Keeley Visiting Fellowship

Wadham College proposes to elect a distinguished visitor to Oxford to a Visiting Fellowship for all or part of the academic year 2000–1. The fellowship, which is for a scholar who will already have full financial support, is intended to provide the visitor with a social base where he or she can meet academics with a broader range of interests than might otherwise be likely within a single faculty or department. Nominations are invited from faculties or departments, and from individual senior members of the University. The Visiting Fellow will be a member of the college's senior common room and will be entitled to lunch or dinner free of charge at common table. Some secretarial help will be available from the Fellows' Secretary, and a small allowance will be available for certain academic expenses. Accommodation is not provided. The fellowship is open to scholars in any subject.

Nominations should be sent to the Warden's Secretary, Wadham College, Oxford OX1 3PN, before 21 January. These should include a curriculum vitae, a list of key publications, and a brief statement by the candidate of the work to be pursued in Oxford. This should be supported by a letter of recommendation from the nominator and by two other references from outside Oxford.

Candidates should please ask their referees to send their references direct to the Warden's Secretary by the same date. The college expects to make an election on 8 March 2000.

Research Fellowships 2000

Wolfson College proposes to elect up to three non-stipendiary Research Fellows, if candidates of sufficient merit present themselves, without limitation of subject, for four years in the first instance (renewable up to a total of seven years), from 1 October 2000 (or from 1 April 2000 by arrangement).

Research Fellowships are intended for those whose careers are progressing to a point where they are becoming established scholars in their field. Candidates should normally be under forty years of age at the time of appointment (1 October 2000). Applications from candidates under the age of thirty are discouraged, since it is very unlikely that they will have acquired sufficient experience and seniority (and for whom Junior Research Fellowships are usually more appropriate—to be advertised in January). It is a condition that fellows should be engaged in research in Oxford.

Applications, typed or clearly printed, should include the following: a completed application form (see below); a curriculum vitae; a list of publications; full details of the candidate's current status or position in Oxford, and expected duration of the position; a research programme; and the names of three referees.

Candidates should themselves write directly to their referees, asking them without further request to send a confidential reference to the President's Secretary, Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD (fax: Oxford (2)74136), by the closing date of Tuesday, 4 January.

Application forms are available from the President's Secretary. Applicants should apply in person or send a self-addressed envelope.

The timetable is as follows: proposals and all supporting documentation should reach the President's Secretary by the closing date of Tuesday, 4 January; short-listed candidates will be notified in the week beginning Monday, 17 January; interviews will be held in the morning of Friday, 11 February (an alternative date is unlikely to be possible).

Recommendations for election to Research Fellowships are subject to governing body approval, and successful candidates will be notified after the governing body meeting in mid-March.
