This is a new role to develop thinking on and delivery of a large investment by the University in augmenting the teaching of new courses by web-based learning. The innovative project will draw on the latest learning technologies to re-imagine university teaching for the mid-21st century. 

Key areas of expertise for this position, for example, will be within the very broad area of applied linguistics, discourse analysis, literary linguistics, world literatures in English, global Englishes as articulations of experience and culture, comparative literatures in English across the world and/or across time.  You might take a genre-focused approach to different literatures, or a rhetorical approach, or a postcolonial perspective on any combinations of poetry, prose, drama and creative production and performance across the world. The project setup phase is intended to cover the first 5 years, during which time the person appointed will be expected to work primarily on the programme, with a small amount of conventional teaching.

Candidates should have a PhD (or equivalent) in any interdisciplinary or broad aspect of English studies. Evidence of the ability to teach at undergraduate and postgraduate levels on both present and virtual programmes is essential. A role holder appointed at level 6 would be expected to make a significant leadership impact both at the University and in their own teaching area in the scholarly community.  A role holder appointed at level 5 will not be expected to fulfil a leadership function, but will be expected to contribute innovative thinking around course design. Applicants are asked to confirm whether they wish to be considered for either the Assistant Professor (level 5) or Associate Professor (level 6) post (or both) in their application.     

This is a full-time, permanent post available from 1 March 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter based in the School of English, Trent Building, University Park, Nottingham.
