VISITING POSITIONS / LIMITED-TERM APPOINTMENTS[edit | edit source]

Newcastle University (UK) - Research Associate (Postcolonial/Diasporic/World Literatures), 2 Yr Postdoc[edit | edit source]

The School of English Literature, Language and Linguistics is seeking to appoint a postdoctoral Research Associate (full-time for two years) to undertake a project that will expand and enhance the work of postcolonial studies, diasporic and world literatures at Newcastle. The post is funded by the University’s Research Investment Fund and aims to build on the School’s world-leading research in the areas of African-Caribbean, black Atlantic, black British, South Asian and anti-colonial literary/cultural production and builds upon the ongoing international collaboration between Newcastle and New York University: ‘Postcolonial Print Cultures’ https://postcolonialpc.com/about/

You will work within or across one of these research areas, on a discrete research project that aligns with one of the following:

  1. The Mediation of Decolonisation, 1940-1970: this project will explore some aspects of the evolving and intersecting materiality of late colonial and post-colonial media across books, magazines, cinema, radio, newspapers, music and magazines.
  2. Print, Publishing, and the Postcolonial: this project will pursue how the “literary” is formed in relationship to twentieth century print culture, including the connections between the economics and the politics/ideology of publishing within the context of anti-colonial nationalism and diaspora.

Our expectation is that the research will lead to high-quality outputs as well as to one or more applications for substantial external research funding.

The University holds a silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of our good employment practices for the advancement of gender equality.  The University also holds the HR Excellence in Research award for our work to support the career development of our researchers, and is a member of the Euraxess initiative supporting researchers in Europe.
