2 year fixed term.  Full time. Based in central Oxford

£32,817 - £40,322 per annum


We are looking for a Departmental Lecturer in Buddhist Studies. The role is a fixed term position for a period of two years from 1 September 2020 to 31 August 2022, to cover a temporary vacancy caused by the untimely death of Professor Stefano Zacchetti. The Buddhist Studies programme in Oxford is supported by staff members in several departments and Faculties, but is centred in Oriental Studies. It supports regular research seminars and postgraduate research, as well as a two-year taught course, the M.Phil. in Buddhist Studies.

The primary teaching responsibilities of the role include providing instruction for students on the M.Phil. in Buddhist Studies course, which entails instruction in both the study of Buddhist texts and the study of aspects of Buddhist religion, thought, and practice. The latter instruction involves lectures and tutorials for the Introduction to Buddhism component of the first year of the course and tutorials for the Approaches to Buddhism class in the second year. There is likely to be around 8-10 hours of direct teaching per week during term.
