[Vacancy] Lecturer in Japanese Studies

Lecturer in Japanese Studies

Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out teaching and research in Japanese Studies? Do you have an excellent research record and a potential for establishing an international reputation? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University?

As Lecturer in Japanese Studies, you will carry out research and teaching that complements our existing research strengths and teaching interests in the Japanese section of East Asian Studies. On the teaching side, you will be able to teach at all levels of our Single and Joint Honours undergraduate programmes in Japanese Studies. You will also supervise research students and contribute to the Japanese-English specialised translation strands on our MA in Applied Translation Studies (MAATS) and to other relevant MA programmes within the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies.

You will have some relevant teaching experience and a PhD in Japanese Studies, ideally with a specialism in the Religion, Anthropology or History of Japan. You will also pursue a research agenda that builds on your achievements to date and that contributes to the unit’s reputation for high quality and innovative research, and contribute to the effective management of the School, Faculty, and wider University.
