Applications are invited for an 3 year fixed-term, full-time position as Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in English (US equivalent Assistant/Associate Professor) within the School of English and Media Studies at Massey University (New Zealand).
We are looking for a candidate with research and teaching strengths in twentieth century literature.

As the successful appointee you will be expected to make a substantial contribution to the School's core courses in English literary studies ("Introduction to English Studies" and/or "Literary Landmarks: Words that Changed the World"), and contribute to the ongoing development of the undergraduate and postgraduate English programmes.
The Massey English BA English major consists of three literary strands - nation and period, genre and theme, and New Zealand and Pacific - and a fourth strand of creative and applied writing courses cross-listed from related programmes. Candidates are also encouraged to look at the School's full range of programmes and consider possible areas of synergy and cross-disciplinary co-operation in their teaching.
The position is based at Massey University's Manawatu campus in Palmerston North. The level of appointment will depend on qualifications and experience. It is anticipated that the selected candidate will take up the appointment in January 2018.
The appointee will have a completed PhD at the time of application.
