UNIVERSITY LECTURERSHIP IN BIOCHEMISTRY

In association with St Peter's College

Applications are sought from scientists with a proven record of research achievement in the general area of Molecular or Cellular Biochemistry for a vacant Lecturership in a large multidisciplinary Department. The Department of Biochemistry would like to attract candidates with interests in Cell Biology and/or Metabolism, but the post is not restricted to those areas. Candidates will be expected both to develop a vigorous programme of research that will complement the interests of existing members of the Department and contribute to the Department's international research reputation; and to participate in the Department's undergraduate and postgraduate learning programme.

Further particulars (with details of University and College duties and emoluments) and information about the Department can be obtained from http://www.bioch.ox.ac.uk/, or from the Head of Department, Professor R. A. Dwek, FRS (tel. +44 (0)1865 275274, fax +44 (0)1865 275399, e-mail head@bioch.ox.ac.uk).

The Lecturership is available as soon as possible, or from 1 October 2001. It may be associated with a Tutorial Fellowship at St Peter's College.

Applications (eight copies, or one only from overseas applicants) should be sent to Professor R. A. Dwek, FRS, Department of Biochemistry, South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3QU. They should include a curriculum vitae, a summary of research, a list of principal publications, and the names and contact details of three referees. Candidates should ask their referees to write direct to Professor Dwek by the closing date for receipt of applications of 20 December 2000. It is hoped to interview during the first half of February; candidates will be notified if they are required for interview.

PIRIE-REID SCHOLARSHIPS

Applications are invited for up to two Scholarships, which will provide for fees and a maintenance grant, from graduates (including persons graduating in 2001) from any and all fields, who wish to commence studying at Oxford in October 2001 for a degree or diploma, but who would otherwise be prevented by a lack of funds. Preference will be given to candidates domiciled or educated in Scotland; candidates not fulfilling this criterion are unlikely to be successful.

Further particulars and application forms may be obtained from Mrs J. Brown, Life and Environmental Sciences Divisional Office, 2 South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3UB (e-mail judith.brown@admin.ox.ac.uk). The closing date for applications is 1 May 2001.

The University is an equal opportunities employer.
