VIOLET VAUGHAN MORGAN PRIZES
1999

The Board of the Faculty of English Language and
Literature gives notice that eight prizes on the
foundation of Mr and Mrs P. Vaughan Morgan will be
awarded in Trinity Term 1999 if suitable candidates
present themselves.

The examination will be open to members of the
University who are citizens of one of the countries of
the British Commonwealth, have not exceeded the ninth
term from their matriculation, and are reading for the
First or Second Public Examination. In awarding a prize,
in addition to scholastic acquirements, the characters of
the candidates will be taken into consideration so far as
they can be judged from a viva-voce examination and also
from their records at college, and a prize will not be
awarded to anyone who, in the opinion of the examiners,
does not show promise of becoming a loyal citizen of the
British Commonwealth.

The examination (consisting of two papers on English
Literature) will be held in the Schools on Thursday, 13
May 1999, at 9.30 a.m. and 2.30 p.m. Viva-voce
examinations will be held in the Schools on Thursday, 20
May, beginning at 9.30 a.m. The examiners intend to set
two papers (each of three hours); one composed of general
critical questions requiring no special preparation; the
other composed of three sections, (1) fourteenth- and
fifteenth-century poetry and drama, (2) drama
1580–1642, (3) Victorian poetry, of which candidates
must limit themselves to answering questions in one
section.

The prizes are of the value of £120 each. Each
prize-winner will also receive a bronze medal having on
one side a profile of Maude Violet Caroline Vaughan
Morgan, and on the other side an engraved statement of
the origin of the prizes.

Persons wishing to become candidates must apply to the
Head Clerk, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford
OX1 2JD, for a form of entry which will include a
certificate (to be signed by the head or senior tutor of
the candidate's college or society) stating that the
candidate has not exceeded the ninth term from
matriculation, is reading for the First or Second Public
Examination, and is a citizen of one of the countries of
the British Commonwealth. The completed entry forms must
be returned to the Head Clerk by Friday, 12 March 1999,
and must be accompanied by a confidential letter of
recommendation in a sealed envelope from each candidate's
tutor. The attention of tutors is drawn to the second
paragraph of this notice and to the need to comment
explicitly on non-scholastic (as well as scholastic)
acquirements.

ISIS INNOVATION LIMITED

2 South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3UB

Isis Innovation, a wholly-owned company of the
University, was established in 1988. The company has been
formed to exploit know-how arising out of research funded
by the UK Government through the Research Councils and
funded by other bodies where the rights are not tied. The
function of the company is to ensure that the results of
research bring rewards to Oxford, and to the inventors,
who are given a financial incentive for exploitation.

Isis seeks licensees willing to pay lump sums and/or
royalties for the use of know-how arising out of
research. Isis also exploits the intellectual property of
the University by setting up individual companies using
venture capital or development capital funds.

Isis' services are also available to individuals who
wish to exploit the results of research supported by non-
Research Council sources, when there are no prior
conditions on the handling of the intellectual property
rights. Isis Innovation has at its disposal a small pre-
seedcorn fund for paying the costs of protecting
intellectual property rights and for taking work to a
stage where its potential can be assessed.

Isis finds industrial partners to ensure that new
ideas can be developed for market requirements. The
company has established the Oxford Innovation Society for
major industrial companies, so that they can have a
window on Oxford technology and an opportunity to license
and invest where appropriate.

A brochure explaining Isis' activities is
available. Please contact the above address, or the
telephone and fax numbers given below.

Members of the University should contact the Managing
Director if they wish to take advantage of the services
that Isis provides. (Telephone: (2)72411; fax: (2)72412.)

OXFORD UNIVERSITY COMPUTING
SERVICES

Call for project proposals: Humanities Computing
Development Team

Proposals are invited from Oxford University Humanities
staff for IT-based teaching or research projects to be
developed between April and September 1999. Projects may
be based in any humanities subject area and can have
either a teaching or research focus; priority is given to
teaching-related projects and those with a large
potential user group, as the projects require a
substantial investment of time and effort by both
parties. The sorts of projects which would be considered
appropriate are: Web-based learning materials for
undergraduates; a Web-based database to be used by
undergraduates in their studies; making heavily-used
resources available on-line in digital format; and the
design and development of a research-oriented database or
textbase.

