Goldsmiths, University of London, is proud of its reputation for innovative and challenging thinking across its wide range of disciplines and for research-led teaching. With over 800 students at all levels and 45 established academic staff, the Department of English & Comparative Literature is one of the largest in Goldsmiths and hosts the Goldsmiths’ Writers’ Centre (home of the Goldsmiths Prize for innovative fiction) and the Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies.

We are looking to appoint a lecturer in American Literature and Culture to bolster our wide-ranging existing team, contribute to teaching on our successful BA and MA programmes, and supervise MPhil and PhD students. We welcome applications from suitably qualified candidates.

An interest in African American literature or American literature in a global context (transatlantic, transnational, postnational), and the ability to augment the current provision of the Department may be an advantage.

You will have a PhD in American Literature or a related area and a successful track record of research and publication, as appropriate to your career stage. You will demonstrate further potential for excellent research and a commitment to public engagement.

The closing date for applications is 18 February 2017.
