St Hilda's College proposes to elect an Official Fellow and Tutor in Law, with effect from 1 October 1998. This is intended to be a permanent appointment.

Only women are eligible to hold fellowships at St Hilda's College. This is a provision of the College Statutes made under the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge Act, 1923, and remains lawful by virtue of section 5 (3) of the Employment Act 1989.

Applications are invited from women able to teach for the college at least one subject for Law Moderations (Roman Law or Introduction to Law, Criminal Law, Constitutional law) and two subjects in the Final Honour School of Jurisprudence. The ability to give tutorials in one of the following subjects would be an advantage: Administrative Law, EC Law, or Jurisprudence.

The fellow will hold the title and undertake the full duties of a University (CUF) Lecturer.

Wolfson College

Non-stipendiary Junior Research Fellowships 1998

Wolfson 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 from 1 October 1998. A fellowship is renewable for a further term of two years subject to satisfactory progress in research, and normally submission of a doctoral (or equivalent) thesis by those not holding a doctorate at time of election. These fellowships carry common table rights (up to £30 a week for meals in hall) and are open to both men and women.

Applications from candidates over the age of thirty on 1 October 1998 (thirty-two for clinically qualified applicants) are discouraged and consideration will only 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 1998. Arts candidates should have had at least two years' postgraduate experience by 1 October 1998.

Applications, typed or clearly printed, including a curriculum vitae, a completed application form (see below), and the names of three referees, 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 23 March. Candidates should also include samples of their written work, 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 (see below) to the President's Secretary by the closing date (Monday, 23 March).

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.

For an application form (light green), send a self-addressed envelope to the President's Secretary. For all UK addresses outside the Oxford University Messenger area, applicants should affix appropriate postage stamps.

Applications and references should be marked on the envelope `Ref. N-S'. References may be faxed directly to the President's Secretary, to whom all enquiries should be directed.

The timetable is as follows: closing date, Monday, 23 March (typed or clearly printed applications to reach the Presiden't Secretary); short-listed candidates to be notified in the week Monday, 27 April–Friday, 1 May; interviews on Wednesday, 6 May (an alternative date is unlikely to be possible).

Charter Fellowships 1998–9 (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 1998 (or an earlier or later date at the college's discretion). Both 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 (including accommodation). 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. In addition the fellowship carries with it common table rights, i.e. an allowance of up to the sum of £30 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 include a completed application form, a full curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and the names of two referees, and should be sent to the President's Secretary at the address below (marked on the envelope `Charter') by the closing date of Monday, 23 March.

Application forms are obtainable from the President's Secretary, Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD (telephone: Oxford (2)74102, fax: (2)74136, e-mail: sue.hales@ wolfson.ox.ac.uk), to whom all enquiries should be addressed.

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 on the envelope `Charter'). References may be faxed to the number above.

Candidates will be selected from written applications and will not be called for interview. Successful candidates will be notified officially during the second half of May.

Wolfson/Harwell Industrial Fellowships 1998–2000

Wolfson College proposes to make elections (if suitable candidates are proposed) to two two-year Wolfson/ Harwell Industrial Fellowships for the academic years 1998–2000.

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 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 at the address below (marked on the envelope `WHIF') by the closing date of Monday, 23 March.

Application forms are obtainable from the President's Secretary, Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD (telephone: Oxford (2)74102, fax: (2)74136, e-mail: sue.hales@wolfson. ox.ac.uk), to whom all enquires should be directed.

References: 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.
