The successful candidate will bring research expertise in Latin American Studies or Spanish, broadly understood, to complement and contribute to the depth and breadth of the existing interdisciplinary team.

They will be able to offer research-led teaching in their area of Latin American Studies or Spanish and to contribute to teaching and administration within the Department of Hispanic, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, and the School of Modern Languages. They will possess a PhD in Latin American Studies or Spanish or a cognate field by the time of the appointment. The candidate will be fluent in the Spanish language.
