Applications are invited for a Lectureship in Modern European History (from 1789 onwards) in the School of History to start in September 2015. We welcome applications from historians interested in any aspect of European history, although we do not expect to make an appointment in areas which duplicate the interests of current members of staff. We would particularly welcome applications from those working in Russian history. You will cover undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in European history, in the period since 1789. You will be able to teach at all levels of the undergraduate programme, and will be able to contribute to the MA programmes as well as to supervise research students. You will contribute to the administration and management of the School’s activities, and also develop the place of European history within the research culture of the School.
You will have a PhD in European history and relevant teaching experience. Your recent and immediately forthcoming publications will indicate an ability to make a distinctive contribution to research activity in this subject area in the years to come, and you will be expected to produce a significant range of publications that will qualify you for inclusion in the next REF. You will be given every encouragement to develop your subject within the research and teaching environment of the School, subject to the requirements of the post.
