My husband is seriously considering a job at MAJMAAH University. i googled the univ and the city and understand that AL-Majmaah is a city and a governorate in Ar Riyad Province. apart apart from that , there is not much info online about AL-Majmaah - the place, the cultre, people, cost of living, info for expats etc.
Can i safely assume that the info for Riyad can be used for AL-Majmaah city as well?
Is anyone in this community living/ has info abt AL-Majmaah - any info you can share would be helpful?
The agent has given my husband the following info abt the salary he can possibly be offered -

ïƒ˜ Associate Professor: SR 7037 (Basic)+SR 450 (Per year Experience up to 5 years) per month+ HRA SR 25000 yearly +Furniture Allowance SR 12500 yearly +Transportation SR 600 per month+ Special Allowance 30-80%

My questions are -
1. Is this the normal salary range for acedemics in Saudi or will the salary change on the baisis of the ranking of the university?
2. Do we ask the employer for health insurance or anything else? is there room for negotiation with the Delegation from the Ministry of Higher Education?
3. Assuming we get a monthly salary of SR15000+Furniture Allowance SR 12500 yearly, is that sufficient for a couple?
4. Is it possible for me (wife of the work permit holder) to get employment in saudi? i am a graduate and have approx 15 years of admn exp in india. Or do only spouses in certain occupation(doctors nurses, teachers) get employment in saudi.
i will be grateful for info you can share with me.
