Wolfson College

Wolfson/Harwell Industrial Fellowships 1997–9

Wolfson College proposes to make elections (if suitable candidates are proposed) to two two-year Wolfson/Harwell Industrial Fellowships for the academic years 1997–9. These fellowships are intended to enable those working at Harwell or in industry to come to Oxford to engage in a joint research project with a university department. Preference for one fellowship will be given to a suitably qualified candidate nominated by Harwell.

The intention is that the fellowships should give an opportunity for collaborative research which would not otherwise have taken place, but the college is prepared to receive proposals in respect of already established research projects.

Proposers will be expected to negotiate an agreement with the company by whom the candidate is employed, under which the company would continue to pay his or her full salary but would permit him or her to spend one-fifth of his/her time on a joint research project in Oxford. The college is willing to consider a variation from this pattern to suit current conditions or individual circumstances.

Wolfson College will offer up to £1,000 per annum towards any expense reasonably incurred in pursuance of the aims of the fellowship.

Applications, marked on the envelope `WHIF', should include a completed application form, a curriculum vitae of the candidate, and the names of two referees, and should be sent to the President's Secretary, Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD (telephone: Oxford (2)74102, fax: (2)74136, e-mail: sue.hales@wolfson.ox.ac.uk), by the closing date of 24 March. All enquiries should be directed to the President's Secretary, from whom application forms may be obtained.

Candidates should themselves write directly to their referees asking them without further request to send a confidential reference to the President's Secretary by the closing date (marked `WHIF' on the envelope).

Successful candidates will be notified not earlier than mid-May.
