St Cross College, Oxford
KNOOP JUNIOR RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP
The College proposes to make an election to this Junior Research Fellowship, tenable from 1 October 1998 (or from another date by agreement) for one year in the first instance. The Fellowship is to be held in conjunction with a position in the Department of Ophthalmology, involving research work in the general area of the biochemistry of the lens; it will be suitable for graduates in biochemistry, physiology, and allied subjects. Experience of the lens and/or glycation or molecular chaperone is desirable but not essential. The fellowship is open to men and women and carries a stipend of £15,159 a year, together with common table rights (five lunches a week). Applicants should have submitted their doctoral dissertations by the date of taking up the appointment or have obtained the D.Phil./Ph.D. or equivalent within the last five years, but the College will exercise flexibility in the case of applicants whose academic careers have been interrupted.
Applications (marked Knoop JRF) should include a full curriculum vitae and the names of two referees and should be addressed to the Master, St Cross College, Oxford, OX1 3LZ. The closing date for applications is 1 June 1998. Applicants should ask their referees to send references to the Master by that date. Further details about scientific aspects can be obtained from Professor John J. Harding, Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Walton Street, Oxford, OX2 6AW (tel. 01865 248996).
The College is an equal opportunities employer.
