The Mathematical Institute has for many years made almost all of the course materials published on its website accessible for others to read. At the beginning of the academic year 2008/9 the department started making some material more widely available under the principles of the Open CourseWare Consortium. Lecturers are generally encouraged to make their material available under these terms.
The department became a formal member of the Open CourseWare Consortium at the beginning of March 2009.
For further information see the current list of Open CourseWare course materials available and the departmental notice on the Open CourseWare Consortium.

The College proposes to elect a Research Fellow and Tutor in Logic for a period of four years (fixed-term, non-renewable) from 1 October 2009. Scholars in receipt of another source of income, who would like a college association, are welcome to apply. The research interests of the person elected should include Logic or neighbouring areas of philosophy or mathematics, and there will be a requirement to teach Logic at undergraduate level. The teaching may be carried out in the joint school of Mathematics and Philosophy, and/or in any one of the other schools whose syllabus has a formal logic component. In addition the post holder may be involved in departmental class teaching. The teaching stint will be four hours per week averaged over the academic year. The Fellow may be asked to help in a limited way with the academic and pastoral organisation of the Philosophy side of the Mathematics and Philosophy joint school. Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Edward Harcourt at email@example.com.
The Fellow will not be a member of the College Governing Body, but will be a full member of the Senior Common Room and be entitled to lunch and dinner at the Common Table as well as to an academic allowance of £464 p.a. and a student allowance of £217 p.a. (both current rates, reviewed annually). A shared teaching room will be available. The stipend for up to 4 hours of teaching per week averaged over the year will be £4,256 p.a. (current rate). In addition, a Fellow not in receipt of other significant financial support will receive a housing allowance of £4,018 p.a. (current rate). The Fellow will be eligible to join USS. Selection will be made on the basis of research potential and teaching ability.
The closing date for applications is 20 March 2009. Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae (including the names, addresses and telephone numbers of two referees) and a statement of their research activity and teaching experience to Mrs Trish Long, Warden's PA, Keble College, Oxford OX1 3PG (e-mail: .), and should ask their referees to write directly to the Warden's PA by the same date.
Keble College is an Equal Opportunities employer committed to excellence in research and teaching.

Please see the announcement below from OUCS about changes to the matlab license server.
|Wednesday, 4 February 2009||
A new Windows Terminal Server will be in place between the Wednesday and Thursday. An exact time of the update is not available as it depends on the internet provider of the end-user. The new Terminal Server will offer several innovations including:
You will automatically be redirected to the new terminal server if you connect to
The old Windows Terminal Server (pandora) will still be available as a backup for a short period of time on
Please note, that due to a limitation in the current version of the Linux Terminal Server Client (rdesktop) you need to select a normal RDP (as opposed to RDPv5) session when connecting to the new Terminal Server. We hope to resolve this issue in the near future.
Please send any feedback and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org

In order to get the printing back into a transparent structure, the printserver print0 has been reinstalled today. In the first instance this should not affect anyone, but if it does, it will only affect people who have been using print0 in the past.
The idea is that print0 will become the main printserver for Linux and Windows users. Currently print0 is tested by several people across the department and is the recommended printserver for Laptops. If the test is successful, then we will be transferring everyone onto this printserver.
If you have any questions concerning this or are experiencing printing problems, please email email@example.com .
