The School of Social and Political Sciences are seeking to appoint a Senior Lecturer with expertise in British or South Asian social history, preferably with a focus on family, gender, migration and/or socio-economic inequalities. You will join a thriving scholarly community in the Economic and Social History subject area where you will take a senior leadership role in internationally recognised research to enhance the role of history in understanding society; in working with colleagues decolonising the curriculum and diversifying undergraduate teaching within the subject area; and in developing postgraduate teaching relating to history and society in partnership with colleagues.

You will be expected to seek external research funding and engage in research led teaching. You will also be expected to engage actively in relationships with external stakeholders that advance knowledge exchange, public understanding and outreach, particularly relating to the key thematic priorities of the School around social justice, the empowerment of young people and disadvantaged communities, and recognising and responding to historical legacies in how we, in the University and wider community, work and study.

The successful candidate will significantly contribute to the growth and development of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, particularly in social history, and enhance student experience by engaging with best practice in learning and teaching, including developing and supporting inclusivity and utilising and embedding technology in teaching. We especially encourage applications from women, people with disabilities, and ethnic minority candidates, as these groups are underrepresented in the School.

We welcome applications from candidates with a Scottish Credit and Qualification Framework level 12 [PhD] or equivalent in Economic and Social History, History or a related discipline and an extensive and established reputation in research and significant teaching experience within the discipline or subject area.

This position is open ended and full time.
