Applications are invited for a full-time, open-ended Lectureship in English Literature in the Department of English and Humanities at Birkbeck College, University of London.
The successful candidate will work on Victorian literature and culture, contributing to and complementing our historically strong research and teaching profile in this period. The Department is currently expanding its interests in Digital Humanities, Medical Humanities and Environmental Humanities and candidates with a track record of research and publication in one or more of these areas are particularly encouraged to apply. The postholder may be asked to initiate and foster links with burgeoning work in the Department and with relevant partner institutions in these priority areas.
The successful candidate will take an active role in developing the work of the Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies and the Centre’s open access journal, 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth-Century. The Centre was founded in 1996 to foster Birkbeck’s unique research environment in the long nineteenth century (ca. 1790-1914) and to disseminate its research through innovative projects, conferences, seminar series and exhibitions.
The postholder will teach at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in the area of Victorian Literature and Culture, and may also be required to contribute to the teaching of English Literature and Cultural Studies more broadly. The successful candidate will also be expected to recruit and supervise PhD students in his/her research and teaching areas.
You will need a PhD in a relevant subject area, a strong publication record and ambitious publication plans, as well as teaching experience at HE level.
The closing date for completed applications is midnight on 22 May 2016. Interviews will be held in mid to late June 2016. For further information on this opportunity contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/AUE293/lecturer-a-b-in-victorian-literature-and-culture.
