The University Library is seeking suitably qualified candidates for two posts in the Betty and Gordon Moore Library, a dependent library of the University Library, which will open in the summer of 2001. Applicants should have a good honours degree and a postgraduate qualification in library and information studies, together with experience in an academic library.

The appointments will be for five years in the first instance, with the possibility of reappointment for periods not exceeding five years at a time. The pensionable scale of stipends for an Assistant Library Officer is £16,775 a year, rising by four annual increments to £20,465 (under review).

Fixed-term Lecturer in the School of Education

Lecturer in Mathematics Enrichment and Communications Technology in the School of Education. A distinctive element of this post will be to act as Director of the highly successful NRICH Online Mathematics Project, initiated and established by Mrs Toni Beardon, who is due to retire. The Director will lead a large project team, managing the activities of the project and pursuing teaching and research initiatives in support of its aims. NRICH publishes a monthly on-line magazine for schools and provides free services to its worldwide and fast-growing membership.

The successful candidate will demonstrate relevant experience of mathematics education, of team leadership and management, and of educational research. He or she will have a keen interest in mathematics enrichment and the educational potential of ICT, and a commitment to develop and research new ideas and effective practice in the field.

There will be opportunities for productive collaboration with staff in the School of Education and a close working partnership with members of the Millennium Mathematics Project (MMP), based in the Centre for Mathematical Sciences, will also be expected.

The appointment is available for a fixed period of five years from 1 October 2001, or as soon as possible thereafter, and the salary will be on a level equivalent to that of a University Lecturer (£21,435 to £33,058 a year, under review). The closing date for applications is 8 June 2001.

Informal enquiries can be addressed to Mrs Toni Beardon (e-mail lab11@cam.ac.uk), or to Dr Kenneth Ruthven, Deputy Head of School (e-mail kr18@cam.ac.uk), and further information about both projects and the School of Education can be found on http://nrich.maths.org, http://mmp.maths.org and http://www.educ.cam.ac.uk.

Teaching Fellowships in the Faculty of Economics and Politics

Applications are invited for five Teaching Fellowships in the Faculty of Economics and Politics for one year beginning in October 2001. Graduate Students of the University are eligible to apply for such Fellowships. Applicants should be able to provide supervisions for the following papers in the Economics Tripos: Part I, Paper 5, British Economic History; Part II, Paper 7, Banking, Money, and Finance; Part II, Paper 8, Public Economics; Part II, Paper 9, The Economics of Underdeveloped Countries; Part II, Paper 10, Industry.

Candidates appointed to Teaching Fellowships will be expected to supervise 80-100 hours for one of the above Tripos papers. The Faculty will make a payment for this supervision, in addition to the usual supervision rate, which will be paid by the Colleges. The Faculty will also make a one-off grant towards teaching expenses. The primary responsibility of Teaching Fellows will be to provide supervisions for specific papers, but if there is insufficient demand for supervision in that area to warrant the input of a Teaching Fellow then he or she will be expected to teach for a core paper for Part I of the Economics Tripos and/or a core paper for the Preliminary Examination to Part II of the Economics Tripos.

For further information, please contact the Faculty Secretary and consult the Faculty's website (http://www.econ.cam.ac.uk/).

Applications, including a curriculum vitae giving relevant experience, should be submitted to the Faculty Secretary, Faculty of Economics and Politics, Austin Robinson Building, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge, CB3 9DD, by Friday, 1 June 2001. Applications should state clearly for which of the five papers set out above, and for which core papers in Part I and/or Prelims, the applicant is willing to supervise.
