The School is home to the creative disciplines and humanities subjects, and has 1200 students at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The English Literature team at DMU is proud of its commitment to excellence in teaching and its outstanding research profile: English was the highest-ranking subject by GPA at DMU in REF2021.

The School of Humanities and Performing Arts wishes to appoint a full-time, permanent Lecturer in English Literature to contribute to teaching on our undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes in English. The successful candidate will be required to contribute to module development and administration, and to carry out other duties consistent with the post, such as supervising dissertation projects, acting as personal tutor to students, participating in Open Days, and attending relevant subject, school, and faculty meetings.

Ideal Candidate
