OXFORD Notices

St Catherine's College


The College proposes to appoint a four-hour stipendiary Lecturer in Medicine from October 2001, for one year. The Lecturer will be required to teach Biochemistry to pre-clinical students. The Lecturer will teach (in tutorials and classes) four hours a week on average in the eight weeks of each full term. In addition, he or she will be expected to play a full role in the running of the Honour School of Physiological Sciences (Medicine), including participation in the admissions process, the setting and marking of College examinations, and the pastoral care of undergraduates. The Lecturer will be expected to teach across a range of topics in Biochemistry for the First BM, parts I and II, and the Final Honours School of Physiological Sciences (Medicine). He or she will also be expected to run revision classes in the core subjects, and to do such special paper teaching as falls within his or her research areas.

A teaching room is usually available. The Lecturer will be a member of the Senior Common Room and will receive five meals a week during term time. The stipend for 2000-01 is £5,600 and will be pensionable.

Applications should be addressed to the Academic Administrator, St Catherine's College, Oxford, OX1 3UJ (e-mail academic.administrator@stcatz.ox.ac.uk), and should include a curriculum vitae, an indication of areas of teaching expertise, and the names of two referees. Applicants should ask their referees to write directly to the Academic Administrator. Applications and references must arrive by 5 p.m. on Thursday, 15 March 2001 and short-listed candidates are likely to be interviewed during the week commencing 19 March 2001.


St Catherine's College proposes, if there is a candidate of sufficient merit, to elect a Leathersellers' Scholar with effect from 1 October 2001. 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 physical or biological sciences, mathematics, or engineering.

St Catherine's has a large and thriving Graduate Common Room, and accommodation is available in College for single Scholars for the duration of the Scholarship (at the current room charge rate). Limited Senior Common Room dining rights are also granted to Scholars. There are fifteen College-owned flats nearby suitable for couples, some of which can also accommodate children.

Applicants must complete an Oxford application form if they have not already done so, and they may wish to 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 Faculty or Department for consideration. If accepted, it will then be passed on to the College of first choice. Candidates who have already completed an Oxford application form do not need to amend their choice of Colleges in order to be eligible to apply.

There is no application form for this Scholarship. To apply, please write to the Tutor for Graduates, St Catherine's College, Oxford, OX1 3UJ (e-mail admissions@stcatz.ox.ac.uk), giving a curriculum vitae and the proposed area of research at Oxford. Candidates' 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 Tutor for Graduates before the closing date. The closing date for application is Thursday, 26 April 2001 and the College plans to interview short-listed candidates as soon as possible thereafter. Nominations will be submitted to the Leathersellers' Company in May 2001.

The College is an equal opportunities employer.
