GUIDELINES FOR LEAVE FOR ACADEMIC
STAFF


1. Approval of applications for leave

All applications for leave from normal academic duties (sabbatical leave, leave to hold
research awards, special leave etc.) must be accompanied by a recommendation from the
individual's department or faculty board, as appropriate, and must also be approved by the
divisional board which now has the authority to grant leave.



2. Sabbatical leave and dispensation from CUF
lecturing
obligations

The University's regulations in respect of sabbatical leave and dispensation from CUF
lecturing duties are set out in Ch. VII, Sect. I (Statutes, 2000, pp. 372--4).
Application forms and advice on individuals' entitlement may be obtained from:

Humanities and Social Sciences Divisions: Ms Seidler, 34 St Giles' (telephone: (2)70016,
e-mail: Ingunn.Seidler@admin.ox.ac.uk);

Mathematical and Physical Sciences Division: application forms are available from the office
of the head of division; advice on entitlement is available from Mrs Iredale, University
Offices (telephone (2)70017, e-mail: Eileen.Iredale@admin.ox.ac.uk);

All other staff: Mrs Iredale, University Offices (telephone: (2)70017, e-mail:
Eileen.Iredale@admin.ox.ac.uk).

Completed application forms (signed by the head of department where appropriate) should
be
returned to Ms Seidler, the head of the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Division, or Mrs
Iredale, as appropriate, for processing and for faculty board/divisional board approval.



3. Sabbatical leave in advance of entitlement

In some circumstances individuals may wish to take leave for purposes covered by the
sabbatical leave scheme at a time when they do not have sufficient sabbatical entitlement.
Such circumstances might include an unrepeatable opportunity to pursue academic interests,
or a need to undertake fieldwork for a period exceeding one year. In such cases leave could
be granted in whole or in part as sabbatical leave in advance of entitlement if a good
academic case could be demonstrated.



4. Applications for leave to hold some public offices

Applications for leave to accept an appointment in the public service of national or
international importance are normally granted by the divisional board, provided that:

—the purpose of the leave can be shown to be compatible with the academic interests
of the department or faculty;

—the department or faculty (and the college in the case of joint appointments) supports
the application and is able to cover the individual's duties including examining and graduate
supervision;

—it is clear that the individual intends to return to university service after the period
of
leave.

Applications for leave to hold such offices should be made to the divisional secretary, faculty
board secretary or other officer as notified locally.



5. Applications for certain research awards

Applications to national bodies of prestigious and competitive research awards (e.g. British
Academy Research Readerships and Senior Research Fellowships, AHRB Research Leave
awards, EPSRC Senior or Advanced Fellowships) are normally granted by the divisional
board provided that the department or faculty (and the college in the case of joint
appointments) supports the application and that appropriate arrangements can be made to
cover the individual's duties, including examining and graduate supervision, should the
application be successful. Completed application forms (including any annexes) should be
forwarded to Ms Seidler for the Humanities and Social Sciences divisions, and to Mrs Iredale
for all other staff, well before the closing date for processing and for divisional board
approval. Applications from CUF lecturers are normally sent to the awarding body by the
college (but must have divisional board approval beforehand); applications from other staff
are normally forwarded to the awarding body by Ms Seidler or Mrs Iredale.



6. Applications for special unpaid leave

Applications for leave other than those outlined above may be considered as applications for
special unpaid leave. Applications may be considered if they meet one or
both
of the following criteria: (i) providing academic benefit to the University; (ii) providing a
career development opportunity for the individual, hence aiding staff retention.

Activities under these criteria might include visiting another institution to study
specialised laboratory techniques, taking up a visiting lecturership or visiting professorship
at
a prestigious department abroad, an extended period of fieldwork, etc.

