Tipo de contrato:
Murray Edwards College invites applications for a fixed-term (three years) College Lectureship in Spanish from 1 September 2020. This post will be in association with Peterhouse. The person appointed will be elected to an Official Fellowship of Murray Edwards College for this period.
The post holder will be expected to supervise for 180 hours per academic year; 120 hours for Murray Edwards College and 60 hours for Peterhouse. In addition, they will participate in the admissions process and Direction of Studies at both Colleges.
The person appointed will be expected to teach (‘supervise’) undergraduates for nine hours per week for the twenty teaching weeks of the year, and will direct studies for students taking Spanish in both Colleges (for which there is separate remuneration). College supervision involves setting and marking work which is then discussed in meetings with small groups of students. Directors of Studies are formally responsible for advising students on the course and for reviewing their progress with them (particularly through individual meetings at the beginning and end of each term) and for finding appropriate supervisors for each course. They also play a major role in selecting students from amongst those applying for places: participation in interviews in December and January each year, and in the cross-College moderation meetings (the Winter and Summer pools) is essential. It is also hoped that the successful applicant will play a part in promoting and supporting Spanish within the Colleges and more broadly, for example through outreach activities.
We will welcome applications from male or female applicants with a Ph.D. in Spanish and an excellent track record in research and publication. Given the nature of the post, the successful candidate will also have experience of teaching at undergraduate level at Cambridge or at another University; and/or have an interest in developing high-quality teaching. Experience of supervision of topicsthat form part of the Spanish Tripos would be a distinct advantage.
Application letters including a curriculum vitae and statement outlining interest and plans for the position should reach the College Administrator (Ms Sarah Greaves – firstname.lastname@example.org) by noon on Friday 3 January 2020; candidates should also arrange for three confidential references to reach the College Administrator by the same date.
Informal enquiries can be made to the Senior Tutor (Dr Kate Peters – email@example.com).
