The Department of French intends to appoint a University Lecturer in French Studies. Applications in any field of French or Francophone Studies are welcome. (The Department offers scheduled papers in linguistics and in literature, thought, and visual culture.) The successful candidate for the post should have either a record of research and publication in the field or be able to demonstrate clear potential for publication. He or she will be expected to take a leading role in the teaching of papers related to his or her research period and in the teaching of language at undergraduate level, to collaborate in the teaching of at least one of the following Faculty M.Phil. courses; Linguistics, European Literature and Culture, Screen Media and Cultures, and to supervise Ph.D. students.
