Full Time
The School of Arts, Languages and Cultures at the University of Manchester invites applications for a 0.8 FTE Lecturer in Theatre Studies (teaching focused), tenable from 28 October 2019 for a period of 12 months (to cover maternity leave). The School seeks an exceptional lecturer with a clear track record of teaching in theatre and performance at University level. Applications from academics with expertise in contemporary British theatre are invited, and preference will be given to applicants with a good track record of work in an area of industry practice as well as academic contexts (for example, in writing for performance, theatre criticism, devising etc.). The successful candidate will be expected to make a strong contribution to the subject area's teaching in contemporary theatre and performance at all levels of the undergraduate curriculum in Drama, including teaching modules on Post-Thatcher British theatre, theatre and (post)modernism, and the concepts and methods of theatre and performance studies. S/he will make a contribution to the administration of the subject area under the supervision of the Head of Drama, with a special focus on preparing students for employment in relevant areas of the creative and cultural industries. Whilst this post is teaching-focused, the Drama department has a vibrant research culture, and the successful candidate's contribution to sustaining and extending this research culture will be supported as appropriate to the post.

As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
