Notes on the bodies concerned

The General Board of the Faculties is responsible, under Council,
for the academic administration of the University, with the duty
of considering and supervising all matters connected with the
University's research and teaching activities. It has control
of the greatest part of the University's general budget. The
Board meets weekly during term; much of its work is conducted
through committees (e.g. Planning and Development, Graduate
Studies), on which its members are expected to serve if invited
to do so.

The Hebdomadal Council is the University's chief executive body,
with statutory responsibility for the administration of the
University and for the management of its finances and property.
It has oversight of the General Board's exercise of its
responsibility for the academic administration of the University,
as well as dealing with the relationship between the University
and all external bodies. Council submits resolutions and
statutes to Congregation for approval, and has the power to make
decrees (which may be opposed in Congregation). Council meets
fortnightly during term, and twice in the Long Vacation. It has
a number of major committees, on which its members are expected
to serve if invited to do so.

CHANGE IN REGULATIONS

The following Special Regulation concerning dyslexic
candidates in University Examinations will come into
effect on 9 October.


The Proctors

Dyslexic candidates in university examinations

With effect from 1 October 1998

In EXAMINATION Decrees, 1997, p. 1084, after
l. 24 insert:

`DYSLEXIC CANDIDATES

Regulations of the Proctors

The University maintains a Register of Dyslexic Students.
To be placed on the Register, a Junior Member must
forward to the University Disability Adviser, through the
authorities of his or her college or other society, an
assessment by a qualified educational psychologist
carried out not more than six years prior to
matriculation. It is the Junior Member's own
responsibility to obtain such an assessment and to apply
for inclusion on the register prior to being entered for
any university examination for which he or she proposes
to ask (a) for special examination arrangements
relating to the dyslexia and (b) for the
condition to be taken into account as a special factor
affecting performance in that examination.

On each occasion when entering for a university
examination, a candidate who is on the Register of
Dyslexic Students may ask, through the authorities of his
or her college or other society and without submission of
further evidence (unless so required by the Proctors)
(a) for special examination arrangements
relating to the dyslexia to be made and (b) for
the condition to be brought to the attention of the
examiners as a special factor affecting performance in
that examination. Candidates on the Register of Dyslexic
Students will normally be allowed extra time in
examinations (not exceeding fifteen minutes per hour of
written paper). Requests for other special arrangements
(e.g. use of a computer, typing of illegible scripts,
exemption from a written examination) will be considered
by the Proctors on their merits. The Proctors will also
ask the relevant Chairman of Examiners to place the
following statement on the examination scripts of each
dyslexic candidate for whom special arrangements have
been approved:

This candidate is dyslexic. Problems with writing
become acute when writing under time pressure. The most
common indicators, in addition to poor general
organisation of essays, are poor sentence structure and
syntax, inappropriate use of tense, of singular and
plural, and of punctuation and capital letters. The
candidate may use inappropriate words, or in the case of
unstressed words, such as prepositions and conjunctions,
miss them out altogether. All these factors, and spelling
errors, may increase with each page of writing as fatigue
sets in, and can make the candidate's work appear
disjointed, immature, or careless. The dyslexic candidate
is not aware of these errors.

Please mark the script as it stands, but indicate to
yourself in your notes that you have marked the script of
a dyslexic candidate so that, at a later stage in the
examination, you and your fellow examiners can discuss
what, if any, account to take of the candidate's
condition for classification purposes.'

Grants and Research Funding

[Note. An asterisk denotes a reference to a previously

Return to Contents Page of this issue



GRANTS ADMINISTERED BY THE GENERAL
BOARD'S RESEARCH AND EQUIPMENT COMMITTEE

This notice summarises the arrangements for each of the grant
schemes operated by the Research and Equipment Committee. Notes
for applicants are available which contain full details of the
schemes, including the information required in applications.
Copies have been sent to departments and faculty boards. They are
also available on the Web
(http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/comm/rec.htm) or from the committee's
secretary on request (contact Ms Samantha Jones, telephone:
(2)70563, e-mail: Samantha.Jones@admin.ox.ac.uk).

Non-recurrent equipment grants

The Research and Equipment Committee will hold two non-recurrent
equipment grant competitions in 1998–9:

Week 3 of Michaelmas Term 1998 (deadline for
applications Monday, 5 October 1998)

Week 7 of Hilary Term 1999 (deadline for
applications Monday, 8 February 1999)

The original budget for non-recurrent equipment grants in
1998–9 was £408,840. This has been augmented by a
transfer of £473,970 left over after the allocation of
support grants for 1998 Joint Research Equipment Initiative
(JREI) bids. Therefore £882,810 is now
available for ordinary non-recurrent equipment grants in
1998–9. This will be divided between the two competitions
as follows: £450K for Michaelmas Term, and the
remainder for Hilary Term
. It should be noted some of the
support funds allocated for the JREI are likely to return to the
committee's budget for redistribution if some of the JREI
applications fail. Any money so freed will be used to increase
the budget for the Hilary Term round of non-recurrent equipment
grant applications. In recent years the level of demand for
non-recurrent grants has greatly increased and only
very exceptional cases are likely to receive
funding.

The JREI is principally for the science (including clinical)
departments. The committee will take into account the degree of
support provided in the JREI for some subject areas in
considering applications in the Michaelmas Term round. A degree
of favour might therefore be given to subject areas which cannot
benefit from the JREI.

