St John's College


Applications are invited from suitably qualified men and women for a one-year stipendiary College Lectureship in German, with effect from 1 October 2004.

The Lecturer will be required to give up to six hours of undergraduate teaching a week, divided between St John's College and St Catherine's College. The successful candidate must be able to prepare students for the preliminary examinations at the end of the first year (requiring the study of literary set texts and grammar revision) and to teach at least substantial parts of Papers VIII and X. These involve a range of literary authors and topics in the period from 1760 to the present day, and a group of authors prescribed for special study (see http://www.mod-langs.ox.ac.uk/guides/2002/German.pdf).

The successful candidate will also be required to undertake a certain amount of language teaching, to assist with the administration of Modern Languages in St John's College, and with the pastoral care of students and undergraduate admissions process in both Colleges. The salary will be £11,095 (under review), together with certain benefits and allowances. A shared teaching room will be provided.

There are no further particulars for this post. However, the Fellow in German at St John's College, Professor Ritchie Robertson, will be available to answer informal enquiries about the teaching required (e-mail ritchie.robertson@sjc.ox.ac). Applications (original plus four copies), with details of teaching experience, career, research, publications, and the names and addresses of two referees, should be sent to the Academic Administrator, St John's College, Oxford, OX1 3JP. Applicants should ask their referees to write directly to the Academic Administrator. The deadline for both references and applications is Thursday, 19 February. It is hoped that interviews will take place on Friday, 5 March.

St John's College is committed to equal opportunities.
