    attributive clause

    Hi, I really need your help.Thanks!
    Teaching is a kind of job, where your patience is needed.
    In this sentence , can "where" be replaced by " in which" or"during which"?
    Thanks again.

    Yes to 'in which'. 'During which' is meaningless: a job is not a period of time!
