PERSONNEL COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL

Decree

The Personnel Committee of Council has made the following decree, to come into effect on
23 November.


Decree (6): Clinical Tutors and Clinical Lecturers

Explanatory note

The Medical Sciences Board has agreed that certain clinical tutorships which were regarded
as training posts and accompanied by honorary NHS contracts as Specialist Registrars should
no longer be at training level. In the past, appointments to these posts were made on the
same
basis as regards the period of appointment as those to clinical lecturerships, namely an initial
period of three years followed by reappointment after review for a further three years. The
following decree, made by the Personnel Committee of Council on the recommendation of
the Medical Sciences Board, provides for clinical tutors in appropriate circumstances to be
appointed for a fixed term of five years accompanied by an honorary NHS consultant
contract.

Text of Decree (6)

In Ch. VII, Sect. V (Statutes, 2000, p. 526), delete § 4 and substitute:

`§ 4. Clinical Tutors and Clinical Lecturers

1. Clinical tutors and clinical lecturers shall be appointed by the Medical Sciences
Board.

2. The board may appoint a clinical tutor or a clinical lecturer in a subject under its
supervision on such terms as to duties and tenure as the board may determine, subject to the
following conditions.

(1) Such an appointment shall be made either

(a) for an initial term not exceeding three years, at the end of which
the
person concerned shall be eligible for reappointment for a further period or periods not
exceeding three years in total; the total period of service as a clinical tutor in a training post
and the total period of service as a clinical lecturer shall not exceed six years in each case,
except that such a post-holder who has held for not more than three years a post which is not
recognised for the purposes of higher professional training may be appointed for a period not
exceeding six years to a post which is so recognised; or

(b) in the case of a clinical tutorship held in conjunction with an
honorary
consultant appointment in the National Health Service, for a fixed and non-renewable term
of five years.

(2) The appointment or reappointment of a clinical tutor in a training grade or of a
clinical lecturer shall be made on the recommendation of a committee appointed by the
divisional board and consisting of not less than five persons including the head of department
concerned, a medically qualified representative nominated by the appropriate hospital
authority, and the Director of Clinical Studies.

(3) The appointment of a clinical tutor with an honorary NHS consultant appointment
shall be made on the recommendation of a committee appointed by the divisional board and
consisting of not less than five persons including the head of department concerned, a
medically qualified representative nominated by the hospital authority, and the Director of
Clinical Studies.

3. A clinical tutor or a clinical lecturer may either receive no personal stipend, or
receive
a stipend on scales as determined by Council from time to time, except that:

(1) the divisional board shall have power to assign a stipend to such a person without
placing him or her on an incremental scale;

(2) the divisional board may reduce the stipend having regard to any other office,
except
the office of Proctor or Assessor, or to any other employment for which he or she receives
remuneration.

4. Clause 3 above shall not apply to the Litchfield Lecturers, whose stipends, duties,
and
conditions of tenure shall be as fixed by the decree concerned.'

GUIDELINES FOR LEAVE FOR ACADEMIC
STAFF


1. Approval of applications for leave

All applications for leave from normal academic duties (sabbatical leave, leave to hold
research awards, special leave etc.) must be accompanied by a recommendation from the
individual's department or faculty board, as appropriate, and must also be approved by the
divisional board which now has the authority to grant leave.



2. Sabbatical leave and dispensation from CUF
lecturing
obligations

The University's regulations in respect of sabbatical leave and dispensation from CUF
lecturing duties are set out in Ch. VII, Sect. I (Statutes, 2000, pp. 372--4). Application forms
and advice on individuals' entitlement may be obtained from Mrs Seidler at the University
Offices, Wellington Square (telephone: (2)70016, e-mail Ingunn.Seidler@admin.ox.ac.uk).
Completed application forms (signed by the head of department where appropriate) should
be
returned to Mrs Seidler for processing and for faculty board/divisional board approval. In
the
case of the Mathematical and Physical Sciences Division, application forms are available
from
the office of the head of department, to which they should be returned for initial processing.