In all cases, it is essential that the consent of the college (where appropriate) and of the
department/faculty board is obtained before an application is made to the divisional board.
In
considering applications, colleges and departments/faculty boards must be satisfied that the
proposed leave fits with their overall plans and objectives, and it must be clear that the
individual's duties for the college and for the department/faculty, including examining and
graduate supervision, can be covered satisfactorily. Divisional boards will consider
applications both on their own merits and in the context of overall operational needs, and will
not approve applications which are prejudicial to the teaching and research of the
department/faculty or which are not supported by the applicant's college.

Occasionally applications are made for leave to enable an individual to accept a
fixed-term appointment in another academic institution (other than routine visiting
appointments held during sabbatical leave). In such instances the college and the
department/faculty board would need to be satisfied that the application was in line with their
overall plans and objectives, as above, and that all operational requirements could be covered
satisfactorily, before the application was put to the divisional board. Applicants would
normally be expected to give a commitment to return to Oxford after the period of leave. It
should be noted that the longer the appointment at the other institution, the less likely it is
that
leave will be granted.

Leave will not be granted, except in the most truly exceptional circumstances, to enable
an individual to decide whether to accept a permanent post elsewhere.

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 and to their
college under the terms of their contracts, no such offer should be accepted without the
support of the college and the department/faculty and the explicit approval of the divisional
board. It is essential, therefore, that any prospect of such an offer is discussed, in
confidence,
with the college and with the divisional secretary or faculty board secretary at the earliest
opportunity so as to avoid delays, and the possibility of refusal, if a firm offer is then made
at very short notice.

All applications for special unpaid leave should be made to the divisional secretary,
faculty board secretary or other officer as notified locally, who will also be able to advise
on
the likelihood of success of any application on the university side; the college's consent in
appropriate cases must be obtained before an application is put to the divisional board.



7. Special paid leave

Divisions may, if they wish, with the concurrence of the college in relevant cases, grant
additional paid leave outside sabbatical entitlement, funded from their own resources, to
enable staff to undertake projects of mutual benefit to the individual and the University.
Examples might include asking a member of staff to concentrate for a term wholly on
considering revised teaching patterns across a whole subject area; or permitting a member
of
staff to teach at another university for a term to foster inter-institutional links, possibly as
part
of an exchange arrangement.



8. Stipendiary arrangements

Sabbatical leave and dispensation from CUF lecturing duties: leave will be granted with
stipend (although it may be granted without stipend if taken for the purpose of holding a
remunerated visiting appointment under 6 above).

Leave to hold a public office: leave will be granted without stipend.

Leave to hold a research award: the arrangements vary depending on the regulations
governing the award, but it is normal for individuals holding such awards to continue to
receive their usual university stipend, the awarding body either providing funds to make a
replacement appointment or reimbursing the University for the individual's salary costs.

Special leave: leave will normally be granted without stipend, but see 7 above.



9. Implications for future entitlement to sabbatical
leave or
dispensation from CUF lecturing duties

Special leave does not count as qualifying service for the purposes of calculating future
entitlement to sabbatical leave or dispensation from CUF lecturing duties. However it does
not count against an individual's future entitlement. When special leave has
been
granted for the purposes of holding a public office or a research award, sabbatical leave is
not
normally granted in the period immediately preceding or following the period of special
leave,
although some flexibility may be exercised at the divisional board's discretion in respect of
periods of special leave not exceeding one year, especially in connection with the holding of
research awards.

JANE WILLIS KIRKALDY JUNIOR AND SENIOR
PRIZES 2002

The Committee for the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology gives notice that two
prizes of £300 each will be offered for competition in Michaelmas Term 2002, the
Junior Prize and the Senior Prize. At its discretion, the Committee may award a proxime
accessit prize in one or both categories.

The Junior Prize is open to all undergraduate members of the University and to those
who, at the deadline for the submission of the essays, are within one term of having
completed the examination for an 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 eligible to be awarded the Junior Prize for a different piece of work
on a subsequent occasion.

