Full Time, Fixed Term - Researcher

We invite applications from high-quality early career researchers in History, preferably with a research specialism in Social and Cultural History from c. 1750. 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.

This is an exciting opportunity for anyone with a PhD, and a substantial period of post-doctoral (or equivalent) research experience. It's also a fantastic chance to build and develop your already strong publications track record. 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.

The Research Fellow will be responsible for:

  • Carrying out original research related to one of the strategic themes identified by the School
  • Publishing REF returnable articles in internationally recognised academic journals and write/contribute to books and monographs
  • Assisting staff in the School with the development of grant proposals, networking and dissemination activities, and outputs for publication
  • Supporting other staff in the School working on the same strategic research theme as required.

The Research Fellow should have:

  • Undergraduate degree and a PhD in a closely- relevant field
  • A substantial period of research experience in a relevant area and an excellent publication track record with articles in high quality peer-reviewed journals and a monograph either already completed or contracted and to be published in the near future

This is a full time position for 36 months.
