The Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages, in association with Trinity College, is seeking to appoint a Departmental Lecturer in 17th century French from 1st September 2012 until 31st August 2022.
The post will involve advanced teaching and independent academic research in French
The Departmental Lecturer in 17th Century French will contribute to the teaching of early modern and especially seventeenth-century French within the Sub-Faculty of French by offering 16 hours of lectures or seminars on the seventeenth century over the course of the year. The successful candidate will also be responsible for providing an average of 8 contact hours a week of undergraduate tuition in French language and literature at Trinity College.
The candidate will be expected to give tutorials (small-group teaching, typically of 2-3 students), seminars, and language classes to first-, second- and fourth-year undergraduates. The undergraduate literature teaching involves tutorials and seminars on the set texts for the first-year examinations (Prelims papers III and IV); for the second years and finalists, it involves teaching on a range of topics within the period 1530-1800 (FHS paper VII), on some of the authors prescribed for paper X for the second-years and finalists, and potentially supervising extended essays and 'bridge' essays for students working between history and literature. There are also opportunities for teaching early modern material (e.g. accounts of the early Americas, Huguenot memoirs) to final year students on FHS paper XII 'Travel, Exile, Migration,' if this suits the candidate's interests, and for the teaching and supervision of MSt students. The undergraduate language teaching involves translation into English for second years and finalists, and/or work on the essay in French (FHS paper 1) for second years and finalists.
Applicants must possess: exceptional fluency in French and English and the ability to teach undergraduate (and graduate) students across a range of topics in French early modern literature and culture at the highest level in the medium of English, whether through lectures, seminars or tutorials; a good undergraduate degree, normally in French; a Ph.D or D.Phil in French in the field of early modern French literature and culture which must have been submitted by start of the post.
