The Royal College of Physicians has agreed to assist in the award of the above Prize which has been established by the late Tom Scotson Lucking in memory of his wife with the object of assisting students in medicine.

The Prize is of the value of not less than £500. It is to be awarded for a significant contribution or research normally completed within seven years of taking the final M.B. degree in the field of (a) leukaemia research, (b) nephrology, or (c) dermatology. It is open to UK residents under the age of forty years.

The Prize shall be awarded by the Master of Fitzwilliam College, the Director of Studies in Medicine of the College, and the College Bursar, in consultation with the Regius Professor of Physics and the Royal College of Physicians.

Applicants are required to submit six copies of their curriculum vitae, and up to five publications of original research in the field. Applicants are also asked to submit letters of application through proposers prepared to cite them for the award.

Applications should be sent to The Master, Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, CB3 0DG, by 31 March 2002.


The Governing Body of Fitzwilliam College invites applications from men and women for two stipendiary and one non-stipendiary Research Fellowship tenable for three years from 1 October 2002.

The Fellowships are open to candidates who are at present carrying out research at whatever stage for the Ph.D. Degree of Cambridge, or any other British or Irish university, or who have recently completed their course of study for this degree. It is also open to candidates for the Ph.D. at other universities who are graduates of a British or Irish university.

No candidate should have completed four years of full-time research by 1 April 2002.

Subjects are restricted to: Biological Sciences, Linguistics and Phonetics, Modern and Medieval Languages, Oriental Studies, Philosophy, and Theology. Research students of Fitzwilliam College may apply without restriction of subject. Candidates for the Sciences need to certify that the University or a related institution in Cambridge will provide space and resources for their research.

Where a stipend is paid, a Fellowship can be pensionable under the USS. A stipendiary Fellow already holding an award from another organization, such as a Research Council or similar body, will be paid a stipend from the date such an award expires. Stipends are reviewed at the same time as University stipends. The current rate is £12,051 to £13,912 for a pre-Ph.D. Fellow. A post-Ph.D. Fellow's rate is £12,982 to £14,851, with an additional allowance, which is currently £2,200, for any Research Fellow not resident in College. A non-stipendiary Fellow will be entitled to the living out allowance and to the full privileges of a Research Fellow at the College, as set out in the Further Particulars.

The Fitzwilliam Trust has established a fund from which grants may be made to assist with certain approved research expenses, and an allowance for books is provided at the commencement of a Fellowship. In addition an annual allowance of £500 is provided for each Fellow to be used for academic purposes.

Before applying, please obtain further particulars, including details of privileges and responsibilities applicable to all Research Fellowships, and an application form, by sending an A4 self-addressed envelope to the Master's Secretary, Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, CB3 0DG. Applications should be sent to the Master no later than Thursday, 17 January 2002.

Selected candidates will be invited in mid-February to submit two copies of a dissertation or other written work by Monday, 25 February. Shortlisted candidates will be called for interview in mid-April when it is expected that an offer will be made.
