College Lectureship and Fellowship in English (1660-1870) - 1 Year Fixed Term Appointment

Applications are invited from suitably qualified applicants for a College Lectureship in English associated with a Fellowship at Christ's College.

The Lectureship is intended to provide a valuable development opportunity for a fixed term to an individual at the beginning of their academic career to allow them to build teaching skills, a publication record and to undertake other academic activity with a view to obtaining a University appointment in Cambridge or elsewhere.  It will be tenable from 1 September 2020 to 31 August 2021 (without the possibility of renewal) or for a similar period with dates to be agreed.
