The successful candidates will be excellent researchers, holding or close to completing a PhD or equivalent qualifications and with ambitious future agendas for research, impact, and external funding bids that complement and expand current activity in the Department. The appointees will be excellent teachers, and will contribute at all degree programme levels, including both core and specialist modules.

How to participate

Applications are welcome both from candidates who undertake research in cultural study (broadly defined) and from those who undertake research in linguistics. The Department will give consideration both to applicants who specialize in one language area, and to those who specialize in more than one language.
The Department welcomes applications from specialists in any relevant time period, country, or geographical area, and also from those who undertake interdisciplinary work. 

Areas of particular interest to the Department include: Translation & Interpreting; Modern Languages & Technology (including Inter-medial studies); Language Pedagogy; Exile; Sexuality; Atlantic Studies/Hemispheric Studies/Global cultural studies; Aesthetics and/or Cognitive Literary studies, but consideration will be given to all outstanding candidates.  

The Department of Modern Languages sits within the School of Languages, Cultures, Art History and Music in the College of Arts and Law. The College of Arts and Law is recognised as one of the strongest and largest concentrations of Humanities and Law scholars in the UK.  The College’s results in REF 2014 show its research to be amongst the best in the world, with six of the College's units of assessment ranked in the top 5 in the UK.  The College is committed to developing the careers of all staff and has introduced an enhanced package of support for individual scholarship including generous study-leave arrangements, alongside which the University has created a suite of programmes to foster the development of future academic leaders.  As members of the College of Arts and Law, the Lecturers/Senior Lecturers will join a lively and flourishing community with opportunities for intellectual and other leadership, challenging and rewarding teaching, and a collegiate and highly ambitious research environment.
