Oriental Studies.

The further particulars of the posts (which all

ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY
TEACHERS

The Association of University Teachers is both a
professional
association and a trade union, committed to the
advancement of
university education and research. At the national level,
the AUT is
the recognised union for academic and academic-related
staff. Besides
its concern for more general questions of university
education and
research, the AUT negotiates salary levels and conditions
of
employment with the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and
Principals.

The Oxford branch of the AUT is open for membership
to
university and college employees, whether academic or
academic-related. It has over 900 members. It is the
official body
with which the University discusses priorities and
problems bearing
on education and research, and negotiates solutions to
them.
Discussions between the Oxford AUT and university
officers occur
formally once per term at a meeting of a Joint
Consultative
Committee, but there are many other informal meetings to
discuss
particular problems, including those affecting the
conditions of
employment of academic and academic-related staff, such
as the
`waiver clause' for those employed on contract grants.
The local AUT
also provides confidential advice on problems relating to
terms and
conditions of employment.

Application for membership and other enquiries can
be made to
Mrs Anne Hendry, Administrative Secretary, Oxford AUT,
New Barnett
House, 28 Little Clarendon Street, Oxford OX1 2HY
(telephone and fax:

(2)70418, e-mail: aut@ermine.ox.ac.uk) (9.30
a.m.--4.30 p.m.,
Tuesday–Thursday).

Enquiries may also be directed to the following: Kit
Bailey

(Honorary Secretary), Department of Plant Sciences
(telephone:

(2)75090); Denis O'Driscoll, Department of
Biochemistry (telephone:

(2)75260); Arthur Marsh (Personal Cases), St Edmund
Hall (telephone:

(2)74170).

General meetings of the Oxford AUT take place on
Tuesday of
third week in each term. The Hilary Term meeting will be
held on
at 1.15 p.m. on Tuesday, 2 February, in Blackhall, Queen
Elizabeth
House, 21 St Giles'. All AUT members and non-members will
be welcome.

GRIFFITH EGYPTOLOGICAL FUND

Applications are invited from graduate students registered for
a degree of the University of Oxford, and members of Congregation
engaged in Egyptological research or publication, for grants from
the Griffith Egyptological Fund. The fund exists for `the
promotion of research into the history and antiquities of Egypt
and the Nile Valley and the anthropology of north-east Africa so
far as it concerns the study of Ancient, Hellenistic, and
Christian Egypt and the early pagan and Christian kingdoms of the
Nilotic Sudan, including such linguistic, religious, and cultural
survivals as may throw light upon these matters, but excluding
special studies of Muhammadanism and Islamic art.' Funds may be
awarded for research and field trips in Egyptology, attendance
at conferences, and the preparation of publication materials.

Application forms and further details (which prospective
applicants must consult before they apply) are available from Mrs
Alix Slater, the Oriental Institute, Pusey Lane, Oxford OX1 2LE.
They can also be found on the Near Eastern Programme Web site:

KENNICOTT HEBREW FELLOWSHIP

The Kennicott Hebrew Fellowship, which may be held in conjunction
with a Junior Research Fellowship at the Oxford Centre for Hebrew
and Jewish Studies, is open to members of the University who have
obtained a first- or second-class degree in an Honour School or
candidates who have, in the opinion of the electors, achieved
comparable academic standing in another university. It is in
addition expected that candidates will have successfully
completed a doctorate or will be in the process of doing so.

Every candidate must submit with his or her application both
evidence of his or her knowledge of Hebrew and a statement
satisfactory to the electors as to the course of study he or she
intends to pursue in connection with the Hebrew language,
literature, history, or archaeology, or the cognate Semitic
languages, so far as they illustrate Hebrew. Every candidate who
is already a member of the University must also submit a
statement of consent to his or her candidature from the head of
his or her society. Preference may be given to candidates who
have not on the first day of Trinity Term 2000 passed their
twenty-fifth birthday.

The fellowship will be tenable for two years from the first day
of Michaelmas Term 1999, although it may be deferred at the
discretion of the Board of Management. It may be renewed for a
third year if the Board of Management so decides. The fellowship
may not be held twice by the same person.

The value of the fellowship shall initially be in the order of
£15,735 for candidates who have already successfully
completed and defended a doctorate or on the scale for
postgraduate research fellows in the case of those who are still
in the process of completing the doctorate. It will thereafter
rise by annual increments. As a condition of becoming entitled
to the emoluments of the fellowship, the fellow must have been
admitted to matriculation as a member of the University, must
reside within the University for two academic years unless the
electors give him or her leave to pursue his or her course of
study elsewhere, and must satisfy the Board of Management in each
term that he or she is diligently prosecuting a course of studies
in Hebrew approved by the board. Applications in the field of
Classical Hebrew Studies would be particularly welcome.

Candidates for the fellowship should submit the material detailed
below to the Secretary to the Board of Management for the
Kennicott and Pusey and Ellerton Funds, the Oriental Institute,
Pusey Lane, Oxford OX1 2LE, not later than 31 January: three
copies of a statement including (i) age, and date of
matriculation; (ii) qualifications; (iii) intended course of
research; (iv) a note of any further emoluments applied for or
obtained for the period to be covered by the fellowship. In
addition they are asked to arrange for two confidential academic
references on their behalf to be submitted direct to the
Secretary of the Board of Management by the same date.
