Associate Professorship (or Professorship) of Medieval English Literature

Jesus College, Oxford – Faculty of English Language and Literature

Salary

Combined salary on a scale from £52,815 to £70,919 per annum, increasing each year to the top of the scale, plus an Official Fellows’ Allowance of £ 14,531 per annum, a Responsibility Allowance of £1,706 per annum, and other benefits. A further allowance of £3,078 per annum would be payable by the University upon the award of Full Professor title.

Jesus College, Oriel College and the Faculty of English Language and Literature at the University of Oxford are recruiting a Tutorial Fellow and Professor or Associate Professor of Medieval English Literature, with effect from 1 September 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The appointment will be initially for five years at which point, upon completion of a successful review, the post-holder will be eligible for reappointment to the retiring age. The University of Oxford uses the grade of Associate Professor for most of its senior academic appointments. Associate Professors are eligible for consideration through regular recognition of distinction exercises for award of the title of Full Professor.

Applications are invited from well-qualified candidates who can teach Old English and Middle English at undergraduate level, and who can teach graduate students and have research expertise in Old English (c.650-c.1150), particularly those whose research relates to gender or global connections and/or national and ethnic identities. The successful candidate will be required to enthuse and inspire students at both undergraduate and graduate level through tutorials, classes, lectures and supervision.

The post-holder should hold a doctorate in English or a closely-related subject, or be close to completion (and will need to have submitted their doctorate before taking up the post). Have a record of, and potential to continue to produce, original, important, and rigorous published research in Old English literature commensurate with the candidate’s career stage and individual circumstances. They should be able to demonstrate excellence or the potential for excellence in teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels at the Faculty of English and both Colleges, as well as participating in the administration of the subject and in the wider activities of Jesus and Oriel Colleges.

We particularly encourage applications from women, people with disabilities and Black, Asian, and minority ethnic candidates, all of whom are historically under-represented in Oxford. All applicants will be judged on merit, according to the selection criteria.
