CAMBRIDGE.—The General Board of Studies propose to appoint, early in Easter Term, a number of Readers and University Lecturers, including the following: a Reader in Comparative Philology, stipend 300l. per annum; a Reader in Botany, stipend 100l.; University Lecturers in Sanskrit, in Comparative Philology, in Mathematics (one in each group of the Tripos, Part 3), in Applied Mechanics, in Botany, in Animal Morphology, in Advanced Physiology (three), in Geology, in History (five), and in Moral Science; all at 50l., except in Animal Morphology and in Geology, to which 100l. is assigned. The University Lecturers will for the most part be chosen from such College Lecturers as open their lectures to the University generally; but the Board is not necessarily restricted to such; nor to persons who may apply. Candidates are to send in their names and testimonials (if any) to the Vice-Chancellor not later than April 25. It is understood that two lectures a week during term time shall be the minimum during two terms for each lecturer receiving 50l. per annum. As far as possible the University Lecturers are to give special personal attention to their pupils, so as to obviate as much as possible the necessity of private tuition in the subject of the lectures; and the students' fees are to be understood as payment for this personal supervision.
