NOTICES

All Souls College

Visiting Fellowships 1999–2000

All Souls College proposes to elect a number of Visiting Fellows, for periods up to one year, for the academic year October 1999 to June 2000. These fellowships are intended to enable their holders to carry out study and research in Oxford, and to participate in the academic life of the University. Visiting Fellowships are open in all subjects, and to both men and women.

Preference will be given to candidates who will be between the ages of thirty-five and sixty-five during the relevant academic year. Applications will be considered from staff of any university or other institution of higher learning, and from other persons who wish to work on problems that can be studied with the help of the facilities offered by the college and University. In making its final choice, the college will give weight to academic quality, the interest and feasibility of the research project, and to the advantages candidates might derive from being in Oxford.

Visiting Fellows will be entitled to accommodation, a study in college, and lunches and dinners without charge. Limited financial subvention may also be offered in exceptional circumstances. In certain cases (not at present expected to exceed one in each year) such assistance may be extended to include the cost of replacement teaching at the Visiting Fellow's own institution. Any candidate desiring to take advantage of this provision should make specific application to the Dean of Visiting Fellows preferably some time before the general closing date given below.

Application forms and further particulars may be obtained from the Dean of Visiting Fellows, to whose secretary all applications should be addressed (All Souls College, Oxford OX1 4AL). Applications must be received by 15 September.
