I wonder whether I could ask you to circulate details of this post to
colleagues in Sweden who may be interested - is there a mailing list that
you could use? (Perhaps you could copy the message to me).
This is regarded as a key appointment by the University, and applications
will be welcomed from staff who are based outside of the UK. Details are on
the Web address given below - note the closing date of 17 June 2003.
