Do you have teaching specialisation in creative writing?  We are looking to appoint a Teaching Associate in Creative Writing to work in our team in the School of English at the University of Nottingham.  You would join us on a fixed-term, part time teaching contract for 18 hours per week from 1st January to 30th June 2024. 

We recognise that what helps us succeed is the different ideas and experiences of colleagues across our School, who come from a mix of cultures and backgrounds. Together, we are welcoming, inspiring and supportive of everyone. We believe in diverse academic and research teams that will provide the best opportunities to be innovative and forward thinking. We are therefore seeking applications from candidates whose background, experience and identity broadens and enhances the diversity of our existing team and would particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic scholars. We are currently working to decolonise our teaching curriculum and understand that having a mix of opinions, broad perspectives, lived experiences and different ways of solving problems enhances our day-to-day work and enriches our academic community. We strongly endorse Athena SWAN principles, and we have commitment at all levels of our organisation to address gender inequality. It is our mission to ensure equal opportunities, best working practices and fair policies for all.

You will be required to teach creative writing and have a specialism in writing fiction.  You will contribute to a second-year module, Fiction: Forms and Conventions; and a postgraduate module, Learning to Publish. You might also be asked to contribute to other teaching in creative writing as appropriate within the workload allocation of the role.

You will have a PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant area of creative writing as well as have evidence of your ability to teach at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, covering the above areas. Experience of distance learning teaching is desirable. 

Mentoring towards further career progression will be offered throughout the period of the post.
