    McDONNELL--PEW CENTRE FOR COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE

    An award from the McDonnell--Pew Program in Cognitive Neuroscience, based in the United States of America, has funded the establishment of a Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience at the University. It started in 1990 and is currently funded until
    the end of 1997. The centre 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.

    The centre offers several forms of support:

    • Research fellowships and graduate studentships, which are separately advertised from time time;
    • Visiting fellowships, to contribute to the costs of short-term visits from distinguished researchers from overseas;
    • Seminar programme;
    • Workshops, for the planning of collaborative research;
    • Network grants, to cover the costs of exchange visits for collaboration with laboratories elsewhere in the world, especially in Europe and North America;
    • Research support fund, providing small grants for pilot projects, experience in new techniques, including functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, etc.;
    • Travel fund, especially for costs of visits to other laboratories or to training courses to learn new techniques.

    Anyone wishing to join the mailing list of the centre should contact Harriet Fishman, Administrative Secretary, McDonnell--Pew Secretariat, University Laboratory of Physiology, Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PT (telephone: Oxford (2)72497, e-mail: cogneuro@physiol.ox.ac.uk).

    SCHOLARSHIPS FOR STUDY IN GERMANY

    Michael Foster Memorial Scholarship

    Applications are invited from members of the University for the Michael Foster Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship is tenable for ten months from 1 October 1997 at any university, technical university, or art or music academy (at the choice
    of the successful candidate) in Germany, and may be extended at the discretion of the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst. The successful candidate must undertake research or other academic work in a field of his or her own choice.

    The scholar will receive a monthly maintenance grant and remission of university or institution fees and dues (but he or she will have to pay a compulsory Student's Union fee). A small grant will be paid at the beginning of the award period to
    cover incidental expenses and the scholar will be entitled to a small book grant each term. An additional grant will be paid to assist with travel expenses. A scholar who is married before taking up the award will receive an additional allowance,
    if accompanied by his or her partner. The scholarship is not tenable concurrently with any other travelling award. It should be noted that the scholarship does not include payment of any Oxford fees for which the scholar may be liable while
    he or she is in Germany. Candidates who hold British Academy studentships may however apply for suspension of their awards and suspension of status to enable them to take up the scholarship if elected.

    Candidates for the scholarship must be British subjects and members of the University who will not have attained the age of thirty-two years by 1 October 1997, and either (a) will have completed all the examinations required for the Oxford
    BA Degree, or (b) have embarked on a course of postgraduate study at the University. Candidates will normally be expected to show a reasonable proficiency in the use of German language, but if a candidate does not have a good knowledge
    of German a further grant may be made available to enable him or her to attend a language course in Germany before university entrance there. Candidates' proposed programmes of research must be such that they can best be carried out at a German
    university or other institution of higher learning.

    Applications must be received by the Secretary to the Board of Management, Michael Foster Memorial Scholarship, International Office, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD. The closing date for applications has been extended to 28 February 1997. Applications
    must include:

     

    (i) the applicant's age;

     

    (ii) a brief statement of his or her academic career;

     

    (iii) a brief programme of the work he or she proposes to undertake, the institution at which he or she would wish to study in Germany, the reasons for the choice of institution, and some evidence that he or she has made contact with the head
    of the chosen institution;

     

    (iv) a certificate from the head of his or her society that the application is made with the approval of the society and that the applicant is a British subject;

     

    (v) the names of two academic referees. It is the candidate's responsibility to ensure that references reach the Secretary by the closing date.

     

    Note: If applying for the Theodor Heuss Fellowship as well as the Foster Scholarship, one application will suffice.


    Hanseatic Scholarships

    These scholarships have been established by the generosity of the Alfred Toepfer FVS (Freiherr vom Stein/Friedrich von Schiller) Foundation which wishes to reciprocate the Rhodes Scholarships to Oxford from Germany. The aim of the Foundation
    is to promote closer Anglo- German links within a European context. At present two scholarships are offered each year.

