Associate Professorship in History: Britain and the World since 1700

University of Oxford - Somerville College in association with the Faculty of History

Somerville College and the Faculty of History propose to appoint an Associate Professor and Tutorial Fellow from 1 September 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The appointment will be a permanent post (after initial probation) and will be on a salary scale of £46,336 - £62,219 p.a., with additional benefits of at least £8,484; those appointed below the top of this range will receive annual increments until they reach the top point.

The main duties of the postholder will be to engage in research at an internationally competitive level and teach at all levels in a field within ‘Britain and the World since 1700’. Applicants should have relevant expertise in one of the following fields:

  1. Britain’s relations with other parts of the non-European world, especially South Asia or the Caribbean (for instance, in the latter case, the slave trade).
  2. The impact of the non-European world on Britain, for instance through migration, the development of a multi-cultural society, or the history of Black and Asian populations in modern British society.

Applicants should note that the appointment involves two separate contracts, one with the college and one with the University, and the postholder will be expected to undertake duties (as outlined in the further particulars) for both the college and the Faculty of History.

Candidates should normally have received the degree of PhD or DPhil by 1 September 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter. The faculty and colleges will also be happy to consider applications from senior faculty staff at other universities.

Further particulars and an application form are available from the following website:

The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday (UK time) on 29 January 2018.
