The University is looking for an academic with international research standing and considerable leadership skills, including the ability to stimulate debate on the public policy aspects of the Internet. The appointment offers a unique opportunity to shape a new interdisciplinary venture, examining the impact of the Internet on society. A Fellowship at Balliol College, where the Institute is located, is attached to the Professorship.

Applications (eleven copies, but only one from overseas candidates) naming three persons who have agreed to act as referees on this occasion should be sent to the address below, not later than 16 July 2001.

Preference will be given to a political scientist who combines expertise in one or more of the major branches or institutions of American Government with a broad knowledge of the American political system and its environment. A Fellowship at Nuffield College is attached to the Professorship.
