Job Ref: A445-16AB

Applications are invited for a full-time, fixed-term two-year Lectureship in the English programme of the School of English and Media Studies at the Auckland Campus of Massey University. The ability to teach across a range of undergraduate English papers will be a distinct advantage, but the School is particularly interested in candidates with teaching and research expertise in pre-20th Century Literature.

The School of English and Media Studies is established on Massey University’s three campuses in Auckland, Palmerston North, and Wellington. It has a strong record in teaching excellence and pastoral care in an interactive learning environment. Courses are taught in internal and distance learning modes (including online delivery), at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The appointee will be expected to take up duties in time for the start of first semester 2017 (February) in order to lead delivery of 139.275 (Gothic) and 139.305 (20th Century Literature) in Semester 1, and of 139.307 (Victorian Literature) and 139.239 (Literary Landmarks) in Semester 2. Teaching materials for these courses already exist, and the successful candidate will generally be co-teaching in association with another English specialist on another campus. Teaching responsibilities in 2018 will be determined in the light of the developing needs of the programme as well as the successful applicant’s areas of expertise.

The appointee will have a completed PhD in a relevant field, academic publications and other evidence of ongoing research, and experience of teaching English literature at University-level.
