Starting Salary: Grade 7a, £32,267

“We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer with research interests in literature of the period 1550-1640, who will join a successful, established English programme, delivering a range of degrees at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. An ability to teach Shakespeare, early modern drama and other literature of the early modern period is a requirement of the post; research interests in Shakespeare and/or other early modern dramatists would be an advantage, as would openness to teaching modules outside the candidate’s period of specialisation. Third-year options run by previous Early Modernists at Keele on Shakespeare on Film have proved popular in the past not only with English students but also with Media and Film Studies students; it would be an advantage (although not by any means essential) if candidates for the current vacancy were able to develop a similarly filmic offering at level 3. Candidates for the position will be engaged in high-quality research, suitable for submission to the forthcoming Research Excellence Framework.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to: Professor Susan Bruce, Head of the School of Humanities. Email:, tel 01782 734119″

Closing Date: 18 April 2013
