RESEARCH SERVICES OFFICE

The Oxford University Research Services Office (RSO) is based in
the University Offices, Wellington Square (with satellite offices
in the Medical School Offices of the John Radcliffe Hospital and
at 9 Parks Road). The RSO is part of the Finance Division of the
University's central administration.

In connection with the acceptance of research awards and
signature of research-related contracts, the University's
Statutes, Tit. X, Sect. 3, cl. 1, provide that `no official of
the University or any other person employed by the University or
working in or in connection with any department of or under the
control of the University shall in connection with any invention,
discovery, or patent, or ... process, or manufacture have
authority to make any representations on behalf of the University
or to enter into any contract on behalf of the University or to
be concerned in any transaction whatsoever in connection
therewith on behalf of the University except with the express
consent of Council.'

The RSO is authorised to process all applications to outside
bodies for research grants and to sign research-related
agreements on behalf of the University. It can also provide
advice for those seeking external research funding or requiring
information about specific initiatives (e.g. LINK, EU research
programmes, etc.).

Research-related contracts with industry and other external
sponsors are negotiated through the RSO. Such contracts include
agreements covering the sponsorship of research, collaborative
research, clinical trials, services to industry, intellectual
property issues, confidentiality issues, material transfer, and
consultancy.

Information about the RSO, its publications and
administrative processes is available at
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/.


Research Funding Information

The RSO produces a weekly Web-based bulletin of funding
opportunities with forthcoming deadlines for applications,
electronic Research Funding News
(eRFN), which is available to members of the
University via the Internet at
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/erfn/. Non-funding research-related
information is publicised via the RSO's Web-based Bulletin Board.
To receive regular e-mails summarising the contents of both these
publications, contact Ellen McAteer (see contact details
below).

The University also has access to various online research
funding databases and other sources of research-related
information, available from the Web site at
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/info/pubhome.htm.


Research-related information

If you would like to receive a weekly e-mail reminder summarising
the contents of electronic Research Funding News,
and also those of the Bulletin Board, which carries
research-related news other than funding opportunities, please
e-mail ellen.mcateer@admin.ox.ac.uk with the subject line `join
eRFN mailing list'. Please note that this service is only
available to members of the University with an `ox.ac.uk' e-mail
account. Ellen McAteer (telephone: (2)70082) is also the first
point of contact for all research funding information queries.


Research Grant Applications

All applications for external research funding must be endorsed
by the University before they are despatched to the sponsor,
whether or not this is required by the funding body.
In order to do this, the University requires all applications
made to funding bodies (such as the research councils, government
departments, UK and overseas charities and foundations, and
industry) to be checked and endorsed by the RSO on behalf of the
University. The reasons for this are to ensure that:

—the funds requested are sufficient to cover the research
being undertaken (e.g. that correct and up-to-date salary scales
have been used);

—the costing rules of the University have been applied
correctly (e.g. that the appropriate level of indirect costs have
been applied);

—the guidelines of the funding body have been followed
correctly (e.g. that the funds requested may be used for the
purpose proposed); and that

—the University would be in a position to accept the grant
should the application be successful (e.g. that appropriate
facilities are available to house the project, or that the
proposed research does not contravene university policy).

In addition, the RSO can:

—advise on the factors which should be taken into
consideration when costing research projects;

—provide information on funding body guidelines; and

—advise on the completion of the necessary application and
internal forms prior to submission to the RSO's Research Grants
Office (RGO).

The administrative arrangements for submitting research
funding applications are available from the RSO's Web site at
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/oxonly/rgo/office.htm. In summary,
these are as follows: applicants should submit the original plus
one copy of their application, together with a completed copy of
the University's Outside Grants (OG) form, to the Research
Services Office, or, in the case of certain clinical departments,
to the RSO satellite office at the Medical School Offices of the
John Radcliffe Hospital, leaving three clear working days for it
to be processed.


Application administration

Enquiries relating to the day-to-day processing of research grant
applications should be addressed to the RSO's Research Grants
Office (telephone: (2)70146), or, in the case of certain clinical
departments, to the RSO satellite office, the Medical School
Offices, Level 3, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington (telephone:
(2)22544).


Research Contracts

The RSO's Research Contracts Office (RCO) is responsible for
negotiating and approving the terms on behalf of the University
of all research-related agreements, including those governing:

—sponsored or commissioned research;

—collaborative research;

—clinical trials;

—confidentiality and non-disclosure of information;

—transfer of materials;

—research-related services to industry;

—personal consultancy.

