Grade 7 - £31,076 - £38,183 p.a.

Full time, fixed term for 10 months covering staff leave

We are seeking an enthusiastic and suitably qualified academic lecturer to cover teaching in Japanese language and literature during staff leave.  These teaching responsibilites will require approximately 10 hours per week contact time with students during term.

The lecturer will give lectures and teaching in small groups for undergraduates and graduate students. This will include lectures on Classical Japanese Literature, Classical Japanese Language, and Modern Japanese.  He/she will set and mark examinations, supervise dissertations, and assist with admissions at both undergraduate and post-graduate levels.  The lecturer will assist in coordinating undergraduate courses in Japanese and the Master's degrees in Japanese Studies; she/he will also conduct scholarly research in these fields and otherwise contribute to current research.  The lecturer will act as first contact for students of Japanese within Queen’s College (October 2017 to March 2018) and Hertford College (April to July 2018), including on matters relating to academic guidance, attendance, conduct, coursework, performance, and welfare.

With a relevant postgraduate qualification (preferably a doctorate) in a subject related to Japanese Studies, preferably with a specialisation in pre-modern Japanese literature and language, you will be able to teach using classical and modern Japanese primary sources. You will demonstrate experience of research, or the potential for advanced research in the field of Japanese Studies, with a publication record appropriate to your career stage.  We also require excellent communication, interpersonal, and organisational skills, and a willingness to undertake administrative tasks. Previous teaching experience, including with small groups, would be an advantage.

This is a full time post for a fixed period of 10 months.
