Lecturer in 20th Century Political Thought

Queen Mary University of London - School of History

The School seeks to appoint a Lecturer in the history of political thought, specialising in the ‘long’ twentieth century. This appointment will join the international research cluster formed by the Centre for the Study of the History of Political Thought, a cross-faculty collaborative venture based in the School of History.

The aim of the new appointment is to build on this strength by extending the cluster’s range of research and teaching. Currently, the historians of political thought in the School cover the early modern period (Bourke and Skinner), extending from the Renaissance to the eighteenth century, as well as the nineteenth and twentieth centuries (Siegelberg, Isabella, Stedman Jones and Varouxakis). By appointing in the twentieth century, the research cluster aims to acquire expertise in the field of political ideas since 1890.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach in the history of political thought and intellectual history more generally, but to be able to supervise in the twentieth century at Masters and PhD level. Active participation in the activities of the Centre for the Study of the History of Political Thought will be expected.

The post is full time and permanent starting from 1st September 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter. Starting salary will be £40,182 – £42,431 per annum inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.

Informal enquiries should be addressed to Professor Richard Bourke at r.bourke@qmul.ac.uk

Presentations will be held on Wednesday 1 February and interviews on Thursday 2 February 2017.