3. Applications for leave to hold some public offices

Applications for leave to accept an appointment in the public service of national or
international importance are normally granted by the divisional board, provided that:

—the purpose of the leave can be shown to be compatible with the academic interests
of the department or faculty;

—the department or faculty (and the college in the case of joint appointments) supports
the application and is able to cover the individual's duties including examining and graduate
supervision;

—it is clear that the individual intends to return to university service after the period
of
leave.

Applications for leave to hold such offices should be made to the divisional secretary, faculty
board secretary, or other officer as notified locally.



4. Applications for certain research awards

Applications to national bodies for prestigious and competitive research awards (e.g. British
Academy Research Readerships and Senior Research Fellowships, AHRB Research Leave
awards, EPSRC Senior or Advanced Fellowships) are normally granted by the divisional
board provided that the department or faculty (and the college in the case of joint
appointments) supports the application and that appropriate arrangements can be made to
cover the individual's duties, including examining and graduate supervision, should the
application be successful. Completed application forms (including any annexes) should be
forwarded to Mrs Iredale at the University Offices, Wellington Square (telephone: (2)70017,
e-mail: Eileen.Iredale@admin) well before the closing date for processing and for divisional
board approval. Applications from CUF lecturers are normally sent to the awarding body by
the college (but must have divisional board approval beforehand); applications from other
staff
are normally forwarded to the awarding body by Mrs Iredale.



5. Applications for special unpaid leave

Applications for leave for any other purpose other than those outlined above are initially
considered in terms of sabbatical leave—i.e. if an individual applies for leave under this
section in a term for which he or she would be entitled to take sabbatical leave, any leave
granted for that term will be granted as sabbatical leave. If the individual does not have
sufficient sabbatical entitlement to cover the period of leave requested, sabbatical leave may
be granted in advance of entitlement; in other words, sabbatical leave will be granted for a
term which the applicant would not normally be entitled to take as sabbatical, the leave in
question being deemed to be taken in a later term (normally not more than six terms later).
In this way the leave will count against the individual's normal sabbatical entitlement and will
not be in addition to it. For sabbatical leave to be granted in advance of entitlement, an
academic case must be made by the department or faculty board to the divisional board.

Once an individual's entitlement to sabbatical leave (including leave in advance of
entitlement) has been exhausted, an application has to be considered in whole or in part as
an
application for special leave. Such applications must have the support of the department or
faculty (and the college in the case of joint appointments) and it must be clear that the
individual's duties, including examining and graduate supervision, can be covered
satisfactorily. The main criterion, however, for the grant of special leave, is the academic
benefit to the University (as opposed to the individual) of the leave and it is for the
department or faculty board to make the case for such benefit to the divisional board. Where
there is no case, or where the case is not persuasive, special leave will not be granted.

Applications for special leave cover many kinds of situation. One example would be an
unrepeatable opportunity to pursue academic interests at a time when the individual is
ineligible for sabbatical leave. In such cases the department or faculty board would have to
demonstrate the academic advantages to the University of the opportunity, and would have
to explain why it could not be taken at a later period when the individual would be entitled
to sabbatical leave. Another example would be a need to undertake fieldwork for a period
exceeding one year, which could not therefore be accommodated within the usual sabbatical
leave provisions. In such cases it would be expected that the individual would take as much
of the leave as possible as sabbatical or sabbatical in advance of entitlement, and once again
the academic benefit to the University would have to be demonstrated.

