The role

The Department of English Studies at Durham University seeks to appoint an Assistant Professor in Eighteenth-Century Literature (Grade 7 or 8). The successful candidate will have research and teaching interests in the field of literature of the long eighteenth century. Applications are particularly welcome from candidates with interests in poetry and poetics or non-fictional prose, although specialists in other aspects of the eighteenth century are also encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will join and contribute to a department with existing strengths in many aspects of literature of the period, including the novel, poetry and drama.


The successful candidate will be able to provide evidence of outstanding research potential and/or achievement in any area of the literature of the long eighteenth century and will be expected to develop undergraduate and postgraduate modules reflecting their research specialism, as well as to teach broadly on the Department’s curriculum as appropriate.
