The School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia is looking for a full-time Lecturer in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century literature.
You will be joining the School’s thriving medieval and early modern research community, in Renaissance England’s second city, Norwich. Your expertise will complement our existing shared areas of specialism, such as humanism and historiography, archives and book history, internationalism and regionalism, although we welcome and encourage applications from experts across early modern literary studies.
We are committed to inspiring our students through teaching which is informed both by excellent research and by innovative pedagogy, and you will be expected to teach both within and beyond our full range of early modern undergraduate and postgraduate provision; including, for example, modules on seventeenth-century literature, Shakespeare, and early modern women’s writing, in addition to the usual teaching and administrative duties of a full-time lecturer. We are dedicated to transforming our research into exciting public engagement and impact work through local and national partnerships, such as through our Unlocking the Archive project (www.unlockingthearchive.co.uk) which works with organisations including the Norfolk Heritage Centre and National Trust. We aim to foster an environment of collegial support both within our own medieval and early modern community and within the School more broadly. We look forward to receiving your application.
This full-time, indefinite post is available from 1 September 2021.
We strongly encourage applicants from Black, Asian or other minority ethnic backgrounds and welcome applications from all protected groups as defined by the Equality Act 2010. Appointment will be made on merit.
Closing date: 19 July 2021.
