The School of English wishes to appoint a Lecturer in Shakespeare Studies, from 1 September 2012.
The School seeks a scholar and critic with a primary research focus on Shakespeare studies. The successful applicant will have a doctorate, an established research profile in the field, and the capacity to bring dynamic development to the School’s teaching and research on Shakespeare at all levels. S/he will have strong and varied experience in university teaching, and will be able to teach and supervise more broadly in early modern literature and culture. The School does not seek at this time to appoint a drama-in-performance specialist. The appointee will contribute to the School’s undergraduate and postgraduate work by convening and sharing lecture-modules, teaching seminar groups, and supervising MA and PhD students on Shakespeare and related topics. A strong contribution to the research culture of the School will be expected. A record of applications for external research funding, commensurate with the experience of the applicant, will be an advantage, as will the capacity and willingness to network and co-develop collaborative research projects.
Candidates with a serious interest in one or more of the following may gain an advantage:
The reception of Shakespeare in later literature and culture, including film and other media; Shakespeare and theory (e.g. psychoanalysis, new historicism, post-structuralism, feminism); Ethnicities and/or sexualities in Shakespeare studies; Digital-humanities approaches in Shakespeare and early-modern studies; Shakespeare and the printed book
Closing date: 5pm, Wednesday 6th June 2012
