    RECOGNITION OF DISTINCTION 1998–9:
    SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS

    Corrigenda

    In Supplement (1) to Gazette No. 4521, 23 September 1999
    (`Recognition of Distinction 1998–9: successful applicants'), p. 41, the
    announcements concerning Mr S. Stokes (Reader in Quaternary Environmental
    Change) and Mr R.J. Whittaker (Reader in Biogeography) were incorrectly
    listed under `Anthropology'. Both announcements should have appeared under
    the heading `Anthropology and Geography'.

    Return to List of Contents of this section



    DISTINCTIONS EXERCISE 1999–2000

    Although formal confirmation of the arrangements for the next exercise for the
    recognition of distinction cannot be given until after the meeting of Council
    on 11 October, the Chairman of the General Board has agreed that all potential
    applicants should be alerted now to the likelihood that the timetable for the
    exercise will be as last year. Thereafter, the closing date for applications to
    be received by the Secretary of Faculties will probably be Friday, 19
    November. Those thinking of applying are asked therefore to keep this date
    in mind.

    Detailed arrangements will probably not be different from those in 1998–9.
    All applications (including resubmissions) should be confined to
    twelve single sides of A4 and should be in the form of a curriculum
    vitae
    arranged under the following headings:

    (1) Title applied for (those holding neither title should indicate whether
    either title would be acceptable).

    (2) Basic curriculum vitae information such as date of birth,
    employment history, and current post.

    (3) University lectures and classes given (over the last three years or
    such period as may be required to demonstrate fulfilment of the criteria
    relating to teaching, administration, etc.).

    (4) Graduate supervision and other graduate teaching undertaken (over the
    last three years or such period as may be required to demonstrate fulfilment
    of the criteria relating to teaching, administration, etc.).

    (5) University examining (over the last three years or such period as may
    be required to demonstrate fulfilment of the criteria relating to teaching,
    administration, etc.).

    (6) University administration (over the last three years or such period as
    may be required to demonstrate fulfilment of the criteria relating to teaching,
    administration, etc.).

    (7) Undergraduate teaching for college(s) (over the last three years or
    such period as may be required to demonstrate fulfilment of the criteria
    relating to teaching, administration, etc.).

    (8) College administration (over the last three years or such period as may
    be required to demonstrate fulfilment of the criteria relating to teaching,
    administration, etc.).

    (9) Advanced study and research, including publications, grants, etc.

    (10) Future plans for research.

    Applicants should asterisk their six most significant publications on their
    publication list.

    As in previous rounds, applicants employed by the University should name
    three referees, one of whom must be the head of the applicant's college. Where
    a university employee has no college fellowship, the names of only two
    referees (including one external) are required. For applicants not employed by
    the University, the names of three referees must be given, of whom one must
    be external to Oxford and one must be a representative of their employer.

    Titles will take effect from 1 October 2000.

    Full details will be circulated as soon as final decisions have been made, and
    formal applications should not be made before then.

    ASSOCIATION OF UNIVERSITY TEACHERS

    The Association of University Teachers is both a professional association and
    a trade union, committed to the advancement of university education and
    research. At the national level, the AUT is the recognised union for academic
    and academic-related staff. Besides its concern for more general questions of
    university education and research, the AUT negotiates salary levels and
    conditions of employment with the Committee of Vice-Chancellors and
    Principals.

    The Oxford branch of the AUT is open for membership to university and
    college employees, whether academic or academic-related. It has over 900
    members. It is the official body with which the University discusses priorities
    and problems bearing on education and research, and negotiates solutions to
    them. Discussions between the Oxford AUT and university officers occur
    formally once per term at a meeting of a Joint Consultative Committee, but
    there are many other informal meetings to discuss particular problems,
    including those affecting the conditions of employment of academic and
    academic-related staff, such as the `waiver clause' for those employed on
    contract grants. The local AUT also provides confidential advice on problems
    relating to terms and conditions of employment.

    Application for membership and other enquiries can be made to Mrs Anne
    Hendry, Administrative Secretary, Oxford AUT, New Barnett House, 28 Little
    Clarendon Street, Oxford OX1 2HY (telephone and fax: (2)70418, e-mail:
    aut@ermine.ox.ac.uk) (9.30 a.m.--4.30 p.m., Tuesday–Thursday).

    Enquiries may also be directed to Terry Hoad (Honorary Secretary), St
    Peter's College (telephone: (2)78888, e-mail: terry.hoad@spc.ox.ac.uk), or Denis
    O'Driscoll, Department of Biochemistry (telephone: (2)75260).

    General meetings of the Oxford AUT take place on Tuesday of third week
    in each term. The Michaelmas Term meeting will be held at 1.15 p.m. on
    Tuesday, 26 October, in Blackhall, Queen Elizabeth House, 21 St Giles'. All AUT
    members and non-members will be welcome.

    Postdoctoral Research Fellowships

    Applications are invited from graduates from any country wishing to
    undertake research in the social sciences. The main interests of the college
    are in economics, politics, and sociology, but these are broadly construed to
    include, for example, recent history, social and medical statistics, econometrics,
    international relations, and social psychology. Candidates should normally, by
    1 October 2000, have completed, or be close to completing, a doctoral thesis.

    To be eligible, candidates should not, by that date, have spent more than a

    have not yet completed their doctorate receive a grant of £8,289. Fellows
