Wadham College proposes to appoint a Fellow by Special Election in French Literature in the period 1530-1800. This is a fixed-term, non-renewable, four-year appointment from September/October 2019. The post is funded by Wadham College and is designed to support the teaching and research development of an early career scholar. The Fellowship will provide an excellent opportunity for an academic at an early stage of their career to develop their teaching and research portfolio.
Applications are welcome from candidates with a doctorate in the field of Early Modern French Literature (candidates should already have been awardee their doctoral degree or have submitted their thesis and be awaiting their viva by the time of interview). They must have teaching expertise in the field of Early Modern French literature 1530-18:00 and French language classes at undergraduate level.
The successful candidate will share responsibility for the teaching of French within Wadham College. In particular, the Fellow will be responsible for providing six hours a week of undergraduate tuition in Early Modern French Literature and in French Language at Wadham, averaged over three eight-week terms (the College allows tutors to ‘weight’ their hours, so the actual contact time will be less – down to 4hrs per week). The successful candidate will be expected to teach topics in Paper III (Short Texts) and Paper IV (French Narrative Fiction) to first-year students; topics in FHS Paper VII (Early Modern Literature 1530-1800) and Paper X (Early Modern Prescribed Authors 1530-1800) to second- and final-year students; and translation to various year groups.
