|Salary:||£38,511 to £45,954|

The study of print culture has changed with the production of digital resources and new datasets; equally, digital modes of reading and writing have recast the material practices of print, allowing them to be understood anew. The School of English wishes to appoint a University Fellow in this exciting new area of research, one which recognizes the way that the humanities themselves are being reconfigured in the digital age.
You will be exceptionally well placed to make a significant contribution to the School’s research and grant capture, as well as its excellence in research-based teaching, and will be able to enjoy a thriving research community extending beyond the School of English into the wider Faculty of Arts. Outstanding collections and archives are available in the Brotherton Library, one of the leading research libraries in the UK.
As part of the application process you will be required to upload the following documents:
1. A CV;
2. A list of publications;
3. A supporting statement detailing your research and academic plan (no more than 2 sides of A4, minimum font size 11). As part of the selection process, account will be taken in relation to your research and academic plan, in particular the impact of this and the strategic fit to the University.
