The Department of English at the University of Southampton invites applications for the post of Lecturer (Level 4) in English Literature, 1600 - 1720. This is a permanent, full-time position, available from 4 January 2016.

English at Southampton comprises a varied and lively team of people whose teaching and research interests range from the early medieval period to the contemporary. The Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies and the Southampton Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies underpin the scholarly activity in the field specified by the post. The work of individual members of staff crosses period, geographical, disciplinary, and faculty boundaries (including collaborations with law, economics and the sciences), and we welcome applications from people whose work will expand our ideas of what English can do in both teaching and research.

Applications are invited from scholars with active research and teaching interests in any literature in English from the period 1600 - 1720. The ability to draw connections, and indeed contrasts, between literatures and cultures of this time and those of earlier and later periods would be an advantage.

The successful applicant must have completed a PhD or equivalent in a relevant field and must show a developing profile of international excellence in research and publications, together with potential for attracting research funding. You will be expected to contribute to research-led teaching at all levels of the English programme and to play an active role in our administrative team.

The appointment will be made in the salary range above, depending on qualifications and experience, to begin on 1 January 2016. For further enquiries about this post, please contact the Head of English, Professor Daniel Brown by email Further details can be found at
