The electors intend to proceed to an election to the newly established Professorship of Indian History and Culture, with effect from 1 October 2001 or such later date as may be arranged. This Chair has been created by means of a munificent benefaction from the Government of India.

The University interprets History and Culture widely, to include any historical period, ancient, medieval, or modern, and any cultural field. Applications are now invited from scholars in Indian historical and cultural studies regardless of chronological period or disciplinary specialization. Applicants are expected to be fully expert in one or more of the Indian languages (as well as other languages) required for the study of Indian history, and to be able to use the primary sources that are central to Indian historical studies. A non-stipendiary Fellowship at St Cross College is attached to the Professorship.

Applications (ten copies, or one only from candidates who are based overseas), naming three persons (with postal and e-mail addresses and telephone/fax numbers) who have agreed to act as referees on this occasion, should be received not later than 14 May 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/).
