STATUTES APPROVED BY HER MAJESTY IN
COUNCIL

Mr Vice-Chancellor has received a communication from the Clerk of Her Majesty's Privy
Council, stating that on 18 July 2001 Her Majesty was pleased to approve the Statutes (1)
concerning the College Contributions Scheme and (2) concerning the Eugene Havas
Memorial
Prize, printed in GAZETTE, Vol. 131, p. 403 (approved by
Congregation,
p. 472).

2001–2 BUDGET SETTLED

Following the announcement of the HEFCE settlement in March Oxford, in common with
most other universities, finds itself facing continuing and substantial financial constraint in
2001–2. The Planning and Resource Allocation Committee of Council has met
frequently to consider the budget for next year and, on its recommendation, Council has
agreed that the University should accept a planned deficit in its internal revenue account of
£1.6m for the coming year. The initial deficit forecast of £7m considered by the
committee has been reduced by a programme of planned savings. The initial forecast figure
arose partly because a number of non-recurrent measures were agreed to keep to a minimum
the cuts in department allocations during 2000–1.

The implementation of OMIS will result in significant recurrent expenditure savings and,
to minimise the impact of cuts upon divisions, a number of further temporary measures, such
as a reduction in the size of the University's central contingency, have also been agreed.
However a substantial part of the deficit has still had to be passed on to the academic
divisions and the seriousness of this for the divisions is not underestimated.

The Vice-Chancellor, Dr Colin Lucas, comments: `The impact of continuing cuts in real
terms in state funding cannot be underestimated. The University faces another very difficult
year financially. While we are taking further short-term measures to try to mitigate the
impact
of Government cuts, it is going to be a hard year for us all. We must continue developing
alternative sources of funding and we must all make it a priority to work together to put in
place a long-term financial strategy to eliminate any underlying deficit.'

Heads of all spending areas have been notified of this year's allocation for their area.

CAREERS SERVICE


Careers Advice Service for Contract Research Staff

This initiative, provided by the University Careers Service at 56 Banbury Road (in addition
to services provided to students), aims to encourage and enable academic-related research
staff, who are employed directly by the University on fixed term contracts (contract research
staff), to make and implement well informed decisions about their careers by:

—providing impartial, professional, careers advice;

—supporting them in recognising and developing the attributes necessary for successful
career development;

—enabling them to appreciate and explore the range of opportunities available;

—assisting them to clarify their values, interests, abilities and skills and to relate these
to possible career options;

—providing access to a wide variety of careers information and resources to facilitate
the formulation and implementation of career plans.

The service operates flexibly in an attempt to cater for personal needs, whether individuals
are:

—generally uncertain about the career options open to them;

—considering reviewing or changing their career direction;

—thinking about finding a new job in academia, commerce, industry, the public sector,
or setting up their own business, etc.

Following registration members of contract research staff will have access to up to four,
confidential, one-to-one meetings with a careers adviser to help clarify personal and career
objectives and to identify the main career options open to them. They may also drop-in to
see
the Duty Adviser at the Careers Service to help resolve brief queries and make use of the
wide range of careers information resources held at the Careers Service, including, a
computerised careers guidance system. Psychometric ability testing and personality profiling
for career development purposes (with feedback) can also be arranged, on an ad
hoc
basis, where sufficient demand exists. In addition, two career development
workshops (Career Review and Planning, and Job Search and Interview Skills), designed
specifically for contract research staff who are looking to review their careers and develop
effective career management, job search and interview skills, are run at various times
throughout the year. To book a place on any of these workshops please telephone, or e-mail,
the Institute for the Advancement of University Learning (telephone: (2)86808, e-mail:
services@learning.ox.ac.uk).

Further details of the service are available on the Careers Service Web-site,

THE BRITISH ACADEMY


Research Readerships and Senior Research
Fellowships

Details were released in late July of the 2001 call for
applications for the Research Readership and Senior Research
Fellowship schemes of the British Academy.

These awards are aimed at established academics in the
humanities and social sciences who need time to concentrate on
a major piece of research. Awards allow the successful candidates
to undertake or to complete an approved programme of sustained
research, while relieved of their normal teaching and
administrative commitments. Research Readerships are tenable for
two years; Senior Research Fellowships are tenable for one
year.

Details of this new scheme have also been advertised on the
RSO's weekly web-based research funding bulletin `electronic
Research Funding News', available at the following Web site:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/erin/010730.htm.

Application forms and further details are available from the
British Academy Web site at:
http://www.britac.ac.uk/funding/guide/appoints.html.

Potential applicants should approach their respective faculty
board and divisional board (as well as their college), in line
with Personnel Services' leave guidelines. They should also
consult the secretary of their divisional board at the earliest
opportunity. As with all university research-related
applications, completed application forms for funding under this
scheme would need to be endorsed on behalf of the University by
the Research Services Office (RSO). The deadline for applications
for the British Academy's Readership and Fellowship schemes is
31 October 2001, and the RSO would ask to receive the forms for
signature by 24 October 2001.
