The School of Modern Languages and Cultures seeks to appoint an outstanding candidate to a non-fixed-term full-time Lectureship in Arabic. The successful candidate will be expected to undertake internationally-excellent research, provide high quality teaching and carry out service to the School. The appointment is tenable from 1 September 2017. We welcome applications from exceptional scholars with a research specialism in Arabic studies that fits with the research priorities of the School of Modern Languages and Cultures. We would especially invite applications from candidates in literary or visual studies. The post is also open to candidates who specialise in comparative literary, cultural and/or visual studies.

For this lectureship we are keen to invite applications from individuals at any stage of their academic career. Candidates in the early stages of their career should have a completed doctorate (or have a doctorate under examination) and be able to demonstrate the capacity for international-level research achievement. More experienced candidates will be expected to have a more significant publication record. An appointment at either grade may also have a record of public engagement and generation of impact beyond the academic community.

The successful candidate will be given a reduced teaching and administrative load during the three-year probationary period and will be supported to build their research portfolio.
