OXFORD CENTRE FOR
COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE


McDonnell Visiting Fellowships

The McDonnell Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience is closely integrated with
the Medical
Research Council Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience at Oxford and supports
work on many
aspects of brain research relevant to human cognition in several departments
at Oxford
University as well as at other institutions.

The McDonnell 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. Current and fuller information on the Centre is
available on the Web
at http://www.cogneuro.ox.ac.uk.

The Centre offers several forms of support including Visiting Fellowships
for
distinguished researchers from overseas or elsewhere in Britain who wish to
work within the
Oxford Centre for periods between a week and several months. A Visiting
Fellowship can
include a modest grant to help with costs of travel and accommodation (but
not a stipend),
and to pay a bench fee to the host department.

Applications for Visiting Fellowships may be submitted either by a member
of the
Oxford Centre, or by the intended visitor. There is no special form for
applications but they
should include the following information:
name, address, and status of applicant (in the form of a very brief
curriculum
vitae
); names and addresses of collaborators in Oxford; a brief
description (a page or
two) of the proposed research; a list of any publications that have already
resulted from the
area of research; an outline plan of visit/s and expenditure, with total
estimated budget, other
sources of funding and the amount requested

Applications can be submitted at any time (e-mail is acceptable) to Sally
Harte
(Administrative Secretary), McDonnell Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience,
University
Laboratory of Physiology, Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PT (telephone: Oxford
(2)72497, fax:

COMPUTING SERVICES


Academic Computing Development
Team: call for proposals,
autumn 2001

The Academic Computing Development Team invites proposals from Oxford
University staff
for the development of IT-based teaching or research projects. The ACDT is
part of OUCS's
Learning Technologies Group and therefore is multidisciplinary. It grew out
of the Humanities
Computing Development Team which has been running projects for over three
years.
However, since the autumn of 2001 the team has received additional funding
to widen its
remit to all of the academic disciplines taught at Oxford. Therefore proposals
are invited from
staff members within any academic division to be developed during the year
2002–3.
The ACDT encourages applicants who wish to begin projects with a start date
of February
2002 or November 2002.

Projects may be based in any subject area and can have either a teaching
or research
focus. Examples of the types of projects which might be considered
appropriate are:
Web-based teaching and learning materials; online dissemination of rare
materials; and the
design and development of databases or software. Projects may range in size
from provision
of advice on planning an IT project to the design and development of a whole
system.
Projects may involve more than one partner including academic, library,
museum, and support
staff.

The ACDT has already developed a number of successful projects, details
of which can
be found on the Web at http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/acdt/projects/projects.html.
The projects
shown on the Web page are all in the Humanities area; but this is the ACDT's
first call for
proposals open to all subject areas.

For further details on how to propose a project, and an application form,
see
http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/acdt/. Questions should be directed to Sophie
Clarke, ACDT Project
Manager, OUCS, 13 Banbury Road (telephone: Oxford (2)83428, e-mail:
sophie.clarke@oucs.ox.ac.uk).

The closing date for proposals is Friday, 14 December. The ACDT realises
that this date
may be difficult for those who are dealing with admissions. Anyone who finds
the closing
date problematic, but would still like to submit a proposal, is invited to
contact the ACTD
(contact details given above).

Note: if the project will involve the use of
substantial amounts of
material held in Oxford libraries, the organisers are strongly encouraged to
contact the Oxford
Digital Library/Development Fund (Norbert Lossau, Head of Oxford Digital
Library;
telephone: Oxford (2)84457, e-mail: nl@ulib.ox.ac.uk). The ACDT will be
working
collaboratively with ODL but chiefly on the development of interfaces and
learning
environments that utilise ODL materials.

DE OSMA STUDENTSHIP 2001

Amended notice

The Vice-Chancellor gives notice that he will make an appointment to the de Osma
Studentship during Michaelmas Term 2001.

The studentship is open to members of the University of Oxford who may be of either
graduate or undergraduate standing.

Candidates must send their applications to the Vice-Chancellor, University Offices,
Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD, not later than Friday, 30 November 2001,
and must include a recommendation from their tutor or supervor. The student must
undertake to study in connection with the Instituto de Valencia de Don Juan in Madrid in any

Vacation). The studentship is tenable until 31 October 2002, and may be renewed for a
second and third year. The value of the studentship is at present about œ3,000.

The Instituto is especially a centre for Spanish Art studies. It has a fine collection of
Spanish and Hispano-Mauresque ceramics and of Spanish medieval sculptures and objets

, and an outstanding library of the history of art; the library also contains a
considerable number of medieval and early-modern documents and a collection of historical
periodicals, mostly relating to the earlier periods of Spanish history. It is a tranquil place
in which students may pursue their work.

Candidates should be concerned with Spanish studies, such as Spanish art history,
Spanish language and literature, Spanish history, geography, or archaeology; they must,
when presenting their applications, provide evidence that they have sufficient knowledge of
both written and spoken Spanish to enable them to make proper use of the facilities of the
Instituto.
