You will contribute to, or otherwise complement, our existing research strengths in this area, which include early modern literature and religion, history of the book, classical reception, Renaissance drama, early modern natural philosophy, and the history of emotions. You will also be developing an outstanding research record by undertaking high-quality, innovative research and seeking to publish in leading venues.
A PhD in English (any period) or related area is essential, together with an appropriate academic teaching qualification or a willingness to complete the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice. You must have extensive knowledge of a research field and be able to use a range of teaching techniques and methodologies. Evidence of a research profile and publishing of articles and papers in academic journals is required.
