GREEN COLLEGE

With the support of the Trustees of the E.P. Abraham Research Fund, Green College is proposing to award a new Research Fellowship in support of its interests in the history of medicine: Green College has close links with the Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine, which is developing a new programme in the history of tropical medicine and infectious diseases.

The Research Fellowship is non-stipendiary and may be held in conjunction with another appointment. Applicants who are not already funded for their research may be eligible to apply to the Wellcome Trust for an award in the history of medicine in association with this fellowship. The fellow may also be offered affiliation with the Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine in Oxford.

The fellowship is tenable for a maximum of three years and provides access to all college facilities, dining rights, and an academic expenses allowance of £250 per annum. The fellowship will be available from Michaelmas Term 1999 and selection will take place as soon as possible.

The fellowship is open to graduates of any university who are undertaking (or proposing to undertake) postdoctoral (or equivalent) research in the University. The college is looking for evidence of serious interest in and capacity for a research contribution, to be made alongside others engaged in the history of medicine in Oxford and which will further develop the college's interests in this field.

Joan and Richard Doll Clinical Tutorial Fellowship

Green College intends to appoint a Tutorial Fellow who will be responsible for the provision of additional clinical teaching to Oxford University clinical medical students who are members of the college. The appointment will be for two years initially and may be renewable for a further two years. The fellowship will be available from Michaelmas Term and selection will take place as soon as possible. It may be held in conjunction with another appointment which need not necessarily be a tenured clinical appointment. We are looking for a clinician who is actively involved in patient care in Oxford and possesses an enthusiasm for clinical teaching. Candidates from a wide range of backgrounds will be considered. The tutorial fellowship is a non-governing body fellowship which provides access to all college facilities, dining rights, and an honorarium of £2,000 per annum. The purpose of the appointment is to strengthen the support and guidance the college provides for its clinical students, particularly in the form of bedside tutorials for first-year students and revision tutorials for third years. The tutorial fellow will work closely with the Senior Tutor and with the many clinical fellows who are already providing pastoral and academic support for the college's clinical students. It is anticipated that the tutorial fellow will commit about four to six hours per week to these responsibilites.

Application forms, and further notes for applicants, are available from the Warden's Secretary (telephone: Oxford (2)74775, e-mail: jan.dean@green.ox.ac.uk). They should be returned with a full curriculum vitae to the Warden, Green College, Woodstock Road, Oxford OX2 6HG, not later than 7 October.
