We are particularly keen to attract applications from scholars working on issues of race, class, and gender, alongside an interest in transnational knowledge, decolonisation and intersectionality. The School of History, Philosophy and Culture is recognised for its research excellence and offers a dynamic and supportive environment for research and public engagement. Our researchers have international and world-ranking reputations and the successful candidate will thus contribute to the School's ambitious programme of research and innovation.
As a Research Fellow, it will be your role to establish and build an independent research programme with an international reputation. You will ensure projects achieve their objectives, and you will form and develop collaborations with existing and external researchers, which will see you generate work for international journals and other high-quality publications.

You'll come to us with a history of writing articles in high-quality peer-reviewed journals, and a clear ability to enhance the research culture of both department and faculty. Responsible for developing major research projects, you will also have had experience of mentoring or supervising students.
