This role is full time but we will consider requests for flexible working arrangements including potential job shares.

The School of Modern Languages and Cultures seeks to appoint an outstanding candidate to a twelve-month fixed term full-time Teaching Fellowship in Japanese Studies. The appointment is tenable from 1 September 2018. The successful candidate will be expected to provide excellent teaching and carry out service to the School. We welcome applications from exceptional teachers with an ability to contribute to teaching Japanese literature and culture, and core language courses in Japanese to undergraduates studying for the BA in Modern Languages and Cultures and, potentially, to postgraduates on the MA in Translation Studies.

The post of Teaching Fellow will involve a significant teaching load; there may be related scholarship and the opportunity for administrative duties which relate to education and pedagogy. The post has arisen to provide temporary cover for teaching duties while a colleague on the academic track is on research leave. The post will commence on 1 September 2018 and will end on 31 August 2019 with no opportunity for an extension beyond this point.

Presentations and interviews are currently planned for Friday 6th July 2018.
