Assistant Professor in Modern European Cultural History (Grades 7 and 8)

Durham University

The role:

Based in one of the UK’s leading centres for the study of history, you will make an important contribution to the development of a dynamic research culture, building on the expertise of a strong group in modern European cultural history. Making use of your own outstanding knowledge and the University’s important library and archival holdings in the field, you will carry out and publish excellent and original research. Passionate about modern European cultural history post-1800, you will share your enthusiasm through exceptional research-led teaching. At Durham, you will benefit from a strong commitment to intra- and inter-disciplinary research, and from the resources of a host of specialist Research Institutes and Centres - including the Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies. You will also enjoy the advantages of a mentoring scheme to develop you as a historian, teacher and leader in the discipline and beyond.

You’ll need:

  • A good first-degree, complemented by a PhD in Modern European Cultural History or a related subject (either completed, or currently in progress).
  • The ability to produce world-class research - ideally situating your country specialism(s) in a transnational, transregional or global context - including a research plan which supports the activities of the department.
  • Proof that you have contributed to research groups and can mentor early career researchers.
  • The confidence to supervise PhD students.
  • Willingness to develop successful research project proposals, with the scope to secure funding or generate income.
  • Experience of delivering high-quality teaching across lectures and in smaller study groups, with the ability attain fellowship of the HEA.
  • Confident leadership and communication skills, with the willingness to work collaboratively as part of a team.
