The Department of English at Manchester Metropolitan seeks to appoint a Lecturer in Publishing.

The Department hosts BA programmes in English, Creative Writing and Film and Media Studies. The Department runs highly successful MA programmes in Creative Writing and English Studies and has one of the largest communities of taught postgraduate English and Creative Writing students in the UK. In September 2020 we launched our new MA Publishing in partnership with Manchester independent publisher Comma Press. This new programme is delivered by an interdisciplinary team from the University’s English, Information and Communications, Design and Law subject groups, and strong recruitment in its first two years is supporting the creation of new posts.

The post is suitable for candidates with a Phd in a relevant area or equivalent qualifications and with experience of teaching Publishing. This opportunity will be offered on a permanent, full-time basis of 37 hours per week. The anticipated start date for the successful applicant is 1st  November 2021. For an informal discussion regarding the requirements of the role, please contact Dr Jess Edwards (j.edwards@mmu.ac.uk). 

Manchester Metropolitan University is committed to supporting the rights, responsibilities, dignity, health and wellbeing of staff and students through our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.

We promote applications from all sections of the community, irrespective of background, belief or identity, recognising the benefits that a diverse organisation can bring. We particularly encourage applications from Black and Minority Ethnic candidates, who we recognise are underrepresented in this area.

We recognise the benefits and importance of an environment that supports flexible working and are open to conversations about this throughout the application process.
