ANDREW W. MELLON PROFESSORSHIP OF AMERICAN GOVERNMENT

The electors intend to proceed to an election to the Andrew W. Mellon Professorship of American Government. It is anticipated that an appointment will be made with effect from 1 October 2002. The vacancy arises upon the resignation of Professor Bryon Shafer (the first holder), who is to take up a chair at the University of Wisconsin.

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.

Applications (ten copies, or one only from overseas candidates), 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 sent to the address below, not later than 15 October 2001 (revised date).

ROBERT TURNER PROFESSORSHIP OF DIABETIC MEDICINE

The electors intend to proceed to an election to the newly established Robert Turner Professorship of Diabetic Medicine with effect from 1 January 2002, or such later date as may be arranged. This is a new post endowed with funds provided for this purpose by Les Laboratoires Servier. Expressions of interest are also invited for a university-funded Professorship of Diabetic Medicine, formal applications for which will be sought later this year.

Applicants will be expected to have an impressive publication record and a research interest predominantly in Type 2 Diabetes and/or metabolism. A non-stipendiary Fellowship at Green College is attached to the Professorship. The Professor may be medically qualified; scientists who are not medically qualified but who have a strong record of research in the specified field are also encouraged to apply for this post.

Applications (thirteen copies, or one only 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 3 September 2001.

PROFESSORSHIP OF MUSCULO-SKELETAL PATHOLOGY

The electors intend to proceed to an election to the Professorship of Musculo-skeletal Pathology with effect from as early a date as may be arranged.

This is a new post within the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and is funded by the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre NHS Trust. The post-holder will be expected to develop a strong research programme in the cellular and molecular pathology of diseases of bone joint and soft tissue. Although no specific interest is sought, it is expected that the Professor will strengthen research interests which are already in or affiliated to the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. The post-holder will also be expected to provide an on-site diagnostic role and contribute to the multi-disciplinary management of patients with orthopaedic/rheumatological conditions. A non-stipendiary Fellowship at Wadham College is attached to the Professorship. The Professor must be medically qualified.

Applications (eleven copies, or one only 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 3 September 2001.

In each case, applications should be sent to 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: http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/fp/).
