University of Nottingham (UK:Eng) - Teaching Associates in Applied English - Two posts/fixed term, one in Applied Linguistics  [edit | edit source]

Reference: ARTS188319

Job Type: Teaching Department: English

Salary: £30395 to £39609 per annum (pro-rata if applicable) depending on skills and experience. Salary progression beyond this scale is subject to performance. The School of English is seeking to appoint two Teaching Associates to join a new team in developing web-based teaching internationally in the areas of applied linguistics and modern literature in English.          

These are new roles to deliver teaching and create teaching materials as part of a large investment by the University in augmenting web-based learning. The innovative project draws on the latest learning technologies to re-imagine university teaching for the mid-21st century. Courses will be designed to put the student’s individual experience and requirements at the core of the programme, with material and guidance customised around them. This will require thinking that is creative and adventurous, and academic expertise that is not narrowly constrained by any one discipline, literary period, culture, or approach. 

The appointee in Applied Linguistics would need a broad and flexible approach to the field, open, for example, to developing material in discourse analysis, sociolinguistics, corpus linguistics, as well as traditional applied linguistics of language learning and teaching, vocabulary, second language acquisition, and so on. Similarly, the appointee in modern literary studies will be expected to have a wide range of interests and expertise across historical periods, genres and critical approaches. 

Both posts are full-time, offered for a fixed term from 1 September 2019 to 31 August 2020 and will be based in the School of English, Trent Building, University Park Campus. Job share arrangements may be considered. 

The appointees will assist in the design of new courses and web-delivery for new programmes to be delivered by virtual and blended learning formats. The primary purpose of the posts is to create teaching materials for later web delivery. There will be some teaching involved to students currently on the distance masters courses, plus the possibility of a small amount of co-present teaching. The appointees will also work with School colleagues at our campuses in Ningbo and Malaysia, and will work alongside staff members in Nottingham during the project. Mentoring towards further career progression will be offered throughout the period of the posts.

Candidates should have a PhD (or equivalent) in an area related to English language, linguistics and/or literature.  Evidence of the ability to teach at university level is essential, with experience of virtual or blended learning also desirable. A proven record of teaching in multiple or interdisciplinary or comparative areas is essential. An ability to teach across a broad range of topics is essential.          

Further information about the School is available at: www.nottingham.ac.uk/english

Selection Process

The interview process will include a brief presentation of teaching style and philosophy, and a formal interview.   

Informal enquiries may be addressed to the head of the project, Professor Peter Stockwell, email: peter.stockwell@nottingham.ac.uk

Note that applications must be made through the University’s jobs portal. Please do not send applications directly to an email address where they will not be accepted.

Our University has always been a supportive, inclusive, caring and positive community. We warmly welcome those of different cultures, ethnicities and beliefs – indeed this very diversity is vital to our success, it is fundamental to our values and enriches life on campus. We welcome applications from UK, Europe and from across the globe.
