About Anglia Ruskin University:

Our vibrant, modern University is gaining prominence both nationally and internationally and we have ambitious plans for our future. Our main campuses in the cities of Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough have been transformed with major capital investments. With an annual turnover of £200m and over 38,000 students, we are a major force for higher education in the East of England.

About the role:

Our Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences provides cutting-edge teaching, research and consultancy across a broad spectrum of practice-based and theoretical disciplines. We’re committed to the mutual importance of teaching and research and have shaped our curriculum to ensure that traditional disciplines retain a clear, academic identity that translates effectively into courses with professional relevance.

We’re seeking a committed Lecturer in English Literature to join our thriving English Literature course group, which recruits at undergraduate and postgraduate levels (with 70 PhD students currently registered in the department). English literature at Anglia Ruskin has a distinguished history, with RAE/REF submissions dating back to 1996. In the most recent REF, 65% of our outputs were rated 3* or 4*. We seek an ambitious colleague to help us improve our research profile further for REF2020. We’re equally enthusiastic about excellent teaching and seek to maintain our high levels of student satisfaction.

With a PhD or Professional Doctorate or nearing completion you’ll have proven experience in teaching English modules at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. With a research profile commensurate with the stage of your career, you’ll make a substantial contribution to the thriving research profile of the group, including income generation and the supervision of research students.

We particularly welcome a research interest in seventeenth-century literature or children’s literature.