Non-recurrent grants are normally given for equipment, the
cost of which is substantial in relation to a department's or
faculty board's recurrent equipment allocation. Equipment is
taken to mean items that will be used for research, teaching,
and/or administration in General Board departments or faculty
boards. Grant applications from Council departments must be
referred to the Committee for the Council Departments in the
first instance. Subject to these conditions, some priority is
given to applications for

(a) a contribution to the cost of a major piece of
equipment, which will be widely used and which by its nature is
unlikely to be provided by a research council or other outside
body;

or for

(b) a major piece of equipment for a research project
which forms the subject of an application to such bodies,
particularly where a contribution would perform a pump-priming
role.

In both cases the committee will normally expect a package deal
to be proposed in which departments make a significant
contribution to the cost.

In view of the cessation of the provision of General Board
start-up grants for new lecturers, the committee will also give
some priority to applications for equipment for new University
or CUF lecturers (defined as those in their initial period of
office before their appointment is confirmed to retiring age).

Requests for non-recurrent equipment grants must be made on
the committee's application form (available with the notes for
applicants). This must be endorsed and signed by the head of
department or faculty board chairman.

£100K in 1998–9 to support applications to:

—the Wellcome Trust scheme to support infrastructure for
biomedical research;

—the Wellcome Trust/HEFCE joint equipment initiative.

Details of these schemes may be obtained from the Wellcome
Trust. Applicants are required to submit a preliminary proposal
to the Trust in order to determine eligibility for funding.

Bids to the Research and Equipment Committee for support
funding should be made through the non-recurrent equipment grant
programme before a preliminary application is submitted to the
Wellcome Trust. The deadlines for receipt of bids are:

Monday, 21 September 1998 for Week 3 of Michaelmas
Term 1998

Monday, 8 February 1999 for Week 7 of Hilary
Term 1999

Further information about the application procedure is given
in the notes for applicants for non-recurrent equipment grants.

Special research grants

Two special research grant competitions will be held in
1998–9:

Week 7 of Michaelmas Term 1998 (deadline for
applications Monday, 2 November 1998)

Week 3 of Trinity Term 1999 (deadline for
applications Monday, 19 April 1999)

A maximum of £311,761 is available for special research
grants in 1998–9. With funding at this level only a
relatively small number of grants can be made
.

There are three categories of special research grants:

(a) pump-priming grants, intended
chiefly to fund pilot work considered as a preliminary step to
large outside grant applications.

(b) emergency grants, intended to
support, in exceptional cases, promising research
projects in serious difficulty, where a grant would enable a
project to go ahead or continue which might otherwise have to be
delayed or abandoned.

(c) matching funding for arts projects,
intended to complement research grants offered by the British
Academy or the new Arts and Humanities Research Board.

The committee does not maintain separate funds for each of the
three types of grant; all applications are considered in a
gathered field, according to their individual merits, for support
from the total sum available. At the request of the General
Board, given fulfilment of scholarly criteria for award, priority
for grants will be given to pump-priming requests which are
intended to lead directly to applications for outside sources of
support. For all three schemes very high priority will be
afforded to applications from new University and CUF lecturers.

The committee particularly wishes to encourage the submission
of applications for the support of projects in the arts. It is
therefore willing to receive applications for pump-priming grants
from individuals in the arts and from arts boards for priority
research projects. Arts boards should set any such bid in the
context of their strategies for research. Joint bids from arts
boards will also be accepted.

Eligibility for special research grants is restricted to
established academic and academic-related staff in General Board
departments and faculties. Special grants are mainly intended for
salary costs (on the research-support and technician scales).
However, in appropriate circumstances grants may be made for
consumables and travel.

All grant applications must include a statement of support
from the relevant head of department or faculty board chairman.

Bridging support

The sum of £99K has been provided in
1998–9 to continue the bridging support scheme, which has
been endorsed by the Staff Committee and the Joint Consultative
Committee with the Oxford AUT.

The scheme is intended for outside grant-funded
academic-related staff on fixed-term contracts. Funding is
available for the employment of such staff where there is a gap
between research contracts, no other source of funding exists,
and certain other conditions are satisfied. The aim is to
(a) encourage the retention of experienced and skilled
staff and (b) to avoid the traumatic and disruptive
break in employment which might be faced by such staff. It is
emphasised that bridging support is intended solely for salary
costs.

There are two modes for grants under the bridging support
scheme. Funds are available for up to six months where
further funding has been confirmed and the individual has at
least two years service in academic-related research contract
posts at the University of Oxford, or for up to three months
where further funding is yet to be confirmed and the individual
has at least six years service in academic-related contract posts
at HEIs
.

All applications must be submitted by the relevant head of
department or faculty board chairman.

Career support scheme

The sum of £102K has been made available to continue the
career support scheme, which has been endorsed by the Staff
Committee and the Joint Consultative Committee with the Oxford
AUT.

The purpose of the scheme is to enable a limited period of
continued employment for academic-related contract research
staff. Certain conditions must be satisfied, including that:

—staff members must have at least fifteen years' service in
academic-related research posts in universities and comparable
institutions;

—it is expected that their funding will be about to cease
and cannot be replaced readily despite efforts being made to do
so.

The intention is (a) to encourage the retention of
long serving, key members of staff whose research
contribution is of particular value
; and (b) to
avoid the traumatic and disruptive break in employment and career
which might otherwise be faced by such staff, while efforts are
made to secure future funding. It should be noted that career
support is intended solely for salary costs.

All applications must be made by heads of department or
faculty board chairmen.

The Research and Equipment Committee would prefer to consider
bids for bridging or career support within meetings (which are
held on Tuesdays of Weeks 3 and 7 each term). However, where
necessary, applications will be reviewed in between meetings.