Very occasionally applications are made for leave to enable an individual to accept an
appointment in another academic institution (other than routine visiting appointments held
during sabbatical leave). In such instances, in order for the application to be successful, the
department or faculty board would need to make an extremely convincing case as to the
desirability of the individual being offered reversionary rights to his or her university post.
Factors to be taken into account would include all relevant circumstances relating to the
individual's role within the department or faculty, and the consequences in terms of refilling
the post were the leave to be refused and the individual to resign. It should be noted that, if
leave is granted, and the individual subsequently resigns during the period
of
leave or at the end of it, the uncertainty about the long- term filling of the post will be
exacerbated. The longer the appointment at the other institution, the less likely it is that leave
will be granted. Leave will not be granted, except in the most truly exceptional
circumstances, to enable an individual to decide whether to accept a
permanent
post elsewhere.

It is recognised that some offers are made to individuals at short notice. Given the fact
that all members of the academic staff have clear obligations to the University under the
terms
of their contracts, no such offer should be accepted without the support of the department or
faculty and the explicit approval of the divisional board. It is essential, therefore, that any
prospect of such an offer is discussed, in confidence, with the divisional secretary or faculty
board secretary at the earliest opportunity so as to avoid delays, and the possibility of refusal,
if a firm offer is then made at very short notice.

All applications for special unpaid leave should be made to the divisional secretary,
faculty board secretary, or other officer as notified locally, who will also be able to advise
on
the likelihood of success of any application. In the case of joint appointments, the college
must also be involved.



6. Stipendiary arrangements

Sabbatical leave and dispensation from CUF lecturing duties: leave will be granted with
stipend (although it may be granted without stipend if taken for the purpose of holding a
remunerated visiting appointment under 5 above).

Leave to hold a public office: leave will be granted without stipend.

Leave to hold a research award: the arrangements vary depending on the regulations
governing the award, but it is normal for individuals holding such awards to continue to
receive their usual university stipend, the awarding body either providing funds to make a
replacement appointment or reimbursing the University for the individual's salary costs.

Special leave: leave will normally be granted without stipend.



7. Implications for future entitlement to sabbatical
leave or
dispensation from CUF lecturing duties

Special leave does not count as qualifying service for the purposes of calculating future
entitlement to sabbatical leave or dispensation from CUF lecturing duties. However it does
not count against an individual's future entitlement. When special leave has been granted for
the purposes of holding a public office or a research award, sabbatical leave is not normally
granted in the period immediately preceding or following the period of special leave,
although
some flexibility may be exercised at the divisional board's discretion in respect of periods
of
special leave not exceeding one year, especially in connection with the holding of research
awards.

RESEARCH SERVICES OFFICE

The Oxford University Research Services Office (RSO) is based in
the University Offices, Wellington Square (with satellite offices
in the Medical School Offices of the John Radcliffe Hospital and
at 9 Parks Road). The RSO is part of the Finance Division of the
University's central administration.

The RSO is authorised to process all applications to outside
bodies for research grants and to sign research-related
agreements on behalf of the University. It can also provide
advice for those seeking external research funding or requiring
information about specific initiatives (e.g. LINK, EU research
programmes, etc.).

Research-related contracts with industry and other external
sponsors are negotiated through the RSO. Such contracts include
agreements covering the sponsorship of research, collaborative
research, clinical trials, services to industry, intellectual
property issues, confidentiality issues, material transfer, and
consultancy.

The RSO produces a weekly electronic bulletin of funding
opportunities with forthcoming deadlines for applications,
electronic Research Funding News (eRFN), which is available to
members of the University via the Internet at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/erin/. To receive a weekly e-mail
summarising the contents of the bulletin, please contact Ellen
McAteer, Information Assistant in the RSO (e-mail:
ellen.mcateer@admin.ox.ac.uk, telephone: (2)70082). Non-funding
research-related information is publicised via the RSO's
Web-based Bulletin Board, which is also available to members of
the University at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/oxonly/bboard.htm.

