Keble College


Keble College invites applications for a Stipendiary Lectureship in Geography for the academical year 2005-06. The starting date will be 1 October 2005. The successful candidate will be expected to provide four hours of tutorial teaching for undergraduates a week averaged over the 24-week academical year.

Candidates should have teaching experience in the field of Physical Geography. They should be able to contribute to the teaching of the Prelims Physical Geography paper, the Final Honour School paper Geographical Environment: Physical, and to assist in advising students on their dissertations. An ability to teach for other courses, especially Geographical Techniques (Prelims) would be an advantage. Information about these courses is available at http://www.geography.ox.ac.uk/. In addition to teaching duties, the Lecturer will be expected to set and mark College examinations, participate in undergraduate admissions, and assist colleagues with the routine administration of Geography and the pastoral care of undergraduates reading Geography.

The post might suit someone who is about to complete or has recently completed a doctoral thesis. There is no age limit for applicants. This post could be held in conjunction with another similar post, but Keble would expect to be accorded priority in interviewing for undergraduate admissions. The salary is on a scale of £9,186 to £10,270 (review pending). The Lecturer will be entitled to four free meals a week during full term, the use of a computer, and a shared teaching room. In addition, the post-holder will receive an entertainments allowance of £387 a year for the purpose of entertaining undergraduates.

Further particulars are available from the Senior Tutor, Keble College, Oxford, OX1 3PG. Letters of application should include a statement of the candidate's research interests and teaching experience, and an indication of those parts of the syllabus the candidate would be willing and able to teach, as well as a curriculum vitae and the names of two referees. Candidates should ask their referees to write directly to the Senior Tutor. Letters of application and references should reach the Senior Tutor of Keble College by 23 May. Informal enquiries about this post may be made to Dr Richard Washington (e-mail Richard.Washington@keb.ox.ac.uk).
