Merton College

Merton College proposes to appoint a stipendiary lecturer in French for two years from 1 October 2003, to teach up to six hours a week. The lecturer will be paid at a point on the stipendiary lecturers' scale (currently £9,133 to £10,562 a year, plus a book allowance of £637) with entitlement to join USS and membership of the Common Room, with the right to take lunch and dinner free of charge.

The successful candidate, who should have completed (or be about to complete) her/his doctoral studies, will specialize in any area of modern French studies (post-1800). He/she will be expected to teach language (mainly translation from French and essay work) and literature, including all of the texts studied for the Prelims examination and as much as possible of the post-1800 Finals syllabus (Papers VIII, XI, and certain Paper XIIs). In addition to her/his teaching duties, the successful candidate will be expected to attend Warden and Tutors' meetings during term, to help with the organization of modern languages within the College, to lend pastoral support to the modern linguists, and to assist with admissions.

Applicants should send a copy of their curriculum vitae to the Tutorial Secretary, Merton College, Oxford, OX1 4JD (tel. 01865 276329, fax 01865 286500, e-mail clare.bass@admin.merton.ox.ac.uk) by 16 May 2003, and should ask two referees to write directly to the Tutorial Secretary by this date. Interviews will be held in College in early June.
