Dr Chun-tu Hsueh Research and Travel Awards

The Dr Chun-tu Hsueh travel awards have been established to provide postgraduate students who are working on research degrees in any aspect of north-east, south-east, and/or south asian studies with grants towards the cost of their d.Phil. Or m.Litt. Thesis research. The maximum award available is £500.

Only students from St Antony's College who have not previously received one of these travel awards may apply. Students whose thesis deals only tangentially with Asia are not eligible for consideration. Students who are still in probationary research status or still completing the requirements of an M.Phil., M.St., M.Sc., or other taught-course degree at the time of application should be as confident as possible of securing upgrading to M.Litt. or D.Phil. status by the time of the research travel or other research activity they propose. Confirmation of upgrading will be required before any award is actually paid. Awards cannot be deferred, but anyone not securing the necessary upgrading or being otherwise unable to adhere to the terms on which the award was originally made will have the option to reapply in future.

Among the purposes for which grants may be given are: travel essential to thesis research, the acquisition of material essential to research, and the preparation of artwork or other material for inclusion in the completed thesis. Grants for subsistence will not be made; nor is funding available to present papers at conferences, except when a very strong case can be made for the relevance of such a presentation to the applicant's thesis research. Candidates are expected to apply for grants before incurring expenses.

Applications for awards are considered once a year, in Hilary Term, for travel or other research activity to commence no later than the beginning of Hilary Term the following year. Applications must be made on a form available from the Secretary of the Asian Studies Centre, St Antony's College, Oxford OX2 6JF (e-mail: asian@sant., and should be submitted by the end of the second week of Hilary Term.

Applicants are asked to name one referee, normally the thesis supervisor, who should be requested to send in a reference directly to the Secretary of the Asian Studies Centre, St Antony's College, by the deadline. A subcommittee of the Asian Studies Centre will consider the applications. It reserves the right to make no awards, in the event that no suitable applications are received. Successful candidates will be required to submit a brief report to the Asian Studies Centre on their use of the grants received, and notify the Centre upon completion of their degrees.

Research Fellowships

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 2001 (or from 1 April 2001 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 or 1 April 2001). Applications from candidates under the age of thirty are discouraged, since it is very unlikely that they will have acquired sufficient experience and seniority. (It may be more appropriate for these candidates to apply for a Junior Research Fellowship in the competition to be advertised in January.) It is a condition that the fellow should be engaged in research in Oxford.

Applications, typed or clearly printed, should include: 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 its expected duration; 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 Wednesday, 3 January 2001.

Application forms are available from the President's Secretary, Wolfson College, Oxford OX2 6UD. Please apply in person or send a self-addressed envelope.

Proposals and all supporting documentation should reach the President's Secretary by the closing date, 3 January 2001. Short-listed candidates will be notified between 15 January and 18 January, and will be invited to attend for interview in the morning of Friday, 9 February (an alternative date is unlikely to be possible).

Recommendations for election to Research Fellowships are subject to governing body approval. Successful candidates will not, therefore, by notified until after the governing body meeting in mid-March 2001.

Appointment of General Office Receptionist/Secretary

Wolfson College wishes to appoint a friendly, reliable, and enthusiastic person with good interpersonal and computing skills to join the College Secretary's team. The receptionist/secretary will assist with all aspects of the admission of students as well as providing clerical and secretarial support to college officers and staff. Hours of work: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The salary will be within the college's grade 3 range (£11,947-£13,829 per annum) with six weeks' holiday, subsidised lunches in Hall, staff pension scheme, and free parking.

Letters of application, with a curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of two referees, should reach the College Secretary (from whom further particulars can be obtained), Wolfson College, Linton Road, Oxford OX2 6UD (telephone: Oxford (2)74103), no later than Monday, 12 November.

Wolfson College is an equal opportunities employer.
