St Catherine's College

Appointment of Academic Administrator

The post of Academic Administrator exists both to execute and to co-ordinate academic support arrangements in the college. The responsibilities of the Administrator will include a wide range of academic administration related to senior and junior members, the supervision of staff, and a major role in the undergraduate and graduate admissions procedures and the induction of new students. The Academic Administrator will be directly responsible to the Senior Tutor (a fellow of the college who has responsibility for academic affairs and who reports on such matters to the college's governing body) and will also act as secretary to academic committees.

There are at present two other experienced staff working in the office: the Admissions and Degree Secretary, who deals with liaison with schools, supports the undergraduate admissions process, and co-ordinates arrangements for degee ceremonies; and the Tutorial Secretary, who is responsible for all tuition support facilities. The staff assist each other during busy periods. A separate bursarial staff in the same part of the college deals with financial, estates, and domestic matters.

Applicants should have proven experience and qualifications in high-level administrative and secretarial areas, together with office management, organisational, and social skills. Applicants should be able to use computers for databases, spreadsheets, word-processing, and electronic mail. The office is extremely busy and the successful applicant must be able to work confidently under pressure. A high degree of personal initiative and integrity are essential as the Administrator will need to deal from time to time with confidential and personal matters for both senior and junior members of the college. The successful applicant will share the college's primary commitment to the pursuit of academic and intellectual achievement.

Salary will be on the academic-related scale 2 (B51), £17,606–£22,785, with eligibility to join USS. Annual holiday entitlement is twenty-five days, plus non term-time bank holidays. Applications, including a full curriculum vitae and the names of three referees, should be sent to the Senior Tutor, St Catherine's College, Oxford OX1 3UJ, by the closing date, 14 July. Interviews are planned for the week beginning 28 July. The college wishes the successful person to be in post by 29 September at the latest.

Further particulars are available (telephone: Oxford (2)71701). St Catherine's College exists to promote excellence in education and research, and is an equal opportunities employer.

St Hilda's College

Appointment of Junior Dean

St Hilda's College proposes to appoint a Junior Dean for a period of one year from 1 October 1997. The Junior Dean will be required to reside in college, free of charge, and will also receive free meals at high table and an honorarium of £1,000 per annum. Applicants must be graduates, and it is expected that they will be pursuing advanced study or research.

Since St Hilda's has many students from overseas, applicants who are sympathetic to the needs of these students will be particularly welcome.

Further particulars may be obtained from the College Officers' secretary, St Hilda's College, Oxford OX4 1DY (telephone: Oxford (2)76815), to whom four copies of applications, including a full curriculum vitae, should be sent by 11 July. Two referees should be asked to write direct by the same date. If the applicant is a registered graduate student, one of the referees must be the applicant's university supervisor. Interviews will be held during the week beginning 14 July.
