The Department of English at the University of Iceland invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor/Lecturer in Restoration and Eighteenth-Century Literature.
The successful applicant will contribute to a survey of British literature (1603-1789) as well as to undergraduate and postgraduate elective courses on Restoration and eighteenth-century literature, the rise of the novel, literature of the Enlightenment, and also potentially classes on transatlantic, global Anglophone, Irish, and/or North American literature. The successful applicant will also supervise B.A. essays and M.A. and Ph.D. theses in English Literature. Teaching is in English and therefore near-native proficiency in English is required. Most compulsory courses are taught by distance as well as on-site, so the successful applicant must be willing and able to participate in distance teaching. The teaching load will typically fall in the range of 2-2, but this can vary based on enrollment numbers, administrative duties, and research productivity. Qualification requirements
