Lecturer (Writing for Children and Young Adults), Manchester Metropolitan University
Deadline: Sun 27 Jun 2021
The Department of English seeks to appoint a Lecturer in Writing for Children and Young Adults. The post is suitable for candidates whose research focus is either critical or creative, but it will be desirable for candidates to have experience of teaching both writing in and the critical study of this field.

The Department of English, delivering a range of undergraduate, postgraduate and short courses, is staffed by one of the strongest and most diverse new-university research groups in the UK.

The Department fosters a rich and diverse research culture in both critical Film and Literature scholarship and creative writing. It hosts undergraduate single honours programmes in English, Film and Media Studies and Creative Writing, and joint honours programmes combining specialisms both within and beyond the Department.

Our MA programmes in English Studies, Creative Writing and Publishing have expanded significantly in recent years and have a current population of more than 200 students.

All candidates will be expected to have a doctoral level qualification in a relevant area or an established professional reputation as a writer of fiction for children or young adults, as evidenced in national broadcast media appearances, national broadsheet and literary press reviews, or major literary prize success.

They will be expected to have a track record of publishing high quality critical or creative research outputs which meet the quality threshold for submission to the Research Excellence Framework.

Salary: £35,845 to £41,526 (Grade 8) Hours: Part Time Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract (Job Ref: eArcu-3598)