    Candidates must be British subjects, unmarried, and graduate or undergraduate (final year) members of Oxford University. They should not have passed their twenty-eighth birthday by 1 October 1997, the date by which the scholars elected in 1997
    will be expected to take up their scholarships. These are tenable preferably for two years for study at Hamburg University; exceptionally, the second year may be spent at another academic institition in Germany. The successful candidate must
    undertake research at doctoral or postdoctoral level or give evidence of a workable project not connected to a research degree. There is the opportunity to obtain a German degree.

    The value of the scholarships is currently DM 24,000 per annum and is subject to regular review. Sufficient knowledge of the German language is desirable, but when a candidate does not have a good knowledge of German, he or she is expected to
    attend a language course in Germany prior to university entry.

    Applications should be sent to the Secretary, Hanseatic Scholarships, International Office, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD (from whom further particulars may be obtained). The closing date for applications has been extended to 28 February 1997. The
    applications should include (i) the applicant's full name and age; (ii) a photograph of the applicant; (iii) a curriculum vitae; (iv) a programme of the work which the candidate proposes to undertake; (v) the names of two
    referees; (vi) a certificate from the head of the candidate's society that the application is made with the approval of the college and that the applicant is a British citizen; (vii) a health certificate. It is the candidate's responsibility
    to ensure that references reach the Secretary by the closing date.


    Theodor Heuss Research Fellowship

    Applications are invited from members of the University for the Theodor Heuss Research Fellowship. The Fellowship, which is financed through the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung out of a gift from the late President of the Federal Republic of
    Germany, is tenable for the twelve months of the academic year 1997–8 at any university or other institution of higher learning (at the choice of the successful candidate) in Germany, and may be extended for a second year at the discretion of
    the Stiftung.

    The Fellowship is especially intended for research in the following subjects: Ancient History and Literature, Modern History, Modern Languages and Literature, English Literature, Oriental Studies, Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. Applications
    from other academic fields will, however, be welcomed.

    The holder of the Fellowship will receive a monthly maintenance grant (currently DM 3,200). In addition payments are provided to cover travel expenses, and all university or institute fees will be paid on the Fellow's behalf (but he or she will
    have to pay a compulsory Students' Union fee). Upon application a monthly marriage allowance may also be paid. It should be noted that the fellowship does not include the payment of any Oxford fees for which the Fellow
    may be liable while he or she is in Germany. Candidates who hold British Academy Studentships may however apply for suspension of their awards and suspension of status to enable them to take the Fellowship if elected.

    Candidates for the Fellowship must be British subjects and members of the University who will not have attained the age of thirty-two years by 1 October 1997, and either (a) have embarked on a course of postgraduate
    study at the University or (b) have already obtained a postgraduate qualification of the University. Candidates will normally be expected to show a reasonable proficiency in the use of German language, but if
    a candidate does not have a good knowledge of German a further grant may be made available to enable him or her to attend a language course in Germany before university entrance there. Candidates' proposed programmes of research must be such
    that they can best be carried out at a German university or other institution of higher learning.

    Applications must be received by the Secretary to the Board of Management, Theodor Heuss Fellowship, International Office, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD. The closing date for applications has been extended to 28 February 1997.

    Applications must include:

     

    (i) the applicant's age;

     

    (ii) a brief statement of his or her academic career;

     

    (iii) a brief programme of the work he or she proposes to undertake, the institution at which he or she would wish to study in Germany, the reasons for the choice of institution, and some evidence that he or she has made contact with the head

    Mansfield College

    Stipendiary Lecturership in Modern History

    Mansfield College wishes to appoint a Stipendiary Lecturer in Modern History from 1 October 1997. The person appointed will be required to teach six hours per week for papers in modern British and European history since 1850. The appointment
    will be until September 1998, with the possibility of renewal thereafter. The lecturer will be a member of the senior common room and have use of a teaching room in college.

