Some people may have seen these already, but we have two jobs currently being advertised within the Department at Liverpool (links below). The deadlines are quite tight, simply because we want people to be ‘in post’ as soon as possible.
They are both short term (6mth and 18mth respectively) which isn’t ideal in many ways, but they are one way to climb the greasy pole to a permanent academic position. I can speak from first-hand experience, as one of these posts is to replace the remainder of my ‘old’ contract before I was successful in applying for a lectureship here over the summer. If people would like to have a conversation with me about the posts, and the expectations that would be placed upon you once in post, then please get in touch.
