|School/Institute:||School of English|
|Salary:||£38,511 to £45,954|
|Closing Date:||Wednesday 30 September 2015|
Work in the field of English literature is being transformed by developments in textual studies. We are currently in a golden age of editing in which a generation of new work is able to draw on recent technological advances and changed ideas of the canon. The School of English has a long-established international reputation in textual scholarship and wishes to develop this further by appointing a Fellow in this developing field in one of the following areas of English literature: Medieval, Early Modern, or Victorian.
You will contribute to the University’s ambition to excel at REF2020, with a sustained record of internationally excellent, and some world-leading, publications. Acting as catalyst for collaboration across the School and also potentially across the Faculty, the Fellow will organise seminars with international speakers, network internationally, and build local collaborations. You will also co-supervise PhDs and work on and contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in the School of English. You will also be expected to submit grant applications for personal fellowships, for example, an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) early-career Fellowship; Leverhulme Fellowship; Horizon 2020, and small individual or networking research grants as well as work with colleagues across the schools to submit larger grants.
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.
