PLANNING AND RESOURCE ALLOCATION
COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL

Decrees

The Planning and Resource Allocation Committee of Council has made the following
decrees,
to come into effect on 29 December.


Decree (1): Composition of the Electoral Boards for
the
Ruskin Mastership and the Merton Professorship of English Literature

Explanatory note

The composition of the Electoral Boards for the Ruskin Mastership and for the Merton
Professorship of English Literature need amendment to bring them into line with current
practice. The following decree, made by the Planning and Resource Allocation Committee
of
Council on the recommendation of the Humanities Board, provides accordingly.

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Ch. VII, Sect. III, § 54 (Statutes, 2000, p. 413), delete cl. 4 and
substitute:

`4. The Ruskin Master shall be elected by an electoral board consisting of:

(1) the Vice-Chancellor, or, if the head of the college specified in (2) of this clause is
Vice-Chancellor, a person appointed by Council;

(2) the head of the college to which the Ruskin Mastership shall be for the time being
allocated by Council under any decree in that behalf, or, if the head is unable or unwilling
to act, a person appointed by the governing body of the college;

(3) a person appointed by the governing body of the college specified in (2) of this
clause;

(4) a person appointed by Council;

(5) a person appointed by the Humanities Board;

(6), (7) two persons appointed by the Committee for the Ruskin School of Drawing and
Fine Art;

(8) a person appointed by the Visitors of the Ashmolean Museum;

(9) a person appointed by the Committee for the History of Art.'

Decree (2): University Lecturership in the
Government of New
States

Explanatory note

The University Lecturership in the Government of New States is established by decree, and
the lecturer is appointed by an electoral board, the composition of which is set down in the
decree and includes the Vice-Chancellor. The post will be vacant from 1 October 2001 and
the Social Sciences Board has begun to make arrangements to fill the vacancy. The board
sees
no reason why the selection committee for this post should not be constituted in the same
way
as for any other university lecturership in Social Sciences, a view taken by the General Board
when it reviewed such posts in 1975, and now proposes that the provision for the electoral
board be rescinded. The Planning and Resource Allocation Committee of Council has
approved this proposal and has made the following decree, which provides accordingly.

Text of Decree (2)

In Ch. VII, Sect. III (Statutes, 2000, p. 429), delete § 101 and renumber existing
§§ 102--4 (pp. 429--30) as §§ 101--3.

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Medical Sciences Board with the approval of the
Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council, increases the number of examiners

candidates' examination time from thirty to forty minutes. Opportunity is taken also to

officio

Professor of
Medicine
and'.

2 Ibid., l. 6, delete `be examiners' and substitute `be an

UNIVERSITY APPOINTMENTS


Wilde Lecturership in Natural and Comparative
Religion

The electors propose to appoint two lecturers, one to hold office for the academic year
beginning 1 October 2002, and one for the academic year beginning 1 October 2003.
Applications (eight typed copies, or one from applicants overseas) are invited by 15 February
2001 and should be sent to Mrs E.A. Macallister, Secretary to the Wilde Electors,
Humanities
and Social Sciences Divisional Offices, 34 St Giles', Oxford OX1 3LH.

Candidates, when submitting their application, should give an indication of the lectures they
would propose to give (the field may be either natural or comparative religion although it is
hoped that an appointment will be made in each of the two fields) and, if they wish, include
any statement that they may think it desirable to submit. The scheme of lectures should be
for one year, and applicants are asked to indicate any specific preference as regards period
of
tenure. Applicants should name three referees and invite their referees to send references to
Mrs E.A. Macallister by the date given above.

The choice of the electors will not necessarily be limited to those who apply.

The emoluments of each lecturership will be about £4,000 a year, to be divided
between
stipend and expenses at the discretion of the electors.

The Wilde Lecturer is not subject to an age limit, and is not required to become a member
of the Universities Superannuation Scheme.

Extracts from the Decrees

The lecturer shall hold office for one or two or three years, as the electors shall determine.
A person may be appointed lecturer more than once; but the same person shall not be
appointed twice in succession.

The lecturer shall deliver not less than eight lectures in each academic year in Natural and
Comparative Religion; these lectures to be delivered either in the course of one term, or so
that not less than four be given in each of two terms.

For the purposes of this lecturership the term Natural Religion shall be taken to mean man's
conscious recognition of purposive intelligence and adaptibility in the universe of things on
which he is dependent for his continued existence and well-being and with which he
endeavours to live in harmonious relations. Comparative Religion shall be taken to mean the
modes of causation, rites, observance, and other concepts involved in the major historical
religions.

E.K. CHAMBERS STUDENTSHIP IN ENGLISH
LITERATURE 2001

The Board of Management invites applications for an E.K. Chambers
Studentship, tenable from 1 October 2001 or from a date as soon
afterwards as is convenient.

The studentship is tenable at either Corpus Christi College
or Somerville College (which now admits men as well as women).

It is open to those who have read and been examined in Latin
or Greek (or both) at university and who have graduated from a
university in the British Isles with an honours degree in a
subject other than `single honours' English. Candidates who have
read at university only one of the classical languages cited must
satisfy the board as to their competence in the other.

The studentship will normally be awarded for two years, but
may be renewed for not more than one further year. The person
appointed will be required to read English Literature, either
(a) for an advanced degree of the University;
or (b) for the Honour School of English
Language and Literature or the Honour School of English and
Modern Languages; or the Honour School of Classics and English;
or (c) otherwise than for a degree of the University.
A candidate not reading for a degree will normally be appointed
to the studentship for one year only.

