Official (Tutorial) Fellowship in English at The Queen’s College and Associate Professorship or Professorship of Literature in English
The Queen’s College and the Faculty of English are seeking to recruit an Official (Tutorial) Fellow in English and Associate Professor or Professor of Literature in English to start on 1st September 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter. Applications are invited from candidates with research expertise in the field of literature in English in the period 1450-1550, including in areas such as medieval and early Tudor drama, early Scottish literature, women’s writing, or Henrician court literature. We also encourage applicants with comparative and global interests. The Faculty and College are strongly committed to encouraging diverse and inclusive approaches to literary study.
The Queen’s College will elect the successful candidate to an Official Fellowship in English, in association with the University Associate Professorship or Professorship in the Faculty of English. As a Tutorial Fellow of The Queen’s College, the postholder will have joint primary responsibility for the provision of English teaching to students at Queen’s and will share in the admission and pastoral care of students studying for degrees involving English. The postholder will provide tutorials for papers in the Final Honour and/or the Preliminary School in English Language and Literature. Within eight weighted contact hours, they will supervise undergraduate dissertations that fall in their area of expertise. As a member of the College’s Governing Body (a Charity Trustee), they will contribute to the governance of the College and play a part in its administration.
The successful candidate will have the potential to enhance the high reputation of the Faculty of English in research; will have a proven record of internationally recognised research appropriate to their career stage; and will provide a high standard of research-led teaching, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, including the supervision of research students. The postholder might be expected to convene the genre-based comparative literature paper for the medieval and language-focused stream of the undergraduate English degree, and to contribute to teaching on the MSt in English Literature (650-1550) and the MPhil in English Studies (Medieval Period). The postholder will give lectures or classes (usually the equivalent of one graduate or advanced undergraduate special option and one lecture series), supervise medieval MSt and DPhil dissertations and theses, participate in examining, and play a full and active role in Faculty administration.
The University of Oxford is a member of the Athena SWAN Charter for the advancement of gender equality: representation, progression and success for all. The Queen’s College and the Faculty of English are committed to fostering equality, diversity and inclusiveness, and we particularly encourage applications from women, disabled people and people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, as these groups are currently under-represented in the University’s academic staff. We welcome applications from candidates at all career stages, provided they hold a doctoral degree.
