NOTICES

ALL SOULS COLLEGE

Visiting Fellowships 2001–2

All Souls College proposes to elect a number of Visiting Fellows, for periods up to one year, for the academic year October 2001 to June 2002. 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 carry out scholarly work in Oxford. In making its final choice, the college will give weight to intellectual quality, the interest and feasibility of the research project, and to the relevance for it of residence 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 expected to exceed one 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 Secretary to the Dean of Visiting Fellows, All Souls College, Oxford OX1 4AL, to whom all applications should be addressed. Applications must be received by 15 September 2000.

JESUS COLLEGE

Appointment of Junior Dean

Jesus College proposes to appoint a Junior Dean for a period of one year from 1 October 2000. The Junior Dean will be required to reside in college, free of charge, and will also receive free meals at the common table, as well as a stipend which, last year, was £1,113 per annum; there will be a small inflationary increase for 2000. The Junior Dean will assist the Dean and other college officers in the smooth running of the college. Applicants, who may be men or women, must be graduates, and it is expected that they will be pursuing advanced study or research.

The main responsibility for decanal matters in the college rests with the Dean who is a fellow of the college. The current incumbent is Dr W.R. Moore who is a fellow and Tutor in Engineering Science. In particular, the Junior Dean will normally be expected to be in college every night during the eight weeks of Full Term, and also the week before and the week after Full Term, both to act in a disciplinary role if necessary, but also to provide the first point of contact within the college in case of an emergency occurring during the night. It is a statutory requirement that a fellow, lecturer, or Junior Dean be in the college every night from 10.30 p.m. to 7 a.m.; it would, however, be possible, from time to time, for the Junior Dean to have a night off by prior arrangement with one of the resident fellows who could fulfil that requirement.

Applications, including a full curriculum vitae, should be sent to the Principal, Jesus College, Oxford OX1 3DW (telephone: (2)79718, fax: (2)79696, e-mail: gpeissel@jesus.ox. ac.uk), by Friday, 2 June. Two referees should be asked to write direct to the Principal by the same date. If the applicant is a registered graduate student, one of the referees must be the applicant's university supervisor. Short-listed candidates will be invited for interview on Wednesday, 14 June.
