The Department of English Studies at Durham University seeks to appoint an Associate Professor in Poetry and Poetics (Grade 9).

The successful candidate will have research and teaching interests in any area of poetry and poetics across the full range of period specialisation.

Specialists in any other aspect of the literature of the period are also encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will be joining a department with notable strengths in the field, including in the history of poetry and poetic forms, the editing of poetry, poetry and religion, Romantic and post-Romantic poetics, modernism and postmodernism, and literary theory, and with growing expertise in the broad area of world literatures in English.

The successful candidate will be able to provide evidence of outstanding research potential and/or achievement in any area of the literature of the period and will be expected to develop undergraduate and postgraduate modules reflecting their research specialism, as well as to teach broadly on the Department’s curriculum as appropriate. They will also be expected to attract and supervise postgraduate research students at PhD level and will contribute to strengthening and enhancing the University’s international profile through teaching and research of global reach and significance.
