Ausgeschriebene Professuren / Open Faculty Positions

Professur für Literaturen in englischer Sprache des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts / Professorship in Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Literatures in English

The University of Zurich invites applications for a Professorship in Nineteenth- and Twentieth-Century Literatures in English. The position should be filled by August 1, 2018.

The candidate’s research and teaching will place a theoretical focus on literatures in English from the nineteenth through to the twenty-first century in their entire theoretical and methodological range. Special emphasis will be placed on questions of intermediality. A further area of research specialization should be the transatlantic ‹long 20th century›. The successful candidate will bring innovative research contributions to the field of English and American Studies and is expected to help develop joint research projects and teaching collaborations with other members of the English Department, with researchers in related fields, as well as with national and international institutions of higher learning.

Candidates are expected to have completed their Habilitation or equivalent qualifications. As administrative work is conducted in German at the University of Zurich, non-German speaking candidates are expected to acquire a working knowledge of German within the first three years of appointment. In order to increase the number of women in leading academic positions, we encourage women to apply.

The closing date is September 10, 2016. For more information please contact Prof. Dr. Elisabeth Bronfen (
