The Department of Music, Film, Theatre seeks to appoint a Lecturer in Theatre and Performance Studies. Candidates’ research strengths may be in any area of performance and/or theatre; however, applications are especially sought from those with expertise in the directing and dramaturgy of play-based theatre, particularly, though not necessarily, of the early modern period. Candidates will possess a PhD and be expected to develop and maintain an internationally significant research profile, whether through publication and/or practice-as-research. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to mixed mode teaching delivery of Theatre/Performance at BA, MA and PhD levels, leading lectures, seminars and practice-based workshops, and to assist with other aspects of the running of the Department and the delivery of its academic programmes.

Based in the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies, you will be a part of a vibrant creative community of scholars and production staff. The department has a long record of internationally-recognised achievement in research and teaching. As part of the Drama Department, it was awarded a 5* rating in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise and achieved an excellent rating in the RAE 2008. The department houses the University’s Theatre Collection, which constitutes one of the largest archives in the world of British performance and theatre history. Current research interests amongst staff include work in historical theatre reconstruction, vernacular dramatic traditions of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, adaptation and translation, live art and cross-media performance as well as investigations into related histories.

The post is available from 1 September 2013.