Candidates defined by (a) must also apply for
admission to read for the degrees of their choice through the
Graduate Admissions Office, University Offices, Wellington
Square, Oxford OX1 2JD, by the end of January 2001.
Enquiries about advanced degrees and the procedure for admission
to read for them should be addressed to that office. Candidates
defined by (b) are encouraged to contact the college of
their choice (see below) as soon as possible.

The award will be sufficient to cover university and college
fees and provide a maintenance grant, the value of which will
normally be comparable to that of a British Academy award or (for
those reading for an Honour School) an LEA award. The board of
management will take into account financial circumstances in
assessing the total grant.

For further details on the colleges at which the studentship
may be held, candidates should contact Professor V. Cunningham,
Corpus Christi College, Oxford OX1 4JF (telephone: Oxford
(2)76753), or Professor K. Duncan-Jones, Somerville College,
Oxford OX2 6HD (telephone: Oxford (2)70610). Both colleges are
able to offer accommodation to a single graduate for the duration
of the studentship.

Application forms are available from (and should be returned
to) Mrs M. Clancy (Administrative Secretary), Faculty of English
Language and Literature, Manor Road, Oxford OX1 3UQ (telephone:
Oxford (2)71055, e-mail: melanie.clancy@ell.ox.ac.uk). The
completed application form should be accompanied by two pieces
of written work (in English) on literary topics of not more than
2,000 words each, and should arrive not later than Friday,
26 January 2001
.

NOTICES


EXETER COLLEGE


Senior Scholarship in Theology

Exeter College proposes to elect a graduate to a Senior Scholarship in Theology from 1
October 2001. The Scholar is to study for the Final Honour School of either Theology or
Philosophy and Theology.

The value of the scholarship will be determined by the college in the light of the
scholar's financial circumstances, but may, in appropriate cases, cover all college and
university fees for a `home' or EC student, and provide a maintenance grant of
approximately £3,725.
The scholarship is open to both men and women. The successful candidate shall hold, or
expect to hold by the time of admission to the scholarship, at least a second-class honours
degree in a subject other than Theology.

Applications, with a curriculum vitae and two academic references,
should reach the Chaplain, Exeter College, Oxford OX1 3DP, by 26 January (telephone:

which no separate application is required.

The successful applicant will be expected to undertake research, will be responsible for
the organisation of Philosophy teaching in the college and will be expected to teach
undergraduates reading for the Honour Schools of PPE, Literae Humaniores, and any Joint
School involving Philosophy. The college's principal teaching requirements are in the
following papers: Mill's Utilitarianism, Descartes'
Meditations and Elementary Formal Logic for Mods and Prelims; Ethics,
History of Philosophy from Descartes
to Kant, Knowledge and Reality, Philosophy of Religion, and Philosophy of Mind for Finals;
ability to teach other special courses would also be an asset.

The combined college and university salary will be according to age on a scale up to
£39,564 per annum (subject to review with effect from April 2001). Additional
college allowances are available. Further particulars, containing details of the duties and full

LINACRE COLLEGE


Mary Blaschko Graduate Scholarships

Linacre College proposes to elect to three Graduate Scholarships, of a value of £2,000
per annum, tenable for one year from 1 October 2001, with the possibility of renewal for
a second year. The scholarships are open to suitably qualified students reading or intending
to read for a
research degree in the arts and humanities. At the time
of taking up the scholarships, scholars must have been
admitted as postgraduate students by a relevant faculty
of Oxford University, and must be, or become, members
of Linacre College.

Applications forms may be obtained from the College Secretary, Linacre College,
Oxford OX1 3JA. Closing date for applications: 31 January.

Return to List of Contents of this section



Domus Research Studentships

Linacre College proposes to elect to not more than four Domus Studentships, tenable in the
first instance for two years from 1 October 2001, with the possibility of election for a third
year subject to satisfactory work and progress. The value of these studentships will be
£250 per year. They will not normally be tenable after the students' liability for
university and college fees has ended.

Holders of Domus Studentships will be given priority in the allocation of college
accommodation. Candidates for these studentships will be either students who intend to begin
reading for a higher degree or diploma at the University in October 2001, or current students
of Linacre College in their first or second years. There is no restriction of subject.
Candidates for these awards should submit an account of their previous academic work and

ST JOHN'S COLLEGE


North Senior Scholarships 2001 and Beeston
Scholarship 2001

St John's College proposes to elect from October 2001 one Beeston Scholar and two North
Senior Scholars, each of whom will be required to work for a higher degree of
Oxford University under a supervisor appointed by a faculty board. Candidates will normally
have completed a first degree, be aged twenty-five or under at the starting date, and be in
receipt of a United Kingdom graduate award, or its equivalent, covering the academic year
2001–2. Both scholarships are open to candidates in all subjects, but special
encouragement is given, in the case of the Beeston Scholarship, to applications in the field
of Middle Eastern Studies.

The value of the scholarships will be equal to the rate for awards from Government
agencies, plus academic fees, less the value of any award held (that is, the scholarship does
not duplicate fees and maintenance already paid by grant-awarding bodies). The scholars
may, with permission, undertake a limited amount of teaching. Unmarried scholars will be
offered accommodation, supplied by the college free of charge. A housing allowance is
available for married scholars. Scholars have the right to dine at high table once a week in
full term. The scholarships are normally tenable for two years.
Application forms, available from the Secretary to the Tutor for Graduates, Mrs Pat
Wilkinson, St John's College, Oxford OX1 3JP (telephone: Oxford (2)77428, fax: (2)77640),
should be returned as soon as possible, and not later than 19 January.
