The School of Education invites applications for the position of Senior Lecturer/Lecturer in Children’s Literature and Literacy Studies on the Research and Teaching Track.
The School of Education is a large and dynamic unit which brings together researchers with expertise across all sectors of education: formal and non-formal, pre-school through to higher, adult and community education. It offers undergraduate, postgraduate and CPD courses and hosts the Robert Owen Centre for Educational Change (ROC); the Centre for Research and Development in Adult and Lifelong Learning (CRADALL) and the St. Andrew’s Foundation for Catholic Teacher Education.
The School prides itself on the effective integration of teaching, research, theory, policy and practice. The key feature of its research is its commitment to placing educational research as part of an interdisciplinary agenda to support the development of more equitable societies in the spirit of social justice. The School aims to contribute to producing better places locally, nationally and globally, providing a major source of research-informed evidence that contributes to positive economic and societal impact.
The School is situated within the College of Social Sciences (CoSS) and we welcome applications from candidates keen to contribute to interdisciplinary research, scholarship and knowledge exchange, working collaboratively in taking forward the CoSS interdisciplinary research themes which are: Addressing Inequalities; Challenges in Changing Cities; Digital Society and Economy; Justice, Insecurity and Fair Decision Making; and Sustainable Development.
This post aligns with these themes in addressing inequalities by supporting and extending equitable literacy practices through local and global texts and also aligns with the theme of digital society and economy through including media and digital literacies.
The successful candidate will hold a PhD or equivalent in a related discipline with an extensive and established reputation in research and significant teaching experience in Children’s Literature and Literacy Studies.
This position is open ended and full time.
