Research Associate in German Idealism

Salary: GBP 27,183 to GBP 31,513 pa
Limit of Tenure applies*

Applications are invited for the post of Research Associate in The Impact of German Idealism in the Department of German and Dutch. The vacancy arises in relation to a new research network entitled The Impact of Idealsim: The Legacy of Post-Kantian German Thought', funded by the Leverhulme Trust and the Isaac Newton Trust and directed by Professor Nicholas Boyle. The project examines the long-term impact of Post-Kantian Idealism across the humanities in Europe and America and involves a programme of international workshops and an international conference. It is expected to lead to a major publication. You will be expected to act as a Network Facilitator for the network. You will be required to hold a Ph.D. , will have demonstrable interests in one or more fields covered by the project and an excellent command of English and German, and you will be aiming to produce an independent monograph in this area (distinct from your doctoral dissertation), preferably by the end of 2012 in time for the 2013 REF. You will also be expected to contribute to the teaching within the Department, giving some lectures in undergraduate courses in German Literature, History, or Thought, supervising M.Phil work in relevant fields, and assisting in Tripos examinations.

Completed applications, including a PD18 form (available at ), a cover letter, a detailed curriculum vitae, an outline (about 1,000 words) of your proposed research in the area of German Idealism and its impact, a list of publications, and the names and addresses of two referees who are familiar with your work in the relevant field, should be sent to The Secretary of the Appointments Committee, Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge CB3 9DA [or by e-mail:] by 4 pm on the closing date. You are requested to ask your referees to write directly to The Secretary of the Appointments Committee by the same date.

You are also invited to submit up to two recent examples of your work for consideration by the Committee, or, in the case of work that has been published, to draw the Committee's attention to items of special relevance to your application. Shortlisted candidates will be asked to give a short presentation as part of the interview process.

Due to limitations of external funds, salary for this pensionable post will be in the range of GBP 27,183 to GBP 31,513. The appointment will run from 1 March 2010 for 34 months, and is subject to satisfactory completion of a probationary period of six months.
