You will be expected to contribute to teaching and administration within the Department, in at least two of the following areas: (i) language teaching (translation from German into English); (ii) German literature from 1700 to 1832 (especially Goethe); (iii) German thought from the eighteenth to the twentieth century. Depending on your areas of expertise, you will be asked to undertake language teaching as necessary, to give lectures in the following undergraduate courses: GE 5: Modern German culture (1), 1750 - 1890 and GE8: German literature, thought, and history from 1700 to 1815 (including Goethe's works to 1832), to act as course adviser for one or both of these papers, to supervise MPhil work in relevant fields, and to assist in Tripos examinations. You may also be expected to teach the full range of texts set for the first-year literature paper (GE3), if you choose to join a College, and to offer specialist language teaching for second and final-year students.
You will be required to hold a PhD and to specialize in one of the areas in which you will be lecturing. You will have a strong profile, both in terms of research and publications, and the promise of making an outstanding contribution to the Department of German and Dutch. You will have native or excellent non-native command of German and English.

You are invited to apply by completing form CHRIS 6, and also submitting a cover letter, a detailed curriculum vitae including a list of publications, a statement on your research interests and the names and addresses of two referees who are familiar with your work in the relevant field.

All of the application material should be sent by the closing date of 21 July 2010 either by post to the Secretary to the Appointments Committee, Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge CB3 9DA OR by e-mail: You are requested to ask your referees to write directly 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 which has been published, to draw the Committee's attention to items of special relevance to your application. Shortlisted candidates for the post will be notified in mid July and will also be asked to give a short presentation of 20 minutes to a mixed group of graduate students and members of the Department prior to the interview itself.

The appointment is subject to a satisfactory completion of a probationary period of one year.
