Creative, ambitious and keen to develop transformative research, you will relish this excellent opportunity to drive your academic career to a higher level. 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 respond to the exciting opportunity presented by Manchester being designated a UNESCO City of Literature and part of UNESCO’s international Creative Cities network. Our community of English, American Studies and Creative Writing staff brings together scholars and creative writers whose work promotes the role of literature as a source of creativity and engagement, in a city that is home to several world class libraries. You will conduct research on the relationship between literature, modernity and the city in the local and/or global context, from the Victorian times to the present.

 

To join us, you will need a relevant PhD or equivalent qualification. You’ll bring to the role a sustained record of publication output. Crucially, you will demonstrate the ability to develop a coherent world-leading research programme, with new concepts and ideas to extend intellectual understanding. You have what it takes to organise resources and deliver results to deadlines. Your excellent communication and interpersonal skills also equip you to build a team, and to inspire and engage students. The determination to win your own funding will be key to your success.
