The University of Bristol is seeking to appoint a fixed-term part-time Teaching Associate in Russian from 1 September 2017 to 30 June 2018.

The Department of Russian is an integral part of a dynamic and forward-looking School of Modern Languages in the Faculty of Arts. The Department is one of only a handful in the UK able to offer an extensive range of modules (‘units’) at undergraduate level encompassing Russian and Czech literature, history, thought and cultural studies. In addition to this, Russian language is studied by highly qualified and strongly motivated undergraduates either as a mandatory part of a Single Honours degree, a Joint Honours degree with another one or two modern languages, or a Joint Honours degree with another subject.

An ability to offer research-led teaching and contribute to existing units in Russian literature, history and/or cultural studies is essential, as is the ability to teach Russian language at a range of undergraduate levels. The successful candidate will also support the the Department and School in the development of innovative teaching methods and materials and the dissemination of good teaching practice, and will make an appropriate administrative contribution to the life of the School (as an academic tutor, for example).

The successful candidate will have native or near-native competence in Russian and in English, and is likely to have, or be about to obtain, a relevant postgraduate qualification (PhD) and  to have experience of teaching, ideally in the HE sector.

It is anticipated that interviews will be held in the week commencing 15 May, 2017.

Applications must be made using the University of Bristol’s on-line application system. The closing date is 4 May, 2017.  Informal enquiries should be directed to Subject Lead, Dr Rajendra Chitnis  at R.A.Chitnis@bristol.ac.uk
