Durham University - Department of History

Closing Date: 31 August 2017 (Midday)

This post is Full Time, Fixed Term for 12 Months. Ideally the successful candidate will be able to commence prior to, or on 1 October 2017.

The Department of History at Durham University invites applications from outstanding candidates for the post of an assistant professor in early modern social history (broadly defined).

Durham University History Department is one of the leading centres in the UK for the study of History, consistently ranked within the top three departments in the country by the Complete University Guide, the Times and Sunday Times, and the Guardian University Guide . We place research at the very heart of our varied undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, inducting our students into a community of historians from the outset.

Our research expertise and teaching provision extends from the early Middle Ages to the present day, and we are home to scholars of Europe (including the British Isles), Africa, the Far East, and the United States of America and of social, cultural, political, economic, religious, and gender history. We believe that this chronological range and breadth opens up possibilities of trans-national, trans-historical and comparative work that tends to be the hallmark of ground-breaking research in our discipline.

As a group of researchers, we are alive to the fact that historical questions constantly evolve, and we are committed to developing the intra-and inter-disciplinary breadth to respond to, initiate and shape the discipline and scholarship more broadly defined. This brings us together as historians and makes Durham an exciting place to work, research and study.
