The electors intend to proceed to an election to the fixed-term Uehiro Professorship of Applied Ethics with effect from 1 October 2001, or such later date as may be arranged, for a period of five years. A non-stipendiary Fellowship at St Cross College is attached to the Professorship.

The Professor will develop and enhance research and teaching in Moral Philosophy/Applied Ethics throughout the University. At present Moral Philosophy/Applied Ethics is taught in the Faculty of Theology, the Sub-faculty of Philosophy, and the Medical School. The Professor will be expected to contribute to the teaching in these areas and to take an active part in the promotion of the subject within the University; and also to work closely with the research carried out by the Oxford Centre for Ethics and Communication in Health Care Practice (Ethox).

Applications (eleven copies, or one only from overseas candidates), naming three persons who have agreed to act as referees on this occasion, should be received not later than 17 April 2001 by the Registrar, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford, OX1 2JD, from whom further particulars may be obtained. Further particulars may also be accessed on the Web (URL: www.admin.ox.ac.uk/fp/).