Current projects

The HCDT began operation in October 1998 to work with
Humanities academics within the University of Oxford on
IT-based research or teaching projects. For each project
the academic content is selected by the academic and
provided by them, whilst the design of the IT system, its
implementation and documentation is provided by the HCDT.
The four projects which are currently in progress are
based in four different Humanities faculties:
Archaeology, English, Oriental Studies (the Chinese
Institute), and Theology. As well as serving the needs of
very different subject areas, each project presents
different technical challenges: the team is making use of
networked database technology; World Wide Web delivery of
database systems; interactive systems which make use of
Perl script and Java; and investigating the delivery of
electronic documents in different Web-based systems.

Project proposal

In order to propose a project, a standard form should be
completed, providing information on what will be achieved
by the project, the quantities of materials that are
involved, and other details. The form can be downloaded
in a standard word-processor format from the Web at
http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/hcdt/, or a paper copy may be
obtained from Sarah Porter (see below). The closing date
for submission of proposals for this academic year is
Monday, 1 March.

FACULTY OF MODERN HISTORY


Bryce Research Studentship and Lothian
Studentship in History 1999

If suitable candidates present themselves, elections will be made
to a Bryce and a Lothian Studentship with effect from Michaelmas
Term 1999.

The studentships are tenable for one year, either at Oxford, or,
with the consent of the Board of Management, elsewhere. The
maximum value of either studentship will be £5,600—but
any other emoluments accruing to the student during the tenure
of the studentship will be taken into account. The Board of
Management reserves the right to determine the value of any award
within the maximum in the light of all the circumstances.

Candidates must be members of the University who are pursuing
research in either Ancient or Modern history for the degree of
Doctor of Philosophy. By the date on which they would take up the
studentship, they must have been admitted to, and not lost
subsequently, full D.Phil. status, but must normally not have
exceeded the tenth term since registration as a graduate student
of the University.

Applications must include: (a) a brief statement of the
academic career, including attainments and qualifications;
(b) a brief statement on the programme in work in
history (ancient or modern) which the candidate proposes to
undertake; (c) two confidential references (please ask
your referees to hand you their references in a sealed envelope,
with their signature across the flap); (d) a statement
of any other emoluments being applied for by the candidate.

While all applicants will be considered on their academic merits,
sympathetic consideration will be given to applicants who are
advanced in their research, and whose research would seriously
suffer from an interruption through lack of funding.

Applications, including the two sealed references (one set only,
as the Board of Management will consider each applicant for any
of the awards in its gift), should be received by Hubert M.
Stadler, Graduate Secretary, Modern History Faculty, Broad
Street, Oxford OX1 3BD, no later than Friday, 11 June.

    Research Fellows, if candidates of sufficient merit present
    themselves, without limitation of subject, for two years in the first
    instance from 1 October 1999. A fellowship is renewable for a further
    term of two years subject to satisfactory progress in research, and
    normally submission of a doctoral (or equivalent) thesis by those not
    holding a doctorate at time of election. These fellowships carry
    common table rights (up to £30 a week for meals in hall) and are
    open to both men and women. Applications from candidates over the age
    of thirty on
    1 October 1999 (thirty-two for clinically qualified
    applicants) are discouraged and consideration will only be given to
    older candidates where an unavoidable interruption of academic
    studies has occurred or their first course was extended. Preference
    will be given to candidates who have not already held a Junior
    Research Fellowship at
    another college. In non-clinical sciences, preference
    will be given to those holding a doctorate or who expect
    to hold one by October 1999. Arts candidates should
    have had at least two years' postgraduate experience by
    1 October 1999.

    Applications, typed or clearly printed, including a curriculum
    vitae
    , a completed application form and the names of three
    referees, should be sent to the President's Secretary, Wolfson
    College, Oxford OX2 6UD, by 22 March. Candidates should also include
    samples of their written work, details of the work they will be doing
    in Oxford and their means of support. Candidates should themselves
    write
    directly to their referees asking them without further
    request to send a confidential reference to the President's Secretary
    by the closing date (Monday, 22 March).

