The School of English wishes to appoint an outstanding candidate to a full-time, permanent lectureship in Medical Humanities. As a lecturer, you will join the Medical Humanities team in the School of English and will consolidate and extend the team’s existing research and teaching strengths. You will have a PhD in any aspect of English Studies (including Literature, Language, Theatre Studies and Creative Writing) and experience of university teaching. You will be an active scholar developing your research profile in your area(s) of academic specialism related to the Medical Humanities, and you will have produced high quality research outputs/publications commensurate with your career stage. This post is funded initially via a Wellcome Trust Research Development Award, and through the activities of this research grant you will have opportunities to participate in collaborative and experimental research activities, cross-sector engagement and impact work, and to access career development opportunities in the Medical Humanities and English Studies more widely. 

You will be an active member of the School’s Medical Humanities Research Group, which brings together researchers who work on a broad range of topics across the interaction between literature/culture and medicine and health. Our focus is interdisciplinary, and we have strong connections with colleagues in medical engineering, history of science, immersive technologies and health sciences, as well as service users and other partners across the city. Our research approach is to utilise the critical thinking practices of the arts and humanities to ask questions rooted in experiences, practices, representations and histories of medicine, health, illness, disability and care. We use fictions, cultural theory and the creative arts to develop innovative approaches to exploring meanings of medicine and health. 

As a lecturer, you will contribute to delivering and developing our teaching in the Medical Humanities. You will design and deliver lectures and seminars on core modules; supervise undergraduate final year dissertations; and will have the opportunity to devise and teach option modules relating to Medical Humanities. You may also be asked to contribute to taught postgraduate modules. You will take an active role in the citizenship of the School and will be expected to engage with its culture of interdisciplinary research and research-led teaching.
