The School of English Literature, Language & Linguistics wishes to appoint a Lecturer in Victorian Literature. You will be joining a dynamic team of researchers whose work explores Victorian literature in intellectual, material and formal contexts within and beyond the borders of Great Britain. We interpret ‘the Victorian’ in global and local terms and are open to a range of scholarly approaches (including interdisciplinary, archival, digital and intermedial). We would particularly welcome applications from scholars with specialisms in poetry, periodicals, theatre and performance studies. You will have an excellent publication record for their career stage and will demonstrate the clear potential to make a significant contribution to the School’s research culture.
You will be expected to contribute to teaching at Stage 1 and 2 and will be given the opportunity to design and deliver a specialist module at Stage 3. Lecturing staff also participate in the School’s thriving postgraduate culture by teaching on MA programmes and supervising PhD students.
