Durham University (UK) - Lecturer (= TT Asst. Professor) - Interdisciplinary Literary StudiesEdit

Applications are invited from outstanding candidates who have research and teaching interests in interdisciplinary literary studies, in an area such as (but not restricted to) digital humanities, literature and the environment, literature and visual culture, or cross-media narrative. The successful candidate will be expected to have an excellent research and teaching profile, commensurate with career stage, which will complement the Department's existing strengths. He or she will be able to make a significant contribution to undergraduate teaching and to teach widely and flexibly across a range of periods and subjects. He or she may also be asked to contribute to postgraduate teaching and examining. The successful candidate will be a research leader and will be expected to contribute to one or more of Durham's interdisciplinary research groups or centres.

The appointment is the equivalent of tenure-track, i.e. potentially permanent; "lecturer" in the UK is the equivalent of "assistant professor."

The Department of English Studies is one of the leading English departments in the United Kingdom, with a lively research culture and excellent students. In 2016 it was named the best English department in the UK for the fourth successive year by the Complete University Guide (cp. the US News and World Report rankings, within the US). It is consistently ranked in the top 5 English departments in the UK in various league tables. In the 2015 NSS 96% of Durham students reported themselves satisfied with their studies.
