section



Decree (1): Updating of
provisions governing the clinical duties of professors in
the Faculty of Clinical Medicine

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the
General Board and with concurrence on behalf of the
Clinical Medicine Board, updates the provisions governing
the clinical duties of professors in the Faculty of
Clinical Medicine, in particular by deleting a specific
reference to taking charge of beds and replacing it with
a general reference to clinical duties. A reference to
such duties being carried out in general practices as
well as in hospitals is also added.

Text of Decree (1)

In Ch. VII, Sect. I, § 5. B, PARTICULAR PROVISIONS
(Statutes, 1997, p. 388), delete cl. 3
(c) and substitute:

`(c) He or she shall, under conditions agreed
upon between the Board of the Faculty of Clinical
Medicine and the appropriate agents of the National
Health Service, perform such clinical, administrative,
and other duties in the hospitals or general practices
associated with the University as the faculty board may
determine or approve.'

Decree (2): Establishment of
Hans von Engel and Gordon Francis Fund

Explanatory note

Professor R.N. Franklin, CBE, Honorary Fellow of Keble
College, has offered a generous gift of £8,000 in
augmentation of the Gordon Francis Fund in order to endow
a biennial international prize in memory of Dr Hans von
Engel, sometime member of the Faculty of Physical
Sciences and Fellow of Keble College, for outstanding
contributions in the field of phenomena in ionised gases.
This accords with the existing objects of the Gordon
Francis Fund, and Council, on the recommendation of the
Physical Sciences Board, has made the following decree,
which accepts the benefaction and changes the title of
the Gordon Francis Fund in order to incorporate the name
of Dr von Engel. The intention is that the Physical
Sciences Board should delegate the award of the von Engel
Prize to the International Scientific Committee of the
Conference on Phenomena in Ionised Gases.

Text of Decree (2)

1 In Ch. IX, Sect. I
(Statutes, 1997, p. 638), delete § 108
and renumber existing §§ 109--11 (pp. 638--40)
as §§ 108--10.

2 Ibid. (p. 736), insert §
355:

`§ 355. von Engel and Francis Fund

1. The University accepts with gratitude the gift of
£8,000 donated by Professor R.N. Franklin, CBE,
Honorary Fellow of Keble College, which together with
moneys in the Gordon Francis Fund shall comprise the Hans
von Engel and Gordon Francis Fund.

2. The fund shall be used

(a) for the award, by such judges as the body
responsible for the administration of the fund may from
time to time approve, of a prize, to be known as the von
Engel Prize, to a person whom they consider to have made
an outstanding contribution to the study of phenomena in
ionised gases and plasma physics;

(b) to foster the study of phenomena in
ionised gases and plasma physics in the University by

(i) the award of a prize, to be known as the Gordon
Francis Prize, for meritorious performance in the M.Sc.
in the Science and Applications of Electric Plasmas;

(ii) encouraging travel in connection with their
research by members of the University doing research in
the field indicated;

(iii) for other purposes consistent with the promotion
of studies in this field.

3. Income not expended in any year shall be carried
forward for expenditure in subsequent years.

4. The administration of the fund shall be under the
direction of the Board of the Faculty of Physical
Sciences, which may delegate the responsibility to an
appropriate body.

5. Council shall have full power to alter this decree
from time to time, provided always that the purposes of
the fund, as stated in clause 2 above, shall be kept in
view.'

Decree (3): Time and exercises
required for the Degrees of BA, M.Biochem., M.Chem.,
M.Earth Sci., M.Eng., M.Math., and M.Phys.

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the
Senior Proctor and with the concurrence of the General
Board, deletes a confusing and unnecessary paragraph from
the existing decree concerning the time and exercises
required for undergraduate degrees awarded by the
University. The relevant provisions are made elsewhere in
Examination Decrees.

Decree (4): Changes in the
examination for the MBA

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the
Committee for the School of Management Studies and with
the concurrence of the General Board, amends the existing
provisions for examining the MBA course. At present these
require candidates who fail a course assignment or
assignments to resit all parts of the examination. In
future, a candidate's performance on the course
assignments will be taken into account by the examiners
in their overall assessment of his or her performance,
and only if the candidate fails the examination as a
consequence of unsatisfactory performance in the course
assignments will he or she be required to resit all parts
of the examination.

Text of Decree (4)

In Examination Decrees, 1997, p. 798, ll.
21--2, delete `, provided that candidates who fail the
course assignments must resit all parts of the
examination'.

Decree (5): Examiners in Honour
Moderations and the Preliminary Examination in Ancient
and Modern History

Explanatory note

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the
Literae Humaniores and Modern History Boards and with the
concurrence of the General Board, removes provision for a
moderator in Archaeology in Honour Moderations and the
Preliminary Examination in Ancient and Modern History.
This provision was introduced in 1996 as part of a scheme
to provide for a moderator/examiner in Archaeology in all
relevant examinations. In fact, however, there are no
Archaeology papers in Honour Moderations or the
Preliminary Examination in Ancient and Modern History:
this provision is therefore not needed, and is hereby
removed.

