Fixed Term (16 September 2019-12 June 2020), Full time

The School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures at Royal Holloway University of London seeks to appoint a Full time Teaching Fellow to join our French and Comparative Literature team. 

The successful applicant will ideally have or be near to completing a PhD in French Studies, and have some relevant teaching experience in French culture and/or language. A high level of competence in French language is essential for this role. Expertise in modern French literature and culture is desirable. Many of our French courses are open to students of Comparative Literature and Culture, so comparative interests would be very welcome.

The Fellow will deliver 5 hours of undergraduate courses covering modern French and Comparative literature alongside 2 hours of French language teaching. The courses in question are all well established and a full online module structure, including reading lists, set readings, assignment topics and pre-prepared presentations, is available for each via our online learning platform Moodle. There may be some scope for shaping course content according to preferences and areas of expertise of the appointed Fellow. Further teaching duties may be assigned as necessary.

In addition to teaching and examining duties the Fellow will be expected to take on administrative duties in proportion with the role, with appropriate support from the Programme Director and experienced colleagues.

Please note that it will not be possible for the College to issue a Certificate of Sponsorship for successful candidates as this role does not fall into one of the standard occupational codes deemed eligible for sponsorship by UK Visas and Immigration and the pro-rata salary will not meet the minimum threshold set by UK Visas and Immigration. Successful candidates will therefore need to be eligible to work in the UK or have limited leave to remain in the UK and associated right to work for the duration of their employment with the College, in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006.
