The lecturer will be responsible for the teaching of undergraduates reading German either as a single subject, or with another modern language, or with Classics, English, History or Philosophy. The lecturer will be required to teach language classes and to supervise the oral tuition offered by the German lektor. The lecturer will also be required to offer teaching for a substantial number of literary topics from the period 1730 to the present. In addition to teaching duties, the lecturer will be expected to set and mark college examinations to participate in admissions and in the routine administration of German in collaboration with colleagues in other languages in the two colleges, and to assist in the pastoral care of undergraduates reading German.

The post might suit someone who is about to complete or has recently completed a doctoral thesis. There is no age limit for applicants. The salary offered is £10,500. The lecturer will be offered certain dining rights in both colleges and a teaching room in Keble College.

Further details are available from the Warden's Secretary, Keble College, Oxford OX1 3PG.

Glaxo Graduate Scholarship in Medicine (Second BM) 1996

The college proposes to elect a Glaxo Graduate Scholar in Medicine. This year, the scholarship will be awarded to a graduate undertaking the Second BM course. Applications are invited from graduates who, having already completed an honours degree in another field, are now completing the pre-clinical course (First BM). Before applying, applicants must have been accepted by the Oxford Medical School for the clinical course (Second BM) starting in October 1996.

Limited senior common room dining rights are also granted to scholars. There are fifteen flats for married graduates nearby.

The scholarship, worth £3,500 per annum, will be tenable from 1 October 1996 for three years.

Wolfson College

Non-stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships 1996

The college proposes to elect up to twelve non-stipendiary Junior Research Fellows, if candidates of sufficient merit present themselves, without limitation of subject, for two years in the first instance (renewable for not more than one further two-year term), from 1 October 1996. These fellowships carry common table rights (up to £28 a week for meals in hall) and are open to both men and women. Candidates should normally be under the age of thirty on 1 October 1996 (thirty-two for clinically qualified applicants) but consideration will be given to older candidates where an unavoidable interruption of academic studies has occurred or their first course was extended. Preference will be given to candidates who have not already held a Junior Research Fellowship at another college. In non-clinical sciences, preference will be given to those holding a doctorate or who expect to hold one by October 1996. Arts candidates should have had at least one year's research experience.

Junior Research Fellows are not ipso facto members of the governing body of the college; but they are eligible to sit on nearly all college committees, and may be elected as representative members of the governing body.

Applications, typed or clearly printed, including a curriculum vitae, a completed application form, and the names of three referees, should be sent to the President, Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD, by 25 March. Candidates should give details of the work they will be doing in Oxford and their means of support. Candidates should themselves write directly to their referees asking them without further request to send a confidential reference to the President by the closing date (Monday, 25 March). Applications and references should be marked on the envelope `Ref.: N-S'.

Application forms may be obtained by sending a self- addressed envelope (including those in the Oxford University Messenger Area), stamped for UK residents, to the President's Secretary, Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD. References may be faxed direct to the President on Oxford (2)74136.

The timetable for the fellowships is: typed or clearly printed applications should reach the President by the closing date of Monday, 25 March; short-listed candidates will be notified during the week commencing Monday, 22 April; interviews will be held on Wednesday, 1 May (an alternative date is unlikely to be possible).

Stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship 1996 in Humanities

The college proposes to make one election to a stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship in the following subject: History, medieval and modern. This will be understood to cover the history, since c.450 ad, of all parts of the world with the exception of the Indian sub-continent (for which the college makes separate arrangements), and to include archaeology .

The fellowship will be for three years, to commence on 1 October 1996 or as soon as possible thereafter. The person elected will be required to carry out research in Oxford in the above field.

Applications are invited from men and women. Candidates should normally be under thirty years on 1 October 1996 and should have at least two years' research experience in the subject. Preference will be given to candidates who have not already held a stipendiary Junior Research Fellowship at another college.

The annual stipend will be £9,797 plus any general percentage increase in academic salaries that may come into effect. Single accommodation in college for the duration of the fellowship will be offered without charge; if double or family accommodation is required, a charge will be made equal to the difference in rents. If the fellow elects not to live in college accommodation, a housing allowance will be paid equivalent to the current rent of a single room in college. Fellows are allowed up to the sum of £28 per week on common table. The fellow will be permitted to undertake up to six hours' teaching per week. The fellowship will not normally be tenable with another stipendiary position: if, exceptionally, the fellowship is awarded to a person holding such a position, some adjustment in the stipend may be made. The fellow will normally be required to reside within twelve miles of the centre of Oxford.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a description in detail of the proposed research and the candidate's qualifications for undertaking it, specimens of the candidate's written work up to a total length of 10,000 words, the names of three referees, and a completed application form. Applications and references should be marked on the envelope `Ref.: H'.

Application forms may be obtained by sending a self- addressed envelope (including those in the Oxford University Messenger Area), stamped for UK residents, to the President's Secretary, Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD.

Candidates should themselves write directly to their referees asking them without further request to send a confidential reference to the President by the closing date of Monday, 25 March. References may be faxed direct to the President on Oxford (2)74136.

The timetable for the fellowships is: typed or clearly printed applications should reach the President by the closing date of Monday, 25 March; short-listed candidates will be notified during the week commencing Monday, 22 April; interviews will be held on Thursday, 2 May (an alternative date is unlikely to be possible).

Charter Fellowships 1996–7 in the Humanities and Social Sciences

These fellowships are designed to enable men and women working elsewhere to spend a period of research in Oxford. The college proposes to make elections to two Charter Fellowships, to take effect from 1 October 1996 (or an earlier or later date at the college's discretion). Two fellowships will be offered in the humanities and social sciences. Fellows will be required to reside in Oxford during the tenure of the fellowship and to carry out research in the University in one of the above fields. In selecting the fellows, preference will be given to men or women holding a university lecturership (or comparable position) in the United Kingdom or elsewhere, but consideration will be given to any qualified candidate for whom a period of research in Oxford would be valuable. Students are not eligible.

The college will make available up to £1,200 towards the expenses of each fellow. The sum available will be used towards expenses reasonably incurred in pursuance of the aims of the fellowship. It is not possible to pay travel expenses. The fellow will be a full member of the college, with the right to use all the college facilities. The fellowship carries with it common table rights, i.e. up to the sum of £28 a week for meals taken in hall. The college may be able to provide college accommodation, at the normal rent, for the fellow (and where relevant a spouse and family) provided that application is made immediately after the election to the fellowship. Fellows will be expected to spend at least one full university term in Oxford. They will be permitted to continue to hold the fellowship after the funds made available by the college have been used up, provided that the total length of the fellowship shall not exceed one academic year. Fellows will be expected to submit a short report at the end of their tenure.

Applications should be sent to the President's Secretary, Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD, to arrive not later than Monday, 18 March. Applications (marked on the envelope `Ref.: Charter') should contain a full curriculum vitae and a list of publications, and the names of two referees. Candidates should themselves write to their referees asking them to send a reference to the President, marked `Ref.: Charter'. Alternatively, references may be faxed direct to the President on Oxford (2)74136.