Text of Decree (5)

In Examination Decrees, 1997, p. 1039, l. 1,
delete `one in Archaeology,'.

Decree (6): Remission of
composition fees (K. Yamaguchi)

Notwithstanding the provisions of Ch. VIII, Sect. I,
§ 6, cl. 14 (Examination Decrees, 1997,
p. 1099), Mr K. Yamaguchi, St Edmund Hall, shall not be
required to pay composition fees for the academic year
1997--8.

Institutions and establish a new post of Nuffield
Professor of Comparative European Politics.

(1) WHEREAS it is expedient to establish a
Nuffield Professorship of Comparative European Politics,
THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS FOLLOWS.

In Tit. XIV, Sect. II, cl. l (Statutes,
1997, p. 111), after `Drummond Professorship of Political
Economy' insert:

`Nuffield Professorship of Comparative European
Politics'.

Decree to be made by Council if the Statute is
approved.

Statute (2): Increase in number of places for co-
opted members of the General Board

Explanatory note

At present the General Board may co-opt up to two
members. For some time the Board has been considering
whether this gives it sufficient flexibility. It has long
been the convention that one co-opted place is occupied
by the Chairman, and the existence of only one further
place is increasingly restrictive. At present that place
is filled by a member of the Faculty of Clinical
Medicine, the Board having agreed that the amount of
business involving that faculty and the complexity of the
issues involved make it particularly important for one of
its members to serve on the Board. In these circumstances
the Board has no further room for manoeuvre. For example,
it may wish (as in 1996) to co-opt a recent former member
of the Board as a future Chairman. In any case, the
general need for flexibility, against the growth in
difficulty and sensitivity of the Board's business, makes
it important to have available one further place which
can be used to meet particular needs as occasion demands.
The following statute therefore increases from two to
three the maximum number of members of Congregation whom
the Board may co-opt.

(2) WHEREAS it is expedient to increase from
two to three the maximum number of members whom the
General Board may co-opt, THE UNIVERSITY ENACTS AS
FOLLOWS.

In Tit. V, Sect. II, cl. 2 (Statutes, 1997,
p. 40), delete `two' and substitute `three'.

GUIDELINES FOR LEAVE FOR
ACADEMIC STAFF

The General Board's regulations in respect of sabbatical
leave and dispensation from CUF lecturing obligations are
set out in Ch. VII, Sect. I Statutes,
1997, pp. 384–6). Provisions for other leave are set
out in the same section (pp. 382–3). The following
guidelines describe the General Board's policy and
practice in respect of applications for leave which do
not fall within the category of straightforward
sabbatical leave or dispensation, i.e. special leave.

Applications for leave to hold some public offices or
certain research awards

(a) Applications for leave to accept an
appointment in the public service of national importance
are normally granted by the General Board, provided that
the purpose of the leave can be shown to be compatible
with the academic interests of the faculty, the faculty
board lends its support to the application, and it is
clear that the individual intends to return to university
service after the period of leave. Leave for this purpose
for heads of departments or professors can, however, be
problematic, for obvious reasons.

(b) Applications to national bodies for
prestigious and competitive research awards (such as
British Academy Research Readerships and Senior Research
Fellowships, EPSRC Senior or Advanced Fellowships and
Nuffield Foundation Social Science Research Fellowships)
should be made to the General Board through the faculty
board. It is usual for such national bodies to specify
that applications should be made through the employing
institution, and in Oxford's case this involves routing
the application via the faculty board to the General
Board. The University will normally support such
applications for prestigious awards, but it is necessary
for the faculty board and the General Board to consider
carefully what replacement teaching arrangements will be
required if an application is successful.

Leave granted under (a) and (b)
does not count against sabbatical entitlement: indeed the
rules of some research awards specifically forbid this.
However, as in other cases of special leave, the period
of leave does not count as qualifying service for the
purpose of calculating future entitlement to sabbatical
leave, and sabbatical leave is not normally granted in
the period immediately preceding or following periods of
such leave, although some flexibility may be exercised in
respect of periods of special leave not exceeding one
year, especially in connection with the holding of
research awards.

Return to List of Contents of this
section


Applications for leave for other purposes

All other applications for leave are initially considered
in terms of application for sabbatical leave, until
entitlement to sabbatical leave is exhausted. In other
words, if an individual applies for leave under this
section for any term which he or she would be entitled to
take as sabbatical leave, any leave granted for that term
will be granted as sabbatical leave. Such leave may also
be granted as sabbatical leave in advance of entitlement:
in other words, sabbatical leave will be granted for a
term which the applicant would not normally be entitled
to take as sabbatical leave, and leave for the term in
question will then be deemed to be taken in a later term
(normally not more than six terms later). In this way the
leave will count against an individual's sabbatical
entitlement: taking the individual's service as a whole,
the leave will not be in addition to the standard
sabbatical entitlement. For sabbatical leave to be
granted in advance of entitlement, an academic case must
be made by the faculty board to the Appointments
Committee of the General Board.

