Stipendiary Lecturership in English

Christ Church invites applications for a fixed-term Stipendiary Lecturer in English during Hilary and Trinity Terms 2023. This is a temporary, fixed-term position to fulfil a current teaching need. It is envisaged that teaching arrangements for English will be reviewed at the end of this period, therefore, the appointment carries with it no expectation of permanent employment at Christ Church.

Applicants should be able to teach the following papers for the Final Honour School in English Language and Literature: Paper 4: 1660-1760 in Hilary Term 2023 and Paper 1: Shakespeare portfolio in Trinity Term 2023. Further details of the courses can be found on the University website at  

The salary will be in the range of £14,381-£16,174 (current rates), according to qualifications and experience. New appointments are usually made at the first point of the scale.

Applicants should have evidence of the skills needed for higher education teaching in tutorial or small group settings, a research record commensurate with the stage of their career; and have, or be close to completing, a doctorate in in English literature within the period specified above, or a closely related field.

Further information, including instructions about how to apply, are available in the appended Further Particulars. The deadline for applications is 12:00 noon on Monday 21 November 2022.

Applications are particularly welcome from women, and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
