Lecturer in Creative and Professional Writing, University of Wolverhampton
Deadline: Thu 26 May 2022
The School of Humanities is seeking to appoint a Lecturer to join its team of award-winning writers within the department of Creative and Professional Writing. This position will be permanent 0.5 from 1st August 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter.

You will be a creative writer with a track record of published or forthcoming work, and a proven ability as an excellent teacher at HE level.

A PhD in Creative and/or Critical Writing or relevant discipline (or being demonstrably close to the completion of one) is highly desired, but a strong research plan working towards doctoral qualification, and specifically to the School’s 2027 REF submission, is essential.

You will play an active role in the ongoing development of both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, including MRes, and PhD supervision, by designing and delivering your own modules and participating fully in curriculum design. 

We are especially interested in hearing from candidates with a pedagogical and research interest in Creative Non-Fiction, including areas of Life Writing, Literary Travel Writing, Storytelling, Screenwriting and Eco-narratives. Research, publication and interest in Digital and Transmedia Narratives is also an advantage but not essential.

The University of Wolverhampton is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all suitably qualified professionals from all backgrounds.
