Lecturer in Shakespeare Studies (Education & Research)
University of Exeter -College of Humanities
The University seeks to appoint a permanent full-time Lecturer in Shakespeare Studies to its Cornwall Campus from 1st September 2013, at the latest. Cornwall English is part of the Exeter English Department which in RAE 2008 was rated 1st nationally for ‘world-leading research’. We aim to build on that achievement by appointing a new Lecturer capable of developing an international profile and generating significant grant income.
The successful applicant will already hold a Ph.D. in English Literature, and will have started to publish in any area of Shakespeare studies, including the reception of Shakespeare’s work. They will be able to demonstrate the following qualities and characteristics: an outstanding research profile, with 4* work in this REF cycle; a strong record in attracting research funding, or demonstrable potential to attract such funding; team skills to work in collaboration with existing group members; an active and supportive approach to inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary research that will help to foster interactions and links within the University and with external non-academic partners; the attitude and ability to engage in continuous professional development; the aptitude to develop a variety of strategies to promote and assess learning; and an enthusiasm for delivering undergraduate teaching across the Department’s degree programmes. We are therefore looking for committed and adaptable individuals who, with appropriate training and mentoring, will contribute fully to the life of a vibrant, innovative, and growing English Department.
Appointments will be made within the Education and Research job family, salary range £32,267 to £39,649 Grade F, depending on skills and experience.
