    PIRIE-REID SCHOLARSHIPS

    Applications are invited for up to two Pirie-Reid Scholarships,
    tenable at the University of Oxford, from graduates (including
    persons expecting to graduate in 2001) who intend in October 2001
    to commence working for a degree or diploma.

    Preference will be given to candidates applying from other
    universities (i.e. not already matriculated at Oxford), and to
    those domiciled or educated in Scotland. Candidates not
    fulfilling these criteria are unlikely to be successful.

    The scholarships, which are to be awarded to persons wishing
    to begin a course of study in Oxford who would otherwise be
    prevented by lack of funds, will cover university and college
    fees and provide a grant for maintenance, subject to assessment
    of other sources of income (maintenance grants for 2000--1 are
    £6,800 for postgraduate students). They will be renewable
    from year to year, subject to satisfactory progress and
    continuance of approved full-time study.

    Candidates for the Pirie-Reid Scholarships are expected to
    have applied for admission to the University in the usual way.

    Application forms may be obtained from Mrs J. Brown, Life and
    Environmental Sciences Divisional Office, 2 South Parks Road,
    Oxford OX1 3UB (telephone: Oxford (2)82464, e-mail:
    judith.brown@admin.ox.ac.uk).

    The closing date for applications is 1 May 2001.

    ROYAL COMMISSION FOR THE EXHIBITION OF
    1851


    Research Fellowships in Science or
    Engineering 2001

    This scheme is intended to give young scientists or engineers of
    exceptional promise the opportunity to conduct research for a
    further period of two years. Approximately six awards are made
    annually.

    The fellowships are open to candidates in any of the physical or
    biological sciences, mathematics, applied science, or any branch
    of engineering. Candidates in mathematics (including applied
    mathematics) and the pure sciences who wish to transfer into
    engineering or a branch of applied science are particularly
    encouraged to apply. Applicants in science subjects must have a
    doctoral degree, or be in the final stages of their doctoral
    studies which must be successfully completed before the
    provisional award of a fellowship will be confirmed. Candidates
    offering engineering must be of at least postgraduate
    standing.

    Applicants must be British citizens or citizens of the British
    Commonwealth or of the Republics of Ireland or Pakistan. They
    should preferably be less than thirty years old on 1 March
    2001.

    Candidates must be recommended by professors or heads of
    departments of HEIs in the UK. The fellowship stipend will be
    £18,000 for the first year, and £19,000 for the second
    year. Stipends are reviewed annually.

    Fellowships may be held at any institution at home or abroad
    approved by the Commissioners; they express a strong preference
    for candidates who wish to work at a university or institutions
    other than the one at which they had completed their studies. A
    conversion fellowship for mathematicians and pure scientists
    should preferably be held at an institution other than a
    university.

    Further details and application forms may be obtained from Miss
    J. Noon, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD
    (e-mail: jennifer.noon@admin.ox.ac.uk).

    Applications must be sent to the Royal Commission by 2 March
    2001. Appointments will be made in June 2001. Any queries on the
    scheme should be addressed directly to the Commission, at the
    Sherfield Building, Imperial College, London SW7 2AZ (telephone:
    020-7594 8790, e-mail: RoyalCom1851@ic.ac.uk).

    ethical requirements of the direct sales industry. If you would like me to send some
