NOTICES

EXETER COLLEGE

Senior Scholarship in Theology

Exeter College proposes to elect a graduate to a Senior Scholarship in Theology from 1 October 2001. The Scholar is to study for the Final Honour School of either Theology or Philosophy and Theology.

The value of the scholarship will be determined by the college in the light of the scholar's financial circumstances, but may, in appropriate cases, cover all college and university fees for a `home' or EC student, and provide a maintenance grant of approximately £3,725. The scholarship is open to both men and women. The successful candidate shall hold, or expect to hold by the time of admission to the scholarship, at least a second-class honours degree in a subject other than Theology.

Applications, with a curriculum vitae and two academic references, should reach the Chaplain, Exeter College, Oxford OX1 3DP, by 26 January (telephone: Oxford (2)79610, fax: (2)79630). Exeter College is an equal opportunities employer.

JESUS COLLEGE

Tutorial Fellowship in Philosophy

Applications are invited for a Tutorial Fellowship in Philosophy from 1 October 2001. The fellowship will be held in conjunction with a Titular University Lecturership (CUF), for which no separate application is required.

The successful applicant will be expected to undertake research, will be responsible for the organisation of Philosophy teaching in the college and will be expected to teach undergraduates reading for the Honour Schools of PPE, Literae Humaniores, and any Joint School involving Philosophy. The college's principal teaching requirements are in the following papers: Mill's Utilitarianism, Descartes' Meditations and Elementary Formal Logic for Mods and Prelims; Ethics, History of Philosophy from Descartes to Kant, Knowledge and Reality, Philosophy of Religion, and Philosophy of Mind for Finals; ability to teach other special courses would also be an asset.

The combined college and university salary will be according to age on a scale up to £39,564 per annum (subject to review with effect from April 2001). Additional college allowances are available. Further particulars, containing details of the duties and full range of emoluments and allowances, may be obtained from the Principal's Secretary, Jesus College, Oxford OX1 3DW (telephone: Oxford (2)79718, e-mail: gpeissel@jesus.ox.ac.uk), or they may be viewed on the college's Web page, http://www.jesus.ox. ac.uk. Applications, with a curriculum vitae and the names of three referees, should reach the Principal, Jesus College, Oxford OX1 3DW, not later than Monday, 29 January. Referees should be asked to write directly to the Principal by the same date.

Domus Research Studentships

Linacre College proposes to elect to not more than four Domus Studentships, tenable in the first instance for two years from 1 October 2001, with the possibility of election for a third year subject to satisfactory work and progress. The value of these studentships will be £250 per year. They will not normally be tenable after the students' liability for university and college fees has ended.

Holders of Domus Studentships will be given priority in the allocation of college accommodation. Candidates for these studentships will be either students who intend to begin reading for a higher degree or diploma at the University in October 2001, or current students of Linacre College in their first or second years. There is no restriction of subject. Candidates for these awards should submit an account of their previous academic work and a brief description of their proposed topic of research to the Senior Tutor, Linacre College, Oxford OX1 3JA, before 31 January, and should ask two academic referees to write directly to the Senior Tutor about them by that date.

ST JOHN'S COLLEGE

North Senior Scholarships 2001 and Beeston Scholarship 2001

St John's College proposes to elect from October 2001 one Beeston Scholar and two North Senior Scholars, each of whom will be required to work for a higher degree of Oxford University under a supervisor appointed by a faculty board. Candidates will normally have completed a first degree, be aged twenty-five or under at the starting date, and be in receipt of a United Kingdom graduate award, or its equivalent, covering the academic year 2001–2. Both scholarships are open to candidates in all subjects, but special encouragement is given, in the case of the Beeston Scholarship, to applications in the field of Middle Eastern Studies.

The value of the scholarships will be equal to the rate for awards from Government agencies, plus academic fees, less the value of any award held (that is, the scholarship does not duplicate fees and maintenance already paid by grant-awarding bodies). The scholars may, with permission, undertake a limited amount of teaching. Unmarried scholars will be offered accommodation, supplied by the college free of charge. A housing allowance is available for married scholars. Scholars have the right to dine at high table once a week in full term. The scholarships are normally tenable for two years. Application forms, available from the Secretary to the Tutor for Graduates, Mrs Pat Wilkinson, St John's College, Oxford OX1 3JP (telephone: Oxford (2)77428, fax: (2)77640), should be returned as soon as possible, and not later than 19 January.
