As in the case of Rhodes Scholars, Foundation Scholars will be selected on criteria of personality and extra-curricular interests in addition to academic excellence. They are expected to return home upon completion of their studies in Canada.

The scholarships are tenable at any Canadian University. Intending applicants are strongly advised to approach the university of their choice concerning admission in advance of the selection procedure.

There are no application forms. Enquiries and applications should be addressed to the Warden, Rhodes House, Oxford OX1 3RG. and should be submitted before 15 November.

Applications should be accompanied by: a brief curriculum vitae; a typewritten statement covering academic and other interests, desired field of study in Canada and estimated time required, intended career, etc.; and a letter of recommendation from the head of the applicant's College, together with two references from tutors or supervisors stating the applicant's qualifications for advanced work in his/her particular field at a Canadian University.

DEVELOPMENT OFFICE

Appointment of Head of Development---Medical Sciences Division

The Oxford University Development office is seeking to recruit an experienced fund-raising professional who has the tenacity, drive, and imagination to manage and lead campaigns to secure private gift support for major aspects of university activity.

The post-holder will be responsible for working with academics, other internal champions and volunteer leaders in promoting the interests of the University amongst potential donors and securing support from past and current members of the University, the corporate sector, and charitable trusts and foundations. He or she will also be responsible for stewarding his or her donors as well as maximising the development opportunities from high-profile Oxford events.

Educated to degree level, applicants should have at least five years' successful experience in major gift fund-raising, and should have experience of developing and implementing strategic plans. With a track record of building relationships at senior level, and excellent interpersonal skills, the successful applicant should have experience of working with both institutional leadership and senior business people and the ability to engage and inspire major donors to support Oxford. Only those who are able to demonstrate that they have successfully asked for money in this or other relevant fields should apply.

The role involves developing, implementing, and leading campaigns to generate private gift support for agreed priorities within the Medical Sciences Division. Currently academic groups within the division generate half of all of Oxford's external research income, making the University the leading single centre for medical research in the UK and one of the leaders in the world. The potential for private gift support from pharmaceutical and other companies, foundations and high net worth individuals is far greater for the division than for any other part of the University.

The post is on grade 4 (salary £31,715--£37,975, with a discretionary range of £38,923--£43,317).

Further particulars are available from Melanie Holdak (telephone: Oxford (2)70120, e-mail: posts@admin.ox.ac.uk), or from http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/fp/.

Pengelly, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD, by no later than noon on 23 July.


RESEARCH SERVICES

Appointment of Project Implementation Manager (eighteen months' fixed term)

Research Services is looking for a bright, flexible team player to join its new, five-member dedicated Project Team which will be managing the introduction of two key changes over the next eighteen months. This includes the acquisition of a new knowledge management system to support the core objectives and the work of the office.

The Project Implementation Manager will play a key role in the Project Team. Working with the Programme Manager, he or she will be responsible for ensuring that both projects are managed effectively and are delivered on time. The Project Implementation Manager will be responsible for project planning and documentation, risk management, user testing, and the development and delivery of training. The post-holder will be expected to get involved in all aspects of the projects' implementation and should therefore thrive on multitasking and teamwork.

Applicants should have: degree level education or above; at least two years' experience in planning or project implementation or delivery; a high level of computer literacy as a user; experience of communicating/providing training to a wide or varied audience; good oral and written communication skills; an ability to relate to people at all levels; proven experience of prioritising conflicting workloads; experience of teamwork.

The post will be on the academic-related administrative grade 2 scale (salary £21,852--£28,279 per annum---pay award in August).

Further particulars, including details of how to apply, are available at http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/fp/, or from Melanie Holdak (telephone: Oxford (2)70120, e-mail: posts@admin.ox.ac.uk). The closing date for this post is midday on Friday, 6 August. Interviews will be held on Wednesday, 18 August.
