The Department of Modern Languages at the University of Birmingham is seeking to make an appointment at Lecturer level. This post is part of a significant programme of investment in the Department of Modern Languages. The appointment will both reinforce and expand existing research and education strengths, following the recent appointment of a number of chairs and lectureships. The Lecturer will contribute to the Department's renewed vision for the future of Modern Languages as it is studied and researched in the University.

The successful candidate will be an excellent researcher, holding or close to completing a PhD or equivalent qualifications and with ambitious future agendas for research, impact, and external funding bids that complement and expand current activity in the Department. The appointee will be an excellent teacher, and will contribute at all degree programme levels, including core and specialist modules and Spanish language teaching.

The Department welcomes applications from specialists in any relevant time period or geographical area. The Department will give consideration both to applicants who specialize solely in Spanish, and to those who research and teach Spanish alongside one or more other language areas, providing that Spanish is a major part of their work.
