St Catherine's College, Oxford


St Catherine's College proposes, if there is a candidate of sufficient merit, to elect a Leathersellers' Scholar with effect from 1 October 1998. The Scholarship will be to the value of £2,000 a year and will be tenable for up to three years. It may be held in conjunction with another award and is open to graduates of any British university who wish to undertake research in the Biological, Mathematical, Physical, or Physiological Sciences.

St Catherine's has a large and thriving Graduate Common Room, and accommodation is available in College for single Scholars in their first two years (at the current room charge rate). Limited Senior Common Room dining rights are also granted to Scholars. There are fifteen flats for married graduates nearby. Applicants must complete an Oxford application form if they have not already done so, and they should place St Catherine's as their College of first choice. The form should be sent as soon as possible to the Graduate Admissions Office as directed. When the dossier is complete, it will be sent to the relevant Department for consideration. If accepted, it will then be passed on to the College.

Those who wish to be considered for this Scholarship should write to the Academic Administrator, St Catherine's College, Oxford, OX1 3UJ, giving a brief curriculum vitae and proposed area of research at Oxford (there is no application form). Other means of financial support should be stated. In addition, candidates should arrange for two people acquainted with their recent academic work to send a confidential report direct to the Academic Administrator before the closing date for application, Thursday, 7 May 1998. The College plans to interview short-listed candidates towards the end of May. Nominations will be submitted to the Leathersellers' Company in June 1998.
