Departmental Lecturer in Medieval French
The Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages, in association with St Hilda’s College, are seeking to appoint a Departmental Lecturer in Medieval French from 1 September 2020 until 31 August 2021.
The Departmental Lecturer in Medieval French will contribute to the teaching of Medieval French within the Sub-faculty of French by offering 16 hours of lectures or seminars over the course of the year. Some of the undergraduate lectures might be substituted with participating in the teaching of Medieval French Literature for the MSt in Modern Languages or the MSt in Medieval Studies.
The Departmental Lecturer in Medieval French will also be responsible for providing 8 hours a week of undergraduate tuition in Medieval French literature. They will be expected to give undergraduate tutorials and classes for the Preliminary Examination (= first year of degree course) on the Chastelaine de Vergi (for Paper IV), and for the Final Honour School (= second and fourth years of degree course) on Medieval French literature for the period of literature 1100 - 1530 (Paper VI), on the prescribed texts covered in Paper IX, and on the Special Subject Paper XII on Medieval Subjectivities: The Lyric I Across Boundaries; and to supervise extended or bridging essays as appropriate.
To complement existing teaching provision in Medieval French (Professor Daron Burrows in Michaelmas and Hilary Terms, and Professor Sophie Marnette in Trinity Term), it would be strongly desirable for the successful candidate to have particular expertise in the later medieval period (1300 - 1530).
Applicants must possess: exceptional fluency in French and English, a good undergraduate degree involving French studies, and a PhD or DPhil in the field of Medieval French literature and culture. The selection committee will, in exceptional cases, consider applications from those still to complete their doctorate, provided that they will have submitted it by 1 September 2020.
Additional information and details about how to apply are included in the further particulars which are available below.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 13 March 2020.
