a stipend at age twenty-six of £16,580* per annum rising to £26,123* per annum at age thirty-five and above. If not, the stipend is £15,088* per annum rising to £23,772* per annum.

7. A Post-Doctoral Research Fellow will be a member of the governing body and will be entitled to rooms, dinners, and lunches without charge, and a housing allowance for those living out of college in Oxford which is at present £4,075 per annum.

The primary duty of a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow is to pursue a programme of advanced study and research in Oxford, approved by the college and at a level of achievement acceptable to it. Leave of absence to work away from Oxford may be granted on the recommendation of the college's Academic Purposes Committee, where the Committee is satisfied that such leave is necessary for the pursuit of the fellow's programme of research.

The successful candidates will be expected to take up the fellowship on 1 October 2003, or such other date as may be agreed.

8. For fellows with young children there is the possibility of places being available on a paying basis at the University Nursery.

9. Inquiries about the fellowship may be made to the Warden's Secretary, All Souls College, Oxford OX1 4AL (telephone: Oxford (2)79300). See also the college's Web site: http://www.all-souls.ox.ac.uk.

*Reviewed each August.

 


 

Election to Fellowships by Examination

1. There will be an election at All Souls on Saturday, 2 November 2002 to not more than two Fellowships by Examination, if candidates of sufficient merit present themselves.

2. The examination is open to any candidate (male or female) who either
( a) has passed all the examinations required by the University for the degree of BA or
( b) has been duly registered for, or been awarded, a higher degree in the University (including BCL). The college will not normally admit to the Examination, however, candidates who will have passed their twenty-sixth birthday at the time of election, or who will then have completed ten or more terms since they qualified for the degree of BA, or first registered for a higher degree in the University. Candidates who are short-listed may be required to verify their date of birth.

3. The fellowships are for seven years and cannot be extended. They are open to those who intend to pursue an academic career, and the college pays the university fees of fellows registered for a higher degree. They are also open to those who, while intending to take up non-academic work (such as the practice of the law, politics, diplomacy, etc.), nevertheless wish to maintain and strengthen their links with academic life. In the case of the latter category it is possible for those pursuing a non- academic career to comply with the college's residential convention in the first year of fellowship by, for example, spending the weekends during term in college and the weekdays working in London.

4. During the first two years fellows receive a stipend, which they may supplement, of £11,205 per annum, and may be eligible for a housing allowance of £3,559. At the end of that period the fellowship will (with the approval of the college) be extended for a further five years, during which
( a) a fellow who decides to take up or continue non-academic work will receive a stipend of £2,161* per annum;
( b) a fellow who decides to take up or continue academic work will receive a stipend of £15,511* per annum, rising to £19,764* per annum if a certain amount of lecturing is undertaken; otherwise the stipend will be £14,115* per annum rising to £17,985* per annum, plus in each case a housing allowance of £4,075 per annum, if eligible.

Academic Fellows may also draw on academic allowances of up to £2,041 per annum. As the fellowships are for fixed terms, the successful applicants will be required to sign a waiver under Section 197 of the Employment Rights Act 1996.

5. A Fellow by Examination will be a member of the governing body and will be entitled to rooms, dinners, and lunches without charge. A fellow is conventionally required to reside (or dine) in college for at least twenty-eight days in each academical term of the first year of tenure; but the college is prepared to consider deferment of this residence in exceptional cases.

6. Prospective candidates should apply to the Warden's Secretary for an application form and further particulars, including a statement of the college's policy on equality of treatment of candidates. See also the college's Web site: http://www.all-souls.ox.ac.uk. Completed forms together with a curriculum vitae should be sent to the Warden not later than 6 September 2002. Candidates must enclose with their application form a letter from the candidate's college—from the Head of House or Senior Tutor—certifying that the applicant is a suitable candidate to sit the Examination. Candidates who wish to be admitted to the Examination notwithstanding non-compliance with the rules as to age and standing should communicate with the Warden. All correspondence should be marked `Fellowship Examination'.

7. The Warden and Chairman of Assistant Examiners will meet candidates, whose applications have been accepted, on Wednesday, 25 September at 4 p.m. and will answer any queries raised by them.

8. The examination will be held in the college hall, starting on 26 September at 9.30 a.m. and ending on 28 September at 12.30 p.m. (except for candidates who take the Classical Studies papers—see para.10 below).

9. The examination will consist of five papers of three hours each:

Two papers in Law, History,** Philosophy, Economics, Politics, English Literature, or Classical Studies;**

Two General Papers;

An Essay.

10. Candidates who take the Classical Studies papers will be required to take a Translation paper at 2 p.m. on Saturday, 28 September. Specimen papers from previous years may be seen in college on application to the Warden's Secretary or Fellows' Secretary.

11. A viva of short-listed candidates will be held in the presence of fellows of the college on Saturday, 26 October, commencing at 10 a.m. All short-listed candidates will be expected to dine in college that night.

* Reviewed each August.

** The History papers will cover: I—political, constitutional, and ecclesiastical history; and II—social, economic, and cultural history. Each paper will contain a section of questions on History of the Ancient World. The two papers on Classical Studies will contain questions on Ancient History and Classical Literature.

PEMBROKE COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE

 

Keith Sykes Research Fellowship in Italian Studies

Pembroke College welcomes applications from scholars with interests in any aspect of Italian culture from the age of Dante to the present: relevant disciplines may include Italian language and literature, music, history, and art history. Candidates may be men or women and should have recently completed, or be about to complete, a doctoral degree. The tenure of the fellowship will be for five years. The holder will be encouraged to do a limited amount of teaching for the college, but would require the permission of the governing body to undertake other paid work. The stipend will be in the range of £16,624, adjusted to account for any increases between now and 1 October 2003. Depending on whether the successful candidate chooses to live in or out of college, he or she will be provided with a set of rooms or a study and, if still a registered Graduate Student, substantial assistance towards payment of college and university fees.

Applications (two copies) should reach the Senior Tutor's Secretary, Pembroke College, Cambridge CB2 1RF, by midday on 6 September, and should include the following information:
( a) the usual particulars, and a short account of the applicant's academic record and career so far, including a note of any other appointments for which applications are being made;
( b) an explanation of the nature of the applicant's research in about 1,000 words of non-technical language, together with a statement of published and unpublished work (the work itself should be available to the electors by mid-October but should not be sent until requested);
( c) the names of two persons well acquainted with the applicant personally and academically who have agreed to write in support of the application.

Applications should only be made on forms obtainable from the Senior Tutor's Secretary, Pembroke College, Cambridge CB2 1RF (e-mail: pat.whitby@pem.cam.ac.uk), and online at http://www.pem.cam.ac.uk/jobs.
