Applications are invited for a one-year, fixed-term post to cover the maternity leave of the Senior Tutor with effect from Trinity Term 2009 (15 April 2009), or earlier by mutual agreement.

Merton College is a vibrant and diverse community which is committed to excellence in the education of undergraduates, support of graduates, and research.

Full details of the post, its conditions, and the application process, are set out in the further particulars which can be downloaded from the Merton College website (http://www.merton.ox.ac.uk/vacancies/index.shtml) or, in case of difficulty, may be obtained from the Sub-Warden's Secretary, Merton College, Oxford, OX1 4JD (email lesley.walsh@admin.merton.ox.ac.uk).
