The Faculty secretary has asked us to indicate exactly which days in July-September ("research period", not vacations) we are available to be contacted at home and which days we are definitely out of touch. I have long ago stopped being amazed at the local customs, so I ticked the appropriate boxes and sent in the form thinking this was for statistical or whatever other purposes. Not so. I am a member of the Senior Management Team. I have been allocated a week to be second in turn to lead the Faculty in case of emergency.
