  • Role Description

    The Department of Language & Linguistic Science is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in French in the UG programme from 1 September 2021. The post is full-time and fixed-term to cover for a maternity absence.

    Our French provision is delivered through our BA degree programmes in language, linguistics, and combined degrees (with History) and through Languages for All, which provides general language modules in 14 languages (from beginner level to final-year level). You will join our department to contribute across the spectrum of our teaching of language and culture.


    You will be able to demonstrate significant experience of teaching and administration in a higher-education setting, with the ability to teach across all levels of the subject, and to deliver content-based modules in the target language.

    Duties will include teaching and convening modules at undergraduate level (on the UG degree programme and in the Languages for All programme). You will also be expected to contribute to the life of the Department by undertaking appropriate administrative and pastoral duties.

    You will be expected to teach on the following modules: France and Second World War (stage H), French Society on Screen (stages I and H), The Francophone World (stage I), Ab initio French Language and Society (stage C), and one LFA module.

    The starting date is 1 September 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.

    Skills, Experience & Qualification needed
  • You will hold a Postgraduate degree qualification in French Studies or in a closely related area, together with the ability to deliver language teaching and assessment at undergraduate level. The ability to work constructively and flexibly with colleagues, and good organisational and communication skills are also essential.

  • The successful applicant would ideally have experience in a variety of educational environments including online/distance learning.We will add the University's Equality and Diversity statement to all advertisements:
