JOB VACANCY: Lecturer in English
University of Southampton
Location: Avenue Campus
Salary: £27,428 to £33,734
Full Time Fixed Term
Closing Date: Wednesday 25 January 2012
Interview Date: To be confirmed
The University of Southampton seeks to appoint a full-time, two year fixed term Lecturer in English, specialising in the period 1880-1920. English at Southampton comprises a varied and lively team of people whose teaching and research interests range from the early medieval period to the contemporary, and include film, creative writing, Jewish studies, and book history. The work of individual members of staff crosses period, geographical, disciplinary, and faculty boundaries (including collaborations with law, and the sciences), and we welcome applications from people whose work will expand our ideas of what ‘English’ does in both teaching and research.
You will have a PhD in a relevant topic, and a proven track record of publication. Post-doctoral research is desirable. You will have a strong intellectual grasp of the principal issues affecting late nineteenth-century, empire, and/or the global roots of modernism, and a willingness to make links between English and other disciplines. You will be able to communicate your views enthusiastically to a broad undergraduate and postgraduate student body, engage productively with staff across the discipline, the Faculty and beyond, and help to build Victorian and early twentieth-century studies at Southampton.
The appointment will be made within the Lecturer salary range, depending on qualifications and experience, to begin on 1 May 2012. For specific informal enquiries relating to this post, please contact: Professor Ros King, Head of English via email at R.King@soton.ac.uk
