St Hilda’s College invites applications for a three-year six-hour Stipendiary Lectureship in German from 1 October 2020. The person appointed will hold a doctorate in German, and have experience of teaching German at undergraduate level.

During term the post-holder will be required to undertake a total of six hours per week tutorial teaching for St Hilda’s, averaged over three eight-week terms. The appointee will be expected to teach German literature and language. Specific needs include tutorial coverage of the literary set texts for the Preliminary Examination at the end of the first year and of the modern period of literature (i.e. 1770 to the present) for the Final Honour School (details in the Further Particulars). While the teaching of German conversation and essay-writing is covered by the DAAD-Lektor, the ability to teach translation into and/or out of German is desirable. The post includes additional administrative work for the subject and full involvement with undergraduate admissions. The appointee will serve as Personal Tutor to undergraduates and as College Adviser to postgraduates in German.

The appointee will be paid on a scale from £13,756 (point 1) to £15,471 per annum (current rates) according to experience and qualifications. The successful candidate will also be able to claim a research allowance of £300 per annum (payable against receipts) and will have access to a student entertainment allowance of £400 per annum. The lecturer will be a member of the Senior Common Room, and will be entitled to five meals per week free of charge in term-time.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Wednesday 22 April 2020. Further particulars, including details of how to apply, may be downloaded below or obtained from the Academic Registrar, St Hilda’s College, Oxford OX4 1DY (