Contact details for certain members of the RSO are as
follows:

Ms Catherine Quinn, Director (telephone: (2)70158, e-mail:
catherine.quinn@admin.ox.ac.uk)

Dr Richard Liwicki, Head of Research Contracts Administration
(telephone: (2)70011, e-mail: richard.liwicki@admin.ox.ac.uk)

Mr Pierre-Manuel Espinasse, Head of Research Grants
Administration (telephone (2)70043, e-mail:
pierre.espinasse@admin.ox.ac.uk)

Dr Michael Halsey, Assistant Registrar (Clinical Research Grants
and Contracts), John Radcliffe Hospital satellite office
(telephone: (2)22604, e-mail: michael.halsey@admin.ox.ac.uk)

General enquiries may be addressed, in the first instance, to Mrs
Jane Taylor (telephone: (2)70143), who will be pleased to direct
calls to the appropriate member of staff. Further information
about the Research Services Office is available from the Web
site: http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/.

Submitting research grant applications to external sponsors

All applications for external research funding must be endorsed
by the University before they are despatched to the sponsor,
whether or not this is required by the funding body. In order to
do this, the University requires all applications made to funding
bodies (such as the research councils, government departments,
UK and overseas charities and foundations, and industry) to be
checked and endorsed by the Research Services Office (RSO) on
behalf of the University. The reasons for this are to ensure
that:

—the funds requested are sufficient to cover the research
being undertaken (e.g. that correct and up-to-date salary scales
have been used);

—the costing rules of the University have been applied
correctly (e.g. that the appropriate level of indirect costs have
been applied);

—the guidelines of the funding body have been followed
correctly (e.g. that the funds requested may be used for the
purpose proposed); and

—the University would be in a position to accept the grant
should the application be successful (e.g. that appropriate
facilities are available to house the project, or that the
proposed research does not contravene University policy).

In addition, the RSO can:

—advise on the factors which should be taken into
consideration when costing research projects,

—provide information on funding body guidelines, and

—advise on the completion of the necessary application and
internal forms prior to submission to the RGO.

The administrative arrangements for submitting research funding
applications are available from the RSO's Web site at
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rso/oxonly/rgo/office.htm. In summary,
these are as follows: applicants should submit the original plus
one copy of their application, together with a completed copy of
the University's Outside Grants (OG) form, to the Research
Services Office, Wellington Square (telephone: (2)70146), or, in
the case of certain clinical departments, to the RSO satellite
office at the Medical School Offices of the John Radcliffe
Hospital (telephone: (2)20311), leaving three clear working days
for it to be processed.

In connection with the acceptance of research awards and
signature of research-related contracts it should be noted that
Statutes, Tit. X, cl. 3, provides that `no official of the
University or any other person employed by the University or
working in or in connection with any department of or under the
control of the University shall in connection with any invention,
discovery, or patent, or ... process, or manufacture have
authority to make any representations on behalf of the University
or to enter into any contract on behalf of the University or to
be concerned in any transaction whatsoever in connection
therewith on behalf of the University except with the express
consent of Council'.

Enquiries relating to the day-to-day processing of research
grant applications should be addressed to the RSO's Research
Grants Office (telephone: (2)70146, e-mail:
research.services@admin.ox.ac.uk), or, in the case of certain
clinical departments, to the RSO satellite office, the Medical
School Offices, Level 3, John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington
(telephone: (2)22544).

the International Office can assist students wishing to contact
any of these universities to arrange attachments. For exchanges
taking place under the COIMBRA agreement, fees may be waived by
the host.



SOCRATES-ERASMUS

The SOCRATES-ERASMUS scheme offers undergraduate and graduate
students the opportunity to undertake a period of study of
between three and twelve months in another EU or EEA state.
Exchanges are organised on a faculty and departmental basis. A
number of links exist between Oxford and other European
universities; students who are interested in taking part in an
exchange should contact their department or faculty, or the
International Office to establish whether an exchange arrangement
exists for the subject area and country of their choice. Under
the scheme, students are exempt from all tuition fees at the host
institution (although students may still be liable for Oxford
fees), and in addition receive a small grant towards living
costs.

Further details of the above awards are available from the
International Office, University Offices, Wellington Square,
