University post for top novelist

Have your say

SHEFFIELD University is set to make a novel appointment - by recruiting a writer in residence specialising in fiction.

The successful candidate will teach both undergraduates and post-graduates in the School of English Literature, Language and Linguistics.

The department is looking for an established novelist with a strong record of published works and will also be expected to carry out international-quality research.

The chosen writer will also help supervise doctorate students and to help run the masters course in creative writing - and so must have proven teaching ability and experience of course leadership.
