Minimum requirements are a Ph. D. in English Literature, a good teaching record, and a clearly defined research agenda.

The English Language and Literature Department currently consists of six full-time faculty members, teaching an undergraduate programme that covers British, Irish and postcolonial literature, and ranges from the Anglo-Saxons to the present day. We have particular research and teaching strengths in Victorian Literature, postcolonial literature and theory, and the Renaissance. We would welcome applications from scholars who can either complement or add to our existing research and teaching strengths.
