RESEARCH SERVICES OFFICE

The Oxford University Research Services Office (RSO) is based in the
University Offices, Wellington Square (with a satellite office in the
Medical School Offices, Level 3, John Radcliffe Hospital). The RSO is
part of the Finance Division of the University's central
administration.

The office processes and approves all applications to outside bodies
for research grants and approves research-related agreements on
behalf of the University. It also acts in an advisory capacity for
those seeking outside funding or requiring information about specific
initiatives (e.g. LINK, ROPA, Teaching Company schemes, EU research
programmes, etc.).

The RSO produces a weekly bulletin on funding opportunities,
electronic Research and Industry News (eRIN), which is available to
members of the University via the World Wide Web at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rcso/erin/.

Research contracts with industry are negotiated through the RSO,
which also deals, inter alia, with various intellectual
property matters, including other research-related agreements
covering clinical trials and services, services to industry,
confidentiality issues, material transfer and consultancy. Contact
details for members of the RSO, from whom advice may be sought are as
follows:

Ms Catherine Quinn, Director

(telephone: (2)70158, e-mail:
catherine.quinn@admin.ox.ac.uk);

Mr Pierre-Manuel Espinasse, Research Grants and European Liaison
Officer (telephone: (2)70043, e-mail:
pierre.espinasse@admin.ox.ac.uk);

Dr Michael Halsey, Assistant Registrar—Senior Contracts
Officer

(telephone: (2)70011, e-mail:
michael.halsey@admin.ox.ac.uk);

Dr Richard Liwicki, Assistant Registrar, John Radcliffe Hospital
satellite office

(telephone: 553 22604, e-mail:
richard.liwicki@admin.ox.ac.uk);

Ms Kathryn Dally, Administrative Officer

(telephone: (2)80319,
e-mail: kathryn.dally@admin.ox.ac.uk);

Ms Grace Garland, Administrative Officer

(telephone: (2)80666,
e-mail: grace.garland@admin.ox.ac.uk);

Ms Linda Jones, Administrative Officer

(telephone: 553 22131,
e-mail: linda.jones@admin.ox.ac.uk).

Enquiries relating to day-to-day processing of research grant
applications should be addressed to the RSO's Research Grants Office,
Room 330, the University Offices (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: 553 22544).

General enquiries may be addressed, in the first instance, to Mrs
Jane Taylor (telephone: (2)70143), who will be pleased to direct
calls to the appropriate member of staff.

Administrative procedures in respect of externally sponsored
research

Members of the University are reminded that it is a requirement of
the General Board that all applications for externally funded support
must be endorsed on behalf of the University through the Research
Services Office before they are despatched to the sponsor, whether or
not this is required by the funding body. (This includes, for
example, bodies such as the Leverhulme Trust, and other charities and
EU programmes which do not specifically ask for administrative
authorisation.)

The reason for the requirement is twofold: namely (i) to ensure that
the funds being requested are adequate for the purpose and the
costing rules of the funding body have been applied correctly, and
(ii) to ensure that the University would be in a position to
undertake the obligations arising from an award and that these do not
contravene University policy.

The detailed arrangements are as follows: applicants for research
grants should submit their applications, together with a completed
copy of the University's outside grant form, to Room 330, Research
Services Office, University Offices, Wellington Square (telephone:
(2)70146), leaving three clear working days for them to be
processed.

In connection with the acceptance of awards and signature of
contracts it should be noted that Statutes, Tit. X, cl. 3, provides
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 relevant officials in the Research Services Office have been
given authority to approve applications for external funds in support
of research and the terms of contracts in straightforward cases under
this provision; in more complicated cases, specific authority is
necessary.

Enquiries related to any aspect of externally sponsored research
should be directed to the Research Services Office, whose staff would
be pleased to help.

OPPENHEIMER FUND

The Oppenheimer Fund provides grants to assist the academic exchange
of senior members between the University of Oxford on the one hand
and universities and similar institutions of higher education in the
Republic of South Africa on the other. Applications are invited from
senior members of the University who wish either to visit one or more
universities in South Africa or to invite a staff member from a South
African university to Oxford. Grants may be awarded to assist with
living expenses for a maximum of six months, and travel costs. Visits
for the sole purpose of attending a conference will not normally be
eligible for support from the fund.

The maximum level of grants is likely to be up to £1,000 per
month for subsistence and up to £700 for the cost of travel
between Oxford and South Africa. Applications for grants from the
fund should include a statement of the purpose of the proposed visit
(including an outline of any research to be carried out during the
visit), duration and estimated costs, details of any other available
sources of funding, and, in the case of visits to Oxford, a
curriculum vitae of the staff member it is proposed to
invite and a letter of support from a senior member at Oxford.
Applications should be sent to the International Office, University
Offices, Wellington Square, by 15 November.

SIR JOHN HICKS FUND

The Committee for the Sir John Hicks Fund invites applications from
members of the University for grants towards the costs of research in
economic history. Applications will be considered from
undergraduates, graduate students, and members of academic staff, and
may relate to research into the economic history of any period or
country.

Applicants should (a) provide sufficient information about
the general nature of their research to establish that it falls
within the field of economic history; and (b) specify the
precise nature and cost of the expenditure for which a grant is
requested. They should also give the name of one referee who might be
consulted by the committee.

It is intended by the committee that grants should normally be made
for sums of up to £250, though this may on occasion be exceeded.
Retrospective grants will be made only in exceptional
circumstances.

The committee will consider applications twice in each year. The
closing date for the first round is Monday of the third week of
Hilary Term, and for the second round Monday of the third week of
Trinity Term. Applications should be sent to Mrs E.A. Macallister,
Secretary of the Committee for the Sir John Hicks Fund, University
Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD.

WOLFSON COLLEGE


Godfrey Lienhardt Memorial Fund

Applications are invited for grants from the fund, which has been
established by Wolfson College from a bequest by the late Dr R.G.
Lienhardt `for the promotion of the Social and Cultural Anthropology
of Africa south of the Sahara desert but excluding the Republic of
South Africa'. Those eligible to apply are graduate students of the
University, and those admitted as graduate students for the coming
academic year, whose research falls within the specified terms of the
fund. It is proposed to make one major award of up to £1,500,
priority for which will be given to those engaged in field research,
and a few smaller grants of up to £250. Additionally,
applications for archival projects will be considered (whether from
graduate students or not).

Application forms and further information may be obtained from the
President's Secretary, Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD. Applications
must be submitted by Monday, 13 December.
