Il Dipartimento di Italianistica dell’Università di Durham (Gran Bretagna) offre 1 posto di lettore da settembre 2014. È richiesta una specializzazione in italianistica dall’epoca dell’unità (1861), in particolare su materie letterarie e storiche. Le domande devono pervenire entro il 10 dicembre 2013.
The Department of Italian at Durham University seeks to appoint a permanent full-time Lecturer in Italian from September 2014.
Applications are sought from candidates specialising in Italian studies from the Unification (1861) to the present day. Applications are particularly welcome from those specialising in subjects that chime with the broader strengths of the School, including literature, visual culture, cultural and intellectual history. Research conducted in this post will be encouraged to have impact beyond academia; a clear understanding of the impact agenda of the UK research councils is highly desirable.
The successful candidate will undertake research, teaching and administration at a level appropriate to their skills and experience.
Appointment at Grade 7 is appropriate for candidates who are likely to be early-career researchers with proven expertise in a relevant area of Italian Studies, some exposure to University-level teaching, a developing record of high-quality publications, demonstrable potential for producing research that generates impact (broadly understood) beyond the academic community, and demonstrable potential for the generation of grant funding.
Appointment at Grade 8 is broadly comparable, but commensurate with a greater amount of experience and achievement, including an ability to attract and successfully supervise doctoral students, a mature record of excellent publications, a record of producing research that generates impact (broadly understood) beyond the academic community, and funding success.
The successful candidate will be given a reduced teaching and administrative load during the three-year probationary period and will be supported in developing a sophisticated research portfolio.