The Senior prize is open to all members of the University registered as students for the
degrees of M.Sc., M.Litt., M.St., M.Phil., or D.Phil. in the University who are not eligible
to
enter for the Junior Prize. The Senior Prize may not be awarded to the same person twice,
nor
may 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
eligible to be awarded the Senior Prize for a different piece of work on a subsequent
occasion.

Candidates are invited to submit an essay of the order of 10,000–15,000 words,
on a topic concerning the history of science or technology, proposed by the candidate, and
approved by the Committee. The history of science will be taken in this instance to include
the history of medicine. Candidates are advised to state the principal sources whence their
information has been obtained. The subject of any such essay must be approved by the end
of Trinity Term 2002.

Applications for approval of a subject should be sent to the Chairman of the Committee
for the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology, Modern History Faculty, Broad
Street,
Oxford OX1 3BD, by Friday, 7 June. The prize money shall be spent on books, unless the
express consent of the Committee for the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology be
given to the contrary.

Essays, which should be typewritten, must be received by the Secretary to the
Committee for the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology, Modern History Faculty,
Broad Street, Oxford OX1 3BD, not later than Monday, 21 October. A copy of each entry
that wins the Junior or Senior Prize is to be deposited in the library of the Museum of the
History of Science.

SPEAKING BY JUNIOR MEMBERS IN
CONGREGATION

Mr Vice-Chancellor has, with the agreement of Council, approved the following
arrangements
for junior members to speak in Congregation under the terms of Ch. I, Sect x (Statutes,
2000,
p. 213), which reads as follows:

`Any junior member as defined in Tit. XV, Sect. iv, § 1, cl. 2, may speak at a
meeting
of Congregation, if called upon to do so by the Chairman at the Chairman's discretion,
provided that the Chairman may at any time terminate a debate on the floor of the House and
proceed to the final speeches and the taking of a vote.'

The Chairman of Congregation will normally expect to call upon nominated representatives
of the Oxford University Student Union if they wish to speak in debate, and will normally
expect to call upon junior members to speak only from among those who have given advance
notice of their wish to be called. Should the Chairman consider that the number of junior
members who have given such notice is excessive, he or she will have to be selective in
calling upon them. The Chairman will try to ensure a balanced debate in relation to the
apparent spread and strength of views held by junior members. If informed selection is to
be
possible it is desirable that when giving notice of the wish to be called a junior member
should indicate (a) whether he or she intends to support or oppose the motion
before the House, (b) whether he or she would speak on behalf of any club,
committee, group, or association, (c) whether he or she is supported by other
junior members (up to twelve of whom might sign the notice).

If the number giving notice is small they will all be admitted to the floor of the
House
although this does not ensure their being called. In other cases some selection may be
necessary at the stages of both admission and calling of speakers. If there is to be time to tell
applicants whether they will be admitted notice will have to be received in good time. Junior
members should therefore send in such notice, in writing, to the Registrar to be received at
the University Offices not later than 10 a.m. on the Monday preceding the debate in
question.
The name of any representative nominated by OUSU should also be communicated to the
Registrar, in writing, through the President by that time. A notice will then be posted in the
University Offices and on the gate of the Clarendon Building not later than 10 a.m. on the
morning of the debate, indicating whether all applicants will be admitted to the floor of the
House or, if selection has had to take place, the names of those selected for admission to the
floor.

Junior members not admitted to the floor of the House will normally be permitted to
listen to the debate from the gallery. Junior members on the floor of the House will be asked
to remain in their places while a vote is being taken.

Under Tit. XV, Sect. iv, § 1, cl. 2, junior members are defined as `those
persons
who, having been admitted to matriculation, are residing to fulfil the requirements of any
statute, decree, or regulation of the University or reading for any degree, diploma, or
certificate of the University and who have not proceeded to membership of Convocation'.
(Membership of Convocation is obtained by taking a degree of the University.)

Oxford University Research Staff Society

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. Our next event will be a comedy night at
Jongleurs on 30 May.
