We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer (grade 8) in European History since 1800.

We wish to recruit an excellent candidate with a strong research profile and international perspective in their research. We recognise that European History is a broad field, but are particularly interested in hearing from scholars who work on the impact of war and conflict on European history or European international history in the period from around 1800 to 1945, including scholars who use approaches related to social, cultural and gender history.

European History is a key area of research and teaching within the Division. The post relates directly to the University’s strategic research themes of ‘Global Security and Resilience’ and the research programme on 'Human Security, Conflict and Co-Operation' as well as the Centre for Policy, Conflict and Co-Operation Research. Members of our current History team are participants in collaborative and interdisciplinary funded research projects with partners in the UK, the EU and internationally. We aim to undertake research that makes a difference in society, addressing national and global challenges. Research impact is integral to what we do, working in partnership with local and national government.

Description of Duties

The successful candidate would offer research-led teaching at undergraduate level and also be able to teach on and co-ordinate one of our nineteenth- and twentieth-century European history survey courses.

As well as making a significant contribution to our undergraduate programme, the appointee would be expected to pursue an ambitious programme of research appropriate to the stage of their career, including research outputs and funding applications, also in the context of the University’s internationalisation agenda; undertake postgraduate research supervision relevant to their expertise; to contribute to the recruitment of Masters and PhD students; and to undertake other teaching and administrative duties as prescribed by the Head of Division, such as contributing to other team-taught teaching within the History subject group.
