For those of you looking to help fund/offset costs of studying at Durham, there is an opportunity for single (maybe married?) students to get housing and meals covered by being a Resident Tutor (kind of like a mix between being an RA and dorm parent mixed together in US terms). Each college has these, so if you are not with St John’s then check with your own college for similar opportunities.
St. John’s College, University of Durham seeks to appoint Two Resident Tutors beginning September/October 2010
We are looking for applicants who:
- are academics, or graduates, in any discipline
- will be pastorally responsible for a group of 25 undergraduates, and involved, in a wider sense, in the well being of all living in College.
- will help to foster the College’s lively inter-disciplinary intellectual life
- will share in the life and worship of this vibrant Christian community
Resident Tutors live and eat in College, and are provided with an allowance per student and a stipend.
Application form and further particulars are available from the Senior Tutor’s Secretary, St John’s College, 3 South Bailey, Durham, DH1 3RJ (Tel: 0191 334 3881). Email: Johns.firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications should be received by 5.00pm on Wednesday 5th May. Interviews are planned to take place on the 6th and 7th May 2010.
