The University of Manchester Presidential Academic Fellowship: World Literature, School of Arts, Languages and Cultures. Deadline: 3 April 2018.
As an impressive early career academic, you’ll recognise that securing a Presidential Academic Fellowship at the University of Manchester will empower you to unlock your potential. In addition to a good salary for the duration of your Fellowship, you’ll receive several thousand pounds per annum for research support costs and access to key technology platforms. Your time during this award will be initially dedicated to research, with no or minimal teaching in the first year, and minimal teaching in the second year. Thereafter teaching would increase with each subsequent year of the fellowship. You can look forward to mentoring and assistance in winning external funding and awards.
As a Presidential Academic Fellow, you will join us at an exciting moment. In 2018 we are launching a new programme in World Literature. It will build on our strength in languages and literature, and on current expertise in literary theory, translation and intercultural studies. You will make a vital contribution. We will expect you to be a specialist in any central aspect of world or comparative literature. Ideally you’ll demonstrate expertise in non-western areas and bring to the role a strong profile in theory and methods.
To join us, you will need a relevant PhD or equivalent qualification.
