Grade 7: £31,076 - £38,183 p.a.

A 12-month fixed-term research and teaching appointment in English Literature is available for an outstanding academic at an early stage of their career.

The postholder will be expected to provide at least 36 hours of Faculty lectures or classes, including delivering the core MSt courses on “Material Texts” (1700-1830 and 1830-1914 strands) and “Textual Cultures” (1700-1830 strand) and the optional “Issues in Editing” course open to all MSt candidates working in the post-1550 period. Individuals will be welcome to offer lectures on other English literature topics, once these obligations have been met, and may be asked to undertake examining/assessing and supervision in areas relevant to their research and teaching.
