Lecturer in the History of English
£37,012 - £44,166 p.a. Potential to progress to £49,689 per annum through
sustained exceptional contribution.
Colleagues in the School of English Literature, Language and Linguistics
are known for their international-quality research in English Language,
English Literature, Literary Linguistics, Cultures of the British Isles, Applied
Linguistics, Theatre and Performance, and Creative Writing. And much of
this activity is passed onto students through our research-led approach to
learning and teaching. In recent years five members of staff have received
Senate Awards for Teaching Excellence, and one of our staff has been
awarded a National Teaching Fellowship. The School is housed in a new
Faculty of Arts building which features modern flexible learning, teaching
and research facilities - and a cafe. The School of English plays an active
role in the local community, and our students are encouraged to venture
outside the University to see how some of the ideas they are learning about
can apply in the wider world. We have excellent links with local schools,
libraries and museums, and we regularly undertake a range of different
projects and activities in partnership with these organisations.
The University of Sheffield has been named UK University of the Year in
the 2011 Times Higher Education Awards. We've won this prestigious
award because we're a world-class university in a unique city. We are a
community true to our civic roots and our straightforward approach informs
everything we do, both close to home and around the world. This is an
ideal opportunity for a scholar with an outstanding publication record and
excellent teaching ability to join one of the major centres for English
Language and Linguistics scholarship in the United Kingdom.
The post-holder will design and deliver teaching on the BA in English
Language and Linguistics, the MA in English Language Studies, and the
MA in Culture of the British Isles. He/she will develop the School's research
profile through the production of high quality publications and through
attracting external research funding. The post-holder will be expected to
contribute to the School's presence within the Faculty of Arts and
Humanities, the wider University and, through outreach and knowledge
exchange, in Sheffield and beyond and to carry out appropriate
administrative duties to a high standard.
You will have (or be close to completing) a PhD in the History of English (or
have equivalent experience), proven teaching ability, and be able to
contribute to existing modules on language change and the History of
English at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as
developing new modules in your research period and specialism. The
ability to link with comparable teaching and research interests in the Faculty
of Arts and Humanities is essential for this position. Evidence of public
engagement activities will also be an advantage.
