Senior Teaching Associate in Italian
Location: Bristol, UK
The University of Bristol is seeking to appoint a fixed-term full-time Senior Teaching Associate in Italian from 24 September 2018 to 23 September 2020. This is replacement cover as the current incumbent has been awarded a Leverhulme Trust Major Research Fellowship for this period.
The Department of Italian 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 Italian literature, film, culture, thought, history, and politics. In addition to this, Italian 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.
As a Senior Teaching Associate in Italian an ability to design new units and contribute to existing units in Italian literature, cultural studies, politics, history and/or film is essential, as is the ability to teach Italian language at a range of levels. As part of this role you will support the department and school in the development of innovative teaching methods and materials and the dissemination of good teaching practice, and will make an administrative contribution to the life of the school (as an academic tutor, for example).
You will have a high level of competence in Italian and in English, and are likely to have, or be about to obtain, a relevant postgraduate qualification (PhD) and will have experience of teaching, ideally in the HE sector.
Applications must be made using the University of Bristol’s on-line application system. The closing date is midnight on Monday 30 April 2018.
Interviews will be held on Thursday 17 May 2018 (shortlisting will take place on Tuesday 8 May 2018). Informal enquiries should be directed to Subject Lead, Professor John Foot at firstname.lastname@example.org.
