LIFE AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES BOARD

Decree

The Life and Environmental Sciences Board, with the approval of the Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council, has made the following decree, to come into effect on 11 October.

Decree (1): Establishment of M.Phil. in Medical Anthropology

Explanatory note

The following decree, made by the Life and Environmental Sciences Divisional Board, with the approval of the Educational Policy and Standards Committee of Council, establishes a new two-year taught M.Phil. in Medical Anthropology. The course is intended to build on the substantial expertise in this area which is available in the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology and in the Institute of Biological Anthropology, and is already represented by the recently established one-year taught M.Sc. course in Medical Anthropology. Both the General Board review and the plans drawn up by the divisional board have identified the establishment of this course as an academic priority. Candidates will be required to take the M.Sc. June examination (though not the 10,000-word dissertation) as the qualifying examination for the M.Phil., and submit a 30,000-word dissertation. The requirements will be on the lines of those already in place for the existing M.Phil. course in Social Anthropology.

Associated changes in regulations were published in Gazette No. 4631, 25 July 2002 (Vol. 132, p. 1561), but through oversight this decree was not included in the same issue.

OXFORD UNIVERSITY CAREERS SERVICE

CAREERS ADVICE SERVICE FOR CONTRACT RESEARCH STAFF

This service, provided by the University Careers Service at 56 Banbury Road, aims to encourage and enable academic-related research staff, employed directly by the University on fixed-term contracts (contract research staff), to make and implement well-informed decisions about their careers by:

—providing impartial, professional, careers advice;

—supporting them in recognising and developing the attributes necessary for successful career development;

—enabling them to appreciate and explore the range of opportunities available;

—assisting them to clarify their values, interests, abilities and skills and to relate these to possible career options;

—Providing access to a wide variety of careers information and resources to facilitate the formulation and implementation of career plans.

The service operates flexibly in an attempt to cater for individual personal needs, whether researchers are:

—generally uncertain about the career options open to them;

—considering reviewing or changing their career direction;

—thinking about finding a new job in academia, commerce, industry, the public sector, or becoming self-employed, etc.

Following registration with the Service (which is free) individual researchers have access to up to four, confidential, one-to-one meetings with a careers adviser to help clarify personal and career objectives and to identify the main career options open to them. They may also call in to see the Duty Adviser at the Careers Service to help resolve brief queries and make use of the wide range of careers resources in the well-resourced Information Room, including the Prospects Planner computerised careers guidance system. Psychometric ability testing and personality type profiling for career development purposes (using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) can also be arranged on an ad hoc basis. In addition, two one-day career development workshops, designed specifically for contract research staff who are looking to review their career options or to find alternative work, are run at various times throughout the year, and researchers also have access to activities in the student `Term Programme'.

Full details of the service (including how to register and book individual career discussions) can be found on www.careers.ox.ac.uk. To reserve a place on any of the career development workshops or seminars/briefings below (which are run in conjunction with the Institute for the Advancement of University Learning, IAUL)) telephone, or e-mail, the IAUL (telephone: (2)86808, e-mail: services@learning.ox.ac.uk).

Career Development Workshops

The following workshops, provided as part of the Careers Advice Service for Contract Research Staff, supplement the individual careers guidance and information provisions.

Career Review and Planning for Contract Research Staff

(Seminar Code: EFF/CAR/R)

Tuesday, 10 December 2002, 9.30 a.m.–4.30 p.m. (Week 9, MT)
Friday, 14 February 2003, 9.30 a.m.–4.30 p.m. (Week 4, HT)

This workshop has been designed specifically for academic-related contract research staff employed on fixed-term contracts by the University. It is particularly suitable for researchers, at any stage in their career, who wish to consider what their future options might be. It will provide participants with the opportunity to step back and reflect on their careers in the context of their personal experience and factors in the academic research and wider employment environment. Through a combination of short individual exercises and small (informal) group discussions participants will be encouraged to focus on the key aspects of career decision making. This will include reviewing transferable skills and considering factors affecting job mobility. By the end of the day each participant should be in a position to begin developing a personal development career plan. In addition, there will usually be the opportunity to explore the wide range of careers resources available for use by contract research staff at the Careers Service.

Job Search and Interview Skills for Contract Research Staff (Seminar Code: EFF/JIS)

Wednesday, 2 October 2002, 9.30 a.m.–4.30 p.m. (Vacation)

This workshop has been designed specifically for academic-related contract research staff employed on fixed-term contracts by the University and is particularly suitable for those who are considering, or seeking, alternative employment. While more emphasis is given to finding employment outside academic research, those intending to pursue careers in academia may also find the programme useful.

An interactive day, it will explore the skills and techniques used in searching for jobs effectively, finding sources of job information, utilising networking techniques, writing appropriate CVs and covering letters. Emphasis will be given to understanding the processes by which employers actually recruit staff and how to tailor applications accordingly. Participants will also explore the skills and attributes required for effective performance at interview: preparation, self-presentation and how to deal with typical interview questions, etc. Where possible, supportive practice in applying interview techniques will normally form part of the day and there will usually be the opportunity to explore the wide range of careers resources available for use by contract research staff at the Careers Service.

Note: the content of the above workshops may be varied in the light of feedback and other workshops may be added in due course.
