Job Description

To promote a flexible workforce, the University will consider applications from individuals seeking full time, part time, job share, or term time only working arrangements.


The Department of Modern Languages at Aberystwyth is looking to appoint a Lecturer in French (Teaching and Research), to contribute to core teaching in French Studies.  You will teach a combination of literary/cultural modules and language modules within the undergraduate provision of the Department. You will have an excellent command of  written and spoken French and English and an established research trajectory which will enable you to contribute to the University’s REF submission for Modern Languages. 


You will have appropriate experience of teaching French language as well as a range of non-language courses (e.g. current affairs, literature, linguistics, cultural studies, film studies), at university level. The role will also include administration and student welfare responsibilities as well as participation in a range of student recruitment activity.


Applications are invited in any area of French Studies post 1900 although preference may be given to candidates specialising in fields other than the literature of metropolitan France.
