CONGREGATION 28 November 2 p.m.


Notice

As explained in the Vice-Chancellor's Oration (Gazette,
p. 174) and in the notices on pp. 37 and 184, Council had in mind the
possibility of a debate in Congregation on 28 November about the
report of Council's Working Party on Senior Library Posts. Council
has now given further consideration to the timetable for this debate
and has decided that it would be preferable for the matter to be put
before Congregation in Hilary Term rather than at the end of
Michaelmas Term, in order in particular to allow time for
consideration of the report of the advisory group (chaired by the
Warden of Rhodes House) on the management structure for an integrated
library system, which is published as a Supplement in the current
Gazette.


Voting on Statutes promulgated on 14
November

(For forms of Statutes (1) and (2) see

    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

    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,
      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

    Pirie-Reid Scholarship

    Applications are invited for a Pirie-Reid Scholarship tenable at the
    University of Oxford by graduates (including persons expecting to
    graduate in 1996) who intend in October 1996 to commence working for
    a degree or diploma.

    Preference will be given to candidates applying from other
    universities, i.e. not already matriculated at Oxford, and to those
    domiciled or educated in Scotland. Candidates not fulfilling
    these criteria are unlikely to be successful.

    The scholarship, which is to to be awarded to a person wishing to
    begin a course of study at Oxford who would otherwise be
    prevented by lack of funds will cover university and college fees and
    provide a grant for maintenance, subject to assessment of other
    sources of income (maintenance grants for 1995–6 are £1,885
    for undergraduates and £5,260 for postgraduates). It will be
    renewable from year to year, subject to satisfactory progress and
    continuance of approved full-time study.

    Candidates for the Pirie-Reid Scholarship are expected to have
    applied for admission to the University in the usual way.

    Application forms may be obtained from Mrs J. Brown, University
    Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD.

    The closing date for applications is 1 May 1996.

    undertake graduate studies in English Literature or to read English
    as a second honour school. Candidates must have read Latin or Greek
    (or both) at university and be competent in both. They must have
    graduated by October 1996 from a university in the British Isles with
    an honours degree in a subject other than `single honours' English.
    The studentship is normally comparable in value to a British Academy
    award.

    Further particulars and application forms are available from Mrs
    J. Thompson, Assistant to the Secretary to the Board of Management of
    the Chambers Bequest, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford

    Accommodation for Lectures

    Hilary Term 1996

    The Chairman of the Curators of the Schools would be grateful if
    Professors, Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture
    at the Schools in Hilary Term 1996 could inform the Clerk of the
    Schools at the end of the present term. It is necessary to know
    whether a room suitable for an audience of more than one hundred
    persons is required; only the three large writing-schools will
    accommodate more than that number.

    Leave for the use of rooms for lectures will expire at the
    end of the seventh week of Hilary Term.

    Afternoon lectures should normally finish by 6 p.m.

    Attention is drawn to the fact that overhead projection
    equipment and 35-mm projectors are available. When these
    facilities are required the Clerk of the Schools should be
    notified in advance.

    and hydrogen-like systems, alkali atoms, helium and atoms with
    two electrons outside closed shells. Diatomic molecules.

    treatment of the interaction of radiation and atoms. Linewidths
    and lineshapes. Amplification by stimulated emission and the
    laser oscillator. Cavity effects. Gas lasers (He-Ne, He-Cd+

    Atoms II: Atomic and molecular spectroscopy and manipulation
    of atoms. Homonuclear molecules. Hyperfine structure including
    effects of external magnetic fields. Optical pumping. Doppler-
    free laser spectroscopy. Laser cooling and trapping of atoms and
    ions. Elementary treatment of quantum optics and the physical
    basis of quantum-electrodynamic effects in atoms.

    molecular lasers. Lasers operating in the ultraviolet. Dye
    lasers. Semiconductor lasers. Diode pumped solid-state lasers.
    Use of lasers in chemical physics.

    Optics II: Advanced optics: Fourier transforms. Coherence.

    in atoms and molecules and their applications).

    In the examination candidates will be expected to be able to
    answer questions on Atoms I, Lasers I and II and Optics I
    together with either Atoms II OR Optics II.

    One written paper of 1½ hours

    The Syllabuses for this paper, topics A–H, are as published
    for the Honour School of Natural Science (Physics) Three Year
    Course Part B published in the Gazette (No. 4368,
    Vol. 125).

    (Candidates offering option 2 may not answer questions on
    topic G: candidates offering option 6 may not answer questions
    on topic B).

    Candidates may replace the 1½ hour paper by an assessed
    course in a foreign language as specified in the regulations for
    the three year course.

    Candidates may propose to the Chairman of the Sub-Faculty of
    Physics or deputy, not later than the first week of the Trinity
    full term of the academic year preceding that in which the
    examination is taken, another subject paper or papers to replace
