Are you interested in working for a world top 100 University?

We have an exciting opportunity in the School of English for someone with a passion for teaching looking to use their expertise in Contemporary Literature to make an impact on core modules.

With over 50 members of academic staff, the School of English is able to offer outstanding teaching across a wide range of subject areas (English Literature, Film, Theatre and Performance, Creative Writing, Theoretical and Applied Linguistics, Historical Linguistics, Literary Linguistics, and English Language).

In this varied and dynamic role, you will be responsible for delivering both undergraduate and postgraduate modules.  Working alongside English Literature colleagues, the role will offer you an opportunity to deliver seminars, lectures and supervise undergraduate dissertations.  You will also be expected to assist as required with the administration of the School.

We are seeking candidates with a PhD (or be close to completing) in a relevant subject area, as well as proven teaching ability, ideally with a teaching qualification.  As this role involves dealing with both undergraduate and postgraduate students, you will also need to demonstrate a strong commitment to student support and the ability to communicate complex theories and problems effectively.

This post is a fixed term position.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience. We particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic (BME) candidates who are currently under-represented at this level of post. All appointments will be based on merit.
