University Lecturership in English Literature (in association with a Tutorial Fellowship at Balliol College)
University of Oxford
The Faculty of English Language and Literature, in association with Balliol College, proposes to appoint a University Lecturer in English Literature and the history of the book 1450-1650 from 1 October 2013 or as soon as possible thereafter. The history of the book will be interpreted broadly, including (but not limited to) descriptive and analytical bibliography; textual scholarship and criticism; the social and cultural production, circulation and consumption of texts; and codicology. The appointee’s research need not have an exclusive focus on the history of the printed book. The successful candidate will be offered the A.C. Bradley-J.C. Maxwell Tutorial Fellowship in English Literature 1350-1660 at Balliol College. Salary will be on a combined University and College scale up to a maximum of £57,581 per annum.
The appointed person will be required to provide thirty-six lectures per year or equivalent (in lectures and classes) for the English Faculty; to provide, for every week of full term, six hours per week of tutorial teaching or equivalent for the College; and to undertake examining and graduate supervision when requested. The successful candidate will have a doctorate in a relevant field, an excellent record in teaching, research and published scholarship in English literature in the period 1450-1650 and will be able to supervise and examine graduates in this field. The College requirements for teaching are for small-group and tutorial teaching from 1350-1660. The appointed person will also be expected to contribute to administration in the Faculty and the College.
The closing date is 12.00 pm on Tuesday 5th March 2013.
