Offre d’emploi – Assistant Professor in Viking Studies (Research and Teaching)

Closes: 10th May 2023

Do you have research and teaching specialisations in Old Norse language and literature, and interdisciplinary Viking Studies?  We are looking to appoint a full time Assistant Professor in Viking Studies to work in our team in the School of English at the University of Nottingham. You would join our team on a permanent research and teaching contract available from 1 September 2023.

We recognise that what helps us succeed are the different ideas and experiences of colleagues across our School, who come from different cultures and backgrounds. We believe that diverse academic and research teams provide the best opportunities to be innovative and forward-thinking. We are therefore seeking applications from candidates whose background, experience and identity broadens and enhances the diversity of our team and we would particularly welcome applications from scholars from different heritages and cultures and non-traditional backgrounds.

We strongly endorse Athena SWAN principles, and we have commitment at all levels of our organisation to address gender inequality. It is our mission to ensure equal opportunities, best working practices and fair policies for all.

You will be specialised in an area of interdisciplinary Old Norse and Viking Studies, with research expertise in Old Norse language and literature, and, for example, runology, onomastics, or health humanities.  

You will be able to undertake teaching in the areas of Old Norse language and literature and contribute more widely to our teaching, research and knowledge exchange activities in Medieval Studies. We are committed to considering a broad range of EDI issues in relation to our teaching and research activities, and welcome applications from those who can demonstrate familiarity with those issues within the broader context of Viking and Medieval Studies.   

You will have a PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant area of Viking Studies and an ability to teach at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. You will also have related research interests, a track record of publishing or other ways of disseminating your research, and evidence of your ability to contribute to our School’s future REF or other research assessment exercises.

This post is available on a permanent basis. Hours of work are full time (36.25 hours). Job share arrangements may be considered.

The interview process will include a teaching presentation to 10-12 English staff and a formal interview with a panel of School of English staff including colleagues from our Medieval Language and Literature section.
