The post that concerned the Job Vacancy at Exeter University contained some incorrect information and a problematic link. Sincere apologies for any inconvenience or confusion this has caused. Here is the correct information:

The College wishes to recruit a full time Teaching Fellow to support the delivery of 19th/20th century literature and critical theory teaching in the Department of English at its Cornwall Campus. This post is available on a fixed term basis from 1st January 2012 until 30th June 2012 and will be based at the Cornwall Campus, near Falmouth.

Location: Cornwall
Salary: 31,798 per annum

The post will include: twelve to fourteen hours of seminar teaching per week (and related marking), convening (leading) module delivery, a number of lectures, personal tutoring, supervision of undergraduate dissertations, and the provision of research and writing support to undergraduate students.

The successful applicant will have completed a PhD and will have a substantial record of scholarship. S/he will be required to demonstrate a capacity for high-quality teaching at university level in the primary area of 19th century English literature, as well as experience in teaching related fields such as critical theory or literature from 1800 to the contemporary.

The successful applicant will possess sufficient breadth or depth of specialist knowledge in the discipline to develop teaching programmes and the provision of learning support and use a range of delivery techniques to enthuse and engage students. They will participate in and develop external networks, for example to contribute to student recruitment, secure student placements, facilitate outreach work, generate income, or build relationships for future activities.