    Junior Research Fellows are not ipso facto members of the governing
    body of the college; but they are eligible to sit on nearly all
    college committees, and may be elected as representative members of
    the governing body.

    For an application form, send a self-addressed envelope to the
    President's Secretary, Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD. For all UK
    addresses outside the Oxford University Messenger area, appropriate
    postage stamps should be used. Applications and references should be
    marked on the envelope: `Ref. HUM'. References may be faxed direct to
    the President's Secretary at Oxford (2)74136.

    The timetable is as follows: closing date, Monday, 22 March (typed or
    clearly printed applications should reach the President's Secretary
    by this date); short-listed candidates will be notified during the
    week Monday, 26 April– Friday, 30 April; short-listed candidates
    will be invited to attend for interview on Wednesday, 5 May (an
    alternative date is unlikely to be possible).

    Research Fellowship in one of the
    following subjects: law; politics; economics; other social studies
    (excluding social anthropology).

    The fellowship will be for three years, to commence on 1 October 1999

    Applications are invited from men and women. Candidates should
    normally be under thirty years on 1 October 1999 and should have at

    increase in academic salaries that may come into effect. Single
    accommodation in college for the duration of the fellowship will be
    offered without charge; if double or family accommodation is

    the fellow elects not to live in college accommodation, a housing
    allowance will be paid equivalent to the current rent of a single
    room in college. Fellows are allowed up to the sum of £30 per
    week on common table. The fellow will be permitted to undertake up to
    six hours' teaching per week. The fellowship will not normally be

    fellowship is awarded to a person holding such a position, some
    adjustment in the stipend may be made. The fellow will normally be
    required to reside within twelve miles of the centre of Oxford. Any
    election made will be subject to the granting of a Work Permit, if
    applicable.

    Charter Fellowships 1999–2000

    These fellowships are designed to enable men and women working
    elsewhere, and in the earlier phases of their academic careers, to
    spend a period of research in Oxford. The college proposes to make
    elections to two Charter Fellowships, to take effect from 1 October
    1999 (or an earlier or later date at the college's discretion). Both
    fellowships will be offered in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

    Fellows will be required to reside in Oxford during the tenure of the
    fellowship and to carry out research in the University in one of the
    above fields. In selecting the fellows, preference will be given to
    men or women holding a university lecturership in the United Kingdom
    or a comparable position in other countries, but consideration will
    be given to any qualified candidate for whom a period
    of research in Oxford would be valuable. Students are not
    eligible.

    The college will make available up to £1,200 towards the
    expenses of each fellow. The sum available will be used towards
    expenses reasonably incurred in pursuance of the aims of the
    fellowship (including accommodation). It is not possible to pay
    travel expenses. The fellow will be a full member of the college,
    with the right to use all the college facilities. In addition the
    fellowship carries with it common table rights, i.e. an allowance of
    up to the sum of £30 a week for meals taken in hall. The college
    may be able to provide college accommodation, at the normal rent, for
    the fellow (and where relevant a spouse and family)
    provided that application is made immediately after the election to
    the fellowship.

    Fellows will be expected to spend at least one full university term
    in Oxford. They will be permitted to continue to hold the fellowship
    after the funds made available by the college have been used up,
    provided that the total length of the fellowship shall not exceed one
    academic year. Fellows will be expected to submit a short report at
    the end of their tenure.

    Applications should include a completed application form, a full
    curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and the names
    of two referees, and should be sent to the President's Secretary,
    Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD (marked on the envelope `CHARTER') by
    the closing date of Monday, 22 March.
    Application forms are available from the President's Secretary
    (address above).

    References: candidates should themselves write directly to their
    referees asking them without further request to send a confidential
    reference to the President's Secretary by the closing date (marked on
    the envelope `CHARTER'). References may be faxed to the number given
    below.

    Enquiries should be directed to the President's Secretary, Wolfson
    College, Oxford OX2 6UD (telephone:
    Oxford (2)74102, fax: (2)74136, e-mail: sue.hales@wolfson.

    Candidates are selected from written applications and will not be
