Fixed-Term Student (Career Development Fellow) In English

University of Oxford - Christ Church

Christ Church hopes to appoint a Fixed-Term Student (Career Development Fellow) in English, for five years from 1st October 2018.

The appointee will be required to give up to six hours’ tutorial teaching each week for Final Honour School papers on literature in English 1550-1830 (i.e. Paper 1: Shakespeare portfolio; Paper 3: Literature in English 1550-1660; Paper 4: Literature in English 1660-1760 and Paper 5: Literature in English 1760-1830), including, as necessary, supervision of dissertation work in this period at undergraduate level. Demonstrable ability to teach widely across this period of literary history may be an advantage.

The Student will also be expected to undertake advanced study or research and (by arrangement with the Faculty of English) to offer one course of lectures, or the equivalent in other forms of teaching such as classes, each year in the University. Applicants should have a good first degree in English and a higher degree (doctorate or equivalent) in English literature within the period specified above, higher education teaching experience in tutorial and small group settings, and a research record commensurate with the stage of their career.

The salary is on a scale currently starting at £26,495 a year.

The Student will be entitled to free single accommodation in college if available or to a housing allowance of currently £10,000 per annum.

Further details can be downloaded from the college website:

Enquiries may be directed to the Academic Registrar.

The closing date for receipt of applications is Wednesday, 2nd May 2018.
