2 The examination is open to any candidate (male or female) who either (a) has passed all the examinations required by the University for the degree of BA or (b) has been duly registered for, or been awarded, a higher degree in the University (including BCL). The college will not normally admit to the Examination, however, candidates who will have passed their twenty-sixth birthday at the time of election, or who will then have completed ten or more terms since they qualified for the degree of BA, or first registered for a higher degree in the University. Candidates who are short-listed will be required to verify their date of birth.
3 The fellowships are for seven years and cannot be extended. They are open to those who intend to pursue an academic career, and also to those who, while intending to take up non-academic work (such as the practice of the law, politics, diplomacy, etc.), nevertheless wish to maintain and strengthen their links with academic life. In the case of the latter category it is possible for those pursuing a non-academic career to comply with the college's residential requirements in the first year of fellowship by, for example, spending the weekends during term in college and the weekdays working in London.
4 During the first two years fellows receive a stipend, which they may supplement, of £9,100* per annum and, if married, may be eligible for a housing allowance of £2,892. At the end of that period the fellowship will (with the approval of the college) be extended for a further five years, during which (a) a fellow who decides to take up or continue non-academic work will receive a stipend of £1,750* per annum; (b) a fellow who decides to take up or continue academic work will receive a stipend of £12,600* per annum, rising to £16,050* per annum if a certain amount of lecturing is undertaken; otherwise the stipend will be £11,460* per annum rising to £14,610* per annum, plus in each case a housing allowance of £3,310 per annum, if eligible. As the fellowships are for fixed terms, the successful applicants will be required to sign a waiver under Section 142 of the Employment Protection (Consolidation) Act 1978.
5 A Fellow by Examination will be a member of the governing body and will be entitled to rooms, dinners, and lunches without charge. A fellow is normally required to reside (or dine) in college for at least twenty-eight days in each academical term of the first year of tenure; but the college is prepared to consider deferment of this residence in exceptional cases.
6 Prospective candidates should apply by letter to the Warden, not later than 6 September 1996, stating fully their academic and other qualifications and experience, and enclosing a letter from the candidate's collegefrom the Head of House or Senior Tutorcertifying that the applicant is a suitable candidate to sit the Examination. All correspondence should be marked `Fellowship Examination'.
7 The Warden and Chairman of Assistant Examiners will interview candidates, whose applications have been accepted, from 4.30 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. on Wednesday, 25 September and will answer any queries raised by them.
8 The examination will be held in the College Hall, starting on 26 September at 9.30 a.m. and ending on 28 September at 5 p.m.
9 The examination will consist of six papers of
three hours each:
two papers in Law, History, Philosophy, Economics, Politics, English Literature, or Classical Studies;
two general papers;
a Translation Paper with a choice of translations from Greek, Latin, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Russian into English.
Candidates may apply to have a paper in any other language that is set as a Final Honour School option. Arrangements will, if possible, be made to comply with their requests, which must be made in writing by 1 September 1996.
Specimen papers from previous years may be seen on application to the Sub-Librarian, Codrington Library, or to the Warden's Secretary. 10 A viva of short-listed candidates will be held on Saturday, 26 October, commencing at 10 a.m. All short-listed candidates will be expected to dine in college that night.
The salary would be based on the Oxford University Senior Library Administrative and Computer Staff grade 1 scale (currently in the range £14,317 to £18,294 per annum, incremental), with the point of entry based on age and experience. A formal IT qualification is not a requirement. Experience would be expected of Ethernet, the installation and running of a small area LAN and of PC hardware and software support and maintenance, all preferably in an academic environment.
Both colleges are committed to the principle of equal opportunities for employees.
Further particulars may be obtained from the Domestic Bursar, Oriel College, Oxford OX1 4EW. Applications, including a full curriculum vitae, together with the names of two referees, should be received by 1 July.
During the first year, the successful applicant will be elected to a Senior Scholarship of the college and will receive an emolument of £500 together with limited SCR rights. The person appointed will be expected to undertake up to three hours of college teaching per week in each full term which will be remunerated at the standard rates recommended by the Senior Tutors' committee.
In the second year, when the holder will presumably no longer be in receipt of a research grant, the appointment will become a stipendiary college lecturership and a salary of £5,200 will be paid.
The lecturer will be expected to use the year for furthering his or her research work and to undertake five hours of teaching per week for the college in each full term. The lecturer will be encouraged to build up a range of teaching experience, not only by giving tutorials, but also by giving classes and seminars and attending the various courses provided by the University for the training of university teachers. This experience will stand the lecturer in good stead when applying for university lecturerships.
The college has a slight preference for applicants on the interface between pure and applied mathematics. However, the major criterion governing the appointment will be overall excellence and the college is interested in receiving applications from those working in any branch of mathematics.
Anyone wishing to apply for this post is invited to send a curriculum vitae and the names of two referees to the College Secretary, St Peter's College, Oxford OX1 2DL, and to ask the referees to send references to the same address by 28 June.
It is anticipated that the short-listed applicants will be interviewed on 5 July.
