Exeter College proposes, if there is a suitable candidate, to appoint a Fixed-Term Official Fellow and Lecturer in English Literature, 1550 – 1830. The position, which is strictly temporary, will be tenable for an initial period of two years from 1 October 2014 until 30 September 2016, with the possibility of renewal for a third and final year until 30 September 2017.

The main duties of the post are to undertake tutorial or class teaching of undergraduates up to a maximum of twelve (weighted) hours per week averaged over the three eight-week terms of the academic year, to set and mark college examinations, to participate in the undergraduate admissions process, to participate in the governance of the college, and to engage in advanced study and research.

The college has a preference for applications from those able to teach the whole of the range 1550 – 1830, but particularly important is the ability to teach the following Final Honour School papers: Paper 1 (Shakespeare), Paper 3 (1550 – 1660), and Paper 4 (1660 – 1760), as well as supervising any dissertations falling within the period 1550 – 1830. In addition to these papers, an ability to teach some or all of FHS Paper 5 (1760 – 1830) will be considered an advantage.

The successful candidate will have:

(a) The proven ability, or the potential, to provide excellent tutorial and small group teaching in a range of undergraduate topics;

(b) The ability to undertake pastoral responsibilities;

(c) The ability to undertake college administration and duties, and to co-operate in the running of English Language & Literature in the college, and in college affairs more generally;

(d) By 1 October 2014, candidates must have obtained a PhD (e.g. successful viva voce examination), or have achieved an equivalent research profile, in a relevant field within English Literature;

(e) An excellent research record, appropriate to the stage of the candidate’s career, with evidence of (or evidence of potential for) producing distinguished scholarship and research in English.

The fellow will be appointed at a point commensurate with experience on the Senior Tutors’ Committee’s Register of Approved Payments for Fixed-Term Fellows, points 1 – 4, (currently £27,047 – £29,541 p.a.). In addition, a Housing Allowance of £8,153 p.a. will be payable, plus other benefits.
