“(Two year fixed term from 1st April 2016)

The University of Roehampton has a beautiful parkland campus, located in the heart of south-west London, and offers excellent facilities for staff and students.

We are looking for a Research Fellow in English & Creative Writing to undertake a significant piece of research during the tenure of an award in collaboration with the lead researcher. “Before Shakespeare: The Beginning of London Commercial Theatre” is a two-year research project funded by the AHRC on the first thirty years of the Elizabethan playhouses (c 1565-95). There will be significant archival work, aiming to produce a census of what we know about this period of theatre history and how we know it. There will also be administrative support relating to a number of practice and performance based experiments with Dolphin’s Back and Shakespeare’s Globe. A successful collaboration will result in named co-authorship of an article, essay collection and monograph.

We are looking for applications from candidates with a complementary academic background. Candidates should be highly motivated and willing and able to engage with this collaboration.

To find out more information about the role and what we’re looking for, visit the Working at Roehampton section of our website where you will find full details, how to apply, as well as further information about the benefits of working for us.


The closing date for completed applications is: 22nd February 2016.

Interviews are expected to be held in late February or early March.
