The Residential Life Programs office has begun the process of recruiting and selecting Graduate Resident Tutors for MIT’s undergraduate residential communities for the 2012-2013 academic year. GRTs play an integral role in the lives of our students and have the opportunity to make a positive impact on our community as a whole.

The deadline for applications is February 10, 2012. The final information session will be held on January 30, 6-7pm at the Warehouse .
Applicants must be MIT graduate students who have been at MIT for at least one year, or MIT seniors who are continuing as grad students next year. International students are encouraged to apply if the role (which is considered employment of 10 hours per week) is compatible with their legal work eligibility in the US. Preference will be given to candidates who are likely to remain in the role for two or more years. GRTs receive free housing for 12 months, a stipend of $1,460 per academic year, and opportunities to work closely with MIT faculty and undergrads. Candidates may be called for interviews with House teams in February or March, and offers will be made in early April. The GRT appointment lasts from mid-August 2012 until early June 2013.
