The School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies (www.tcd.langs-lits-cultures/) is seeking to appoint an Assistant Professor in German for two years commencing the academic year 2019/20. Candidates will have a completed PhD or equivalent and, depending on their career stage, show clear potential to develop a strong research profile. Native or near-native language competence and ability to teach in German are required. The person appointed will be required to teach an average of 8 hours per week. The teaching, to be conducted in German and in English, will include lectures and tutorials/seminars for undergraduate students of the Department of Germanic Studies. Applications are invited from candidates with demonstrable expertise in and willingness to teach German literature and language modules, a track record in interdisciplinary teaching, as well as in teaching innovation and creativity. A commitment to curriculum development in the context of College restructuring of undergraduate degrees and reconceptualization of the undergraduate profile is highly desirable, as is a commitment to promotion of the discipline of Germanic Studies across the School, College and increasingly important outreach activities.
The person appointed will be expected to play a full role in the administration and management of the Department, to participate actively in the School academic community, and to continue to develop their research and be supported in doing so.