    Further particulars are available from the College Secretary, Mansfield College, Oxford OX1 3TF (telephone: Oxford (2)70982, fax: (2)70970).

    Applicants should send a curriculum vitae in triplicate to the College Secretary, and at the same time ask two referees to write, by the closing date, direct to the College Secretary. The closing date is 10 March.


    St Antony's College

    Appointment of Bursar

    The college seeks a Bursar to serve as its chief administrative officer, with particular responsibility for financial management, and hopes to make an appointment at an early date.

    The position would be attractive to a mature man or woman of proven ability in management who wishes to accept a new challenge in a postgraduate college of international character. The Bursar is a fellow of the college and a member of its governing
    body, and is responsible to the governing body for the overall administration of the college. The post is full-time, with support provided by a Domestic Bursar, Accountant, and College Secretary. Remuneration corresponds to academic salary
    scales and is currently set at £31,357 per annum, plus certain benefits and allowances.

    For further particulars, apply to the Warden's Secretary, St Antony's College, Oxford OX2 6JF (telephone: Oxford (2)84717, fax: 512323). The closing date for applications is 5 March.


    St Edmund Hall

    Junior Research Fellowship in Molecular Aspects of Biology

    The college proposes to elect into a stipendiary William R. Miller Junior Research Fellowship in the field of Molecular Aspects of Biology (including biological chemistry, pharmacology, and molecular aspects of physiology).

    The fellowship will be tenable for three years from 1 October 1997 and is open to men and women. The note of further particulars may be obtained from the Principal's Secretary, St Edmund Hall, Oxford OX1 4AR. Applications
    should arrive not later than Friday, 7 March.


    St Peter's College

    Appointment of Fellows' Secretary

    The college wishes to appoint a Secretary to provide general secretarial and clerical support to the fellows of the college and to work as part of a small administrative team. Good typing and word-processing skills are essential; shorthand would
    be an advantage.

    The salary is linked to the university clerical and library staff grade 3 (£10,276–£11,895, with discretionary increments to £12,989). Five weeks' holiday plus bank holidays; free lunches.

    Written applications with a curriculum vitae should be sent to the Assistant to the Bursar, St Peter's College, Oxford OX1 2DL, by 24 February.


    Wolfson College

    Wolfson/Harwell Industrial Fellowships 1997–9

    Wolfson College proposes to make elections (if suitable candidates are proposed) to two two-year Wolfson/Harwell Industrial Fellowships for the academic years 1997–9. These fellowships are intended to enable those working at Harwell or in industry
    to come to Oxford to engage in a joint research project with a university department. Preference for one fellowship will be given to a suitably qualified candidate nominated by Harwell.

    The intention is that the fellowships should give an opportunity for collaborative research which would not otherwise have taken place, but the college is prepared to receive proposals in respect of already established research projects.

    Proposers will be expected to negotiate an agreement with the company by whom the candidate is employed, under which the company would continue to pay his or her full salary but would permit him or her to spend one-fifth of his/her time on a joint
    research project in Oxford. The college is willing to consider a variation from this pattern to suit current conditions or individual circumstances.

    Wolfson College will offer up to £1,000 per annum towards any expense reasonably incurred in pursuance of the aims of the fellowship.

    Applications, marked on the envelope `WHIF', should include a completed application form, a curriculum vitae of the candidate, and the names of two referees, and should be sent to the President's Secretary, Wolfson College,
    Oxford OX2 6UD (telephone: Oxford (2)74102, fax: (2)74136, e-mail: sue.hales@wolfson.ox.ac.uk), by the closing date of 24 March. All enquiries should be directed to the President's Secretary, from whom application forms may be obtained.

    Candidates should themselves write directly to their referees asking them without further request to send a confidential reference to the President's Secretary by the closing date (marked `WHIF' on the envelope).

    Successful candidates will be notified not earlier than mid-May.
