Wycliffe Hall’s partner, Scholarship & Christianity in Oxford (SCIO), seeks a Junior Dean.

SCIO invites applications for the position of Junior Dean for a small number (11–17) of Registered Visiting Students studying various subjects of the University of Oxford and housed in the north wing of Wycliffe Hall’s main building on Banbury Road. The Junior Dean has pastoral and disciplinary responsibilities, and will liaise with Wycliffe Hall’s maintenance team to resolve maintenance issues.  He or she must be in the Hall 4 evenings per week and spend c.10 hours a week with the students and on other SCIO related matters; be available to meet SCIO staff at regular times during term; encourage students to live according to published standards of conduct; and support senior staff in the implementation and enforcement of those standards. The primary period when work is needed will be during the two 14-week semesters encompassing Michaelmas and Hilary terms respectively.  Work hours decrease substantially from the beginning of Trinity Term.  The successful applicant may be required to be Junior Dean for a five-week summer programme in June/July for extra remuneration. 


The appointed person would normally be expected to be registered for an advanced degree at the University of Oxford and will have completed at least one year of graduate study.  He or she may have the opportunity to participate in the academic programme if appropriate opportunities arise.  Separate remuneration will be offered for such teaching.  The appointed person will have considerable experience of Oxford to enable the Visiting Students to participate fully in Oxford life.  He or she must be able fully to understand and operate within the aims and objectives of Wycliffe Hall and SCIO.  The position offers a room, remuneration of £1,500 per annum (plus superannuation, annual leave and sick leave), and will be for one year, starting on Monday 19 August 2019 with the possibility of renewal.
