    In the 2020 Times Higher Education World University Rankings, ACU has risen to the 251-300 band, skipping the 301-350 band entirely and holding its place in the top 2 per cent of universities in the world. ACU sits in the 201-250 band for Arts and Humanities. In 2020, ACU also appeared in the CWTS Leiden Ranking for the first time and was the leading Australian university in the Humanities and Social Sciences when ranked both by the proportion of papers in the top 5% most frequently cited (a scientific quality measure) and by the proportion of papers demonstrating interinstitutional collaborative publication.

    Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in English Literature. Successful candidates will have a demonstrated record of conducting outstanding research in English Literature appropriate to the level for which they are applying.

    Explanation note: The Level E positions are continuing. Continuing, in the Australian context, means there is no end date and would normally continue until such time as the staff member resigns or retires.
