The University is seeking to elect two representatives (Chemistry and Mathematics) to MPLS Divisional Board, to start in Michaelmas Term 2023.

MPLS Divisional Board meets twice a term, on Fridays of Weeks 2 and 7, with meetings lasting for up to 2 hours. The MPLS Board is the primary legislative body for the division, but also acts as a forum for strategic discussion and a conduit for leading and facilitating change. Recent meetings have included sessions on inclusive chairing of meetings, neurodiversity, and the MPLS financial position and Five-Year Plan. Each meeting starts with a short ‘science highlight’ from a department which showcases the excellent research found across the division and reminds the board why we are all here. MPLS welcomes nominations from staff who would bring a diversity of points of view to discussion. That might include, but is not limited to, working in an interdisciplinary research area, perspectives gained from working outside Oxford, or staff at earlier career stages or from under-represented groups.

For further information, please contact the Divisional Registrar (
