Christ's College


Applications are invited for a College Lectureship in English, associated with a Fellowship of Christ's College. Although applications are welcome from candidates working in any field of English Literature, preference may be given to those working in the periods 1350-1550 and post-1700.

The College Lectureship will be tenable from 1 October 2001 and will be for three years in the first instance, renewable for a further period of up to two years. The successful candidate will be expected to reside in Cambridge, to undertake eight hours of teaching a week for the College during Full Term in the first year rising to twelve hours a week in the second and subsequent years. Candidates should normally teach a wide range of the topics falling within Parts I and II of the Cambridge English Tripos and may be required to act as Director of Studies in English. The salary will be on an incremental scale between £17,666 and £23,140 (reviewed annually in line with national academic stipends), at a starting point depending on age and experience. The stipend is subject to a small deduction if the Fellow is resident in College.

Letters of application (no forms) should be sent to the Master's Secretary, Christ's College, Cambridge, CB2 3BU, to arrive by 18 July 2001. These should include details of qualifications and experience, and the names and addresses of two persons who have agreed to act as academic referees. Candidates should arrange for their referees to write directly to the Master's Secretary so that references are received by the closing date (18 July). Short-listed candidates will be asked for copies of written work and will be interviewed on Thursday, 6 September.