When sabbatical leave entitlement had been
exhausted, an application has to be considered in whole
or in part as one for special leave. In such cases,
faculty boards are required, when making recommendations
to the Appointments Committee of the General Board, to
specify whether, and if so how, the grant of such leave
would be in the academic interests of the faculty. Where
there is no statement of academic interest, or this
statement is not persuasive, special leave will not be
granted.

Applications for special leave cover many kinds of
situation. One would be an unrepeatable opportunity to
pursue academic interests where the applicant is
ineligible for sabbatical leave. In such a case it would
be necessary for the faculty board to demonstrate the
academic advantage (to the University rather than to the
individual) of the individual being able to accept the
opportunity, and for an explanation to be given of why
such an opportunity could not be taken up at a later
period when the applicant would be entitled to sabbatical
leave. Another situation where special leave might be
applied for would be where there was a need for fieldwork
for a period exceeding one year, which could therefore
not be accommodated within the sabbatical provisions. In
such a case it would be expected, as usual, that as much
of the leave as possible would be taken as sabbatical or
sabbatical in advance of entitlement, and the faculty
board would again need to demonstrate the academic
advantage to the University of the application's being
granted.

Very occasionally applications are made for leave
to enable someone to accept an appointment in another
academic institution (other than a routine visiting
appointment held during sabbatical leave). In such
instances, the faculty board would need to make an
extremely convincing case as to desirability of the
individual being offered reversionary rights to his or
her university post for any application to be successful.
Factors taken into account would include all relevant
circumstances relating to the individual's role within
the faculty and the consequences for the faculty, in
terms of the refilling of the post, if leave were not to
be granted and the individual were therefore to resign.
On this latter point, it should be noted, of course, that
if leave is granted and the individual subsequently
resigns during the period of leave or at the end of it,
the uncertainty about the long-term filling of the post
will have been exacerbated. The longer the appointment in
the other institution the less likely it is that leave
will be granted; leave will not be granted save in the
most exceptional circumstances to enable someone to
decide whether to accept a permanent appointment
elsewhere.

In each of the situations outlined above,
applications are considered on their academic merits, but
it is emphasised that the nature of special leave is that
it is granted exceptionally rather than automatically.
Advice on the likelihood of success of any application
can be obtained from the Secretary of Faculties or the
secretary of the Appointments Committee of the General
Board.

The General Board takes the view that academic
staff are specifically appointed to undertake both
teaching and research, and (although the Board would
support arrangements whereby teaching in excess of a
contracted or reasonable stint was relieved) an extremely
good case needs to be made in support of an application
for special leave which would have the result of the
individual's teaching being conducted mainly or wholly by
someone else. This is a especially true given that the
sabbatical leave scheme has been preserved intact
throughout retrenchment, so providing the opportunity for
individuals to concentrate on research in one term out of
every seven. Willingness to forgo university stipend or
the ease with which funding for a replacement appointment
may be attracted will not be sufficient to guarantee in
any way the success of an application for special leave.

It is emphasised that any application for leave,
including any application for funding which might result
in the need for leave from university duties to be
granted, must be made to the General Board through the
faculty board (and head of department, in departmentally
organised faculties). In every case the academic
advantage to the institution will be the general
criterion by which applications will be considered: in
every case the General Board requires details of any
necessary substitute arrangements, including those
relating to examining and graduate supervision.

It is recognised that some offers are made to
individuals at short notice. Given the fact that all
members of the academic staff have clear obligations to
the University under the terms of their contracts,
however, no such offer should be accepted without the
explicit approval of the General Board under the
procedures set out above: for this reason any prospect of
such an offer, however indefinite, must be discussed (in
strict confidence) with Dr Whiteley, secretary to the
Appointments Committee of the General Board, at the very
earliest opportunity. Delay in bringing to the attention
of the University the possibility that an offer may be
made will mean that if applications and substitute
arrangements then have to be considered at short notice,
this might compromise the chance of leave being granted.

section


Stipendiary arrangements

Leave granted under the above arrangements is normally
without university stipend, but the precise implications
for payment can vary. In some cases the leave is clearly
unpaid, such as when appointments in the public service
are held. In other cases, such as the holding of
prestigious research awards, the University is expected
to continue paying the individual, while the grant-giving
body provides support for the University to employ a
replacement: or the grant-giving body supplies a sum of
money which is equivalent to that paid by the University
under normal circumstances to the individual. Although
this is technically special leave without university
stipend, the University will continue to pay the stipend
to the individual through the payroll mechanism, being
reimbursed by the award-giving body. Special leave under
any other arrangement will mean the University will cease
to make payments of stipend and national insurance and
superannuation contributions. In general, except where
the rules of grant-giving bodies in respect of major
competitive awards specify otherwise, it is expected that
the normal result of the granting of an application for
special leave will be the release to the University of
the full salary and on-costs of the substantive
university appointment, which may be available, with the
agreement of the General Board, to the faculty board for
the making of any necessary replacement appointment. This
is particularly important given the University's practice
of advertising temporary university lecturerships, for
example, without cash-limited salary scales.

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.