In addition, the contracts team takes lead responsibility
within the RSO for:

—checking intellectual property rights and preparing the
assignment of new technologies to Isis Innovation for
exploitation, through licences or spin-out companies;

—authorising royalty payments to inventors;

—advice on matters connected with research-related
contracts.

The administrative arrangements for University
research-related agreements are available from the RSO's
Web site at http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/rco/conhome.htm.


Research-related contracts

Enquiries relating to research-related contracts should be
addressed to the RSO's Research Contracts Office (telephone:
(2)70039).


General enquiries

General enquiries to the RSO may be addressed, in the first
instance, to Ms Sarah-Jayne Beedall (telephone: (2)70143, e-mail:
sarah.beedall@admin.ox.ac.uk), who will be pleased to direct
queries to the appropriate member of staff.

McDONNELL STUDENTSHIPS

A small amount of money from the McDonnell Centre will be
available again for the 2002–3 academic year, to provide
one-year graduate studentships. These awards can, depending on
individual need, cover stipend, fees, or both. Studentships will
be awarded: (1) to enable outstanding students with insufficient
funding to take the taught M.Sc. in Neuroscience (preference will
be given to candidates who intend to stay in Oxford to work for
a D.Phil., and who have a good chance of funding for this from
elsewhere); (2) in exceptional circumstances, to help students
in financial difficulties during their DPhil work.

Preference will be given to applications for
interdisciplinary projects that involve joint supervision, and
that will stimulate collaboration between two or more groups
associated with the McDonnell Centre.

McDonnell Studentships will not normally be extended, so it
is essential to demonstrate that any applicant has funding from
some other source, if the course of study is to lasts for more
than a single year. In exceptional circumstances, awards for
partial funding may be made for more than one year.

Applications are invited from members of the Centre on behalf
of prospective or existing students who will be under their
academic supervision. To apply, the supervisor should write,
enclosing the candidate's curriculum vitae and any
supporting material, and stating clearly the level of funding
sought and why, to the Administrative Secretary, Oxford Centre
for Cognitive Neuroscience, University Laboratory of Physiology,
Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PT (telephone: Oxford (2)72497, e-mail:
sally.harte@physiol.ox.ac.uk).

Application deadlines: for D.Phil. students: Wednesday, 20
February; for M.Sc. students: Friday, 29 March.

TIMOTHY BAILEY SCHOLARSHIP

The Timothy Bailey Trust has been set up in memory of Timothy
Bailey, a Biology graduate of Christ Church. It aims to provide
financial support to students of Oxford University to assist them
in undertaking any extra-curricular project or expedition
relating to the Biological Sciences. Generally a single
Scholarship will be awarded each year, on a competitive basis.

Applicants should produce a written proposal of 500--1,000
words stating clearly: (a) the background to, and aims
of, the activity; (b) how a successful outcome to the
activity will contribute to our knowledge and understanding of
any aspect of Biology; (c) detailed work plans for a
successful outcome; (d) how, in the event of a
successful application, the award will contribute to this
outcome.

Timothy Bailey was especially interested in Evolution,
Entomology and Developmental Biology and applications in any or
all of these areas are especially encouraged, although this is
not an essential requirement.

It is expected that applicants will normally be individuals,
including those going on University Expeditions with others.
Exceptionally expeditions may also be considered for joint
funding although this is not preferred.

Three copies of each application should be addressed as
follows: the Timothy Bailey Scholarship, c/o Professor D. J.
Rogers, Department of Zoology, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1
3PS.

Applications must be received on or before Friday of eighth
week of Hilary Term (8 March) and decisions will be reached and
communicated to the successful applicants by the end of first
week of Trinity Term (26 April). Candidates who have not heard
by the start of the second week of Trinity Term must assume they
have been unsuccessful.

Entries will be judged by the Trustees, whose decision is
final. Currently the Trustees are Dr Mark Bailey, Mr Greg Payne,
and Professor David Rogers. The Timothy Bailey Scholarships will
be to a value of approximately £500. In the event of joint
winners the Trustees will divide this sum between them.

The winning applicant(s) will be expected to acknowledge the
support of the Timothy Bailey Trust in any reports or scientific
papers arising from any activity supported by the Trust. They
should also provide a written report of no more than 2,000 words
to the Trustees upon completion of the research and travel
supported.

Information regarding the life and interests of Timothy
Bailey, plus further details on the Trust, can be found at
www.timothybailey.com.

It is hoped that this award can be made for a number of years
into the future, depending upon the funds available to the
Trustees.
