Lancaster University - English & Creative Writing

Location: Lancaster
Salary: £36,382 to £40,927
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 11th May 2022
Closes: 8th June 2022
Job Ref: A3746

The Department of English Literature and Creative Writing at Lancaster University is seeking to appoint two Lecturers in Creative Writing.  This is an indefinite appointment, to start 1 September 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter. The Department is in the top ten in the UK for Creative Writing (Complete University Guide 2022) and we wish to add to our profile by attracting writers with expertise in prose writing and/or new media. 

We are particularly interested in applicants who specialise in the novel and/or creative non-fiction but would also value applications that offer one or more of the following: scriptwriting (screen or stage); the graphic novel; short fiction; life writing; flash fiction; creative-critical; digital narratives, multi-media or interactive texts; text and image. Candidates should have a strong profile in teaching and practice-based research as well as concrete plans for future projects and publications.  

The successful candidates will have experience of undergraduate teaching (preferably including the design and delivery of their own modules) and will be expected to be able to teach postgraduate modules and supervise doctoral students. They are likely to be expected to teach on undergraduate core Creative Writing workshops as well as on genre-specific modules at undergraduate and/or MA level, and to show the ability to take an effective leadership role in Creative Writing programmes.

The successful applicants will be expected to have completed their PhD or to have publications that could be submitted for a PhD by Published Work. They will also show evidence of a strong set of publication plans in preparation for the next REF, and of public engagement activities in support of their research. Our Department is actively working to diversify its staff body and decolonise its  curriculum, and we particularly encourage applications from Black, Asian and/or Minority Ethnic Creative Writers and others with protected characteristics that are currently underrepresented in our department, such as LGBTQ+ and disabled applicants. We intend to hold interviews in person. 

Informal enquiries are welcomed and should be made to Professor Sharon Ruston, Head of Department: s.ruston@lancaster.ac.uk
