Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Modern British History

University of Lincoln - College of Arts – School of History and Heritage

The University of Lincoln is an ambitious and fast-growing academic community which has been awarded a TEF gold rating.  Although established within the last twenty years, it already ranks among the Top 50 Universities in the UK (49th in Complete University Guide 2017), and has set itself the goal of a position in the Top 40 by the end of the decade. Lincoln’s History programme has already achieved that goal, and was ranked 17th by the Guardian (2018).

The School of History and Heritage forms part of the College of Arts and is located in the AAD Building at the University’s main Brayford campus beside a natural pool in the River Witham. The view is dominated by Lincoln’s magnificent Cathedral.

An opportunity now exists for an historian of modern Britain to join the School.  Our ideal candidate will have an emerging or established track record of publications of a calibre to merit inclusion in the next REF exercise, a developing record of research grant applications. He or she will be an outstanding HE teacher or will demonstrate the potential to become one.

The successful candidate will join a thriving, friendly School with a strong collaborative research culture, with regular seminars and ongoing support for research activity, including funding for research and conference activities and a research leave scheme. In the 2014 REF, History performed well with 35% of history outputs rated 4*. We take teaching and student experience very seriously, and in NSS 2016 and again in 2017 the History programme was rated in the top ten nationally for overall satisfaction.

Lincoln is a wonderful city for scholars of all periods. It is home to Britain’s finest cathedral and a Norman castle. There are excellent local museums and galleries. The Lincolnshire Archives are a rich resource for modernists, and the Media Archive for Central England (MACE) is housed on campus. The School offers a friendly and welcoming working environment and a strong collaborative research culture, with regular seminars and ongoing support for research activity, including funding for research and conference activities and a research leave scheme.

This is a full-time (1.0FTE) permanent position offering employment from January 2018. The successful candidate will offer modules for our History programme (BA and MA), and may contribute to new BA programmes in the School. Arriving in the middle of the academic year, he or she will contribute to established modules in modern History at all levels during 2017-18, and will develop new modules for delivery in 2018-19.
