JH Plumb College Lectureship and Fellowship in History

University of Cambridge - Christ's College

Location: Cambridge
Salary: £34,304 per annum, spine point 42
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 29th October 2021
Closes: 11th January 2022

Stipendiary; 4 years fixed term

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a College Lectureship in any field of British history since 1500 or continental European history since 1800, associated with a Fellowship of Christ’s College. The major part of the funding for this post was supplied by generosity of the Glenfield Trust to mark the centenary in 2011 of Sir John Plumb’s birth.  The Trust was established in 2002 under the terms of Sir John’s will and its primary objective is to support education at Christ’s College.

The post is intended to provide a valuable development opportunity over a fixed term for an individual at the beginning of their academic career to allow them to build teaching skills, a publication record and other academic activity with a view to obtaining a university appointment in Cambridge or elsewhere. Tenable from 1st September 2022 to 31st August 2026 or for a similar period with dates to be agreed, this post is not renewable or extendable.

The successful candidate will be expected to reside in Cambridge and will be elected to a Fellowship of the College. They will be expected to undertake six hours of small- group teaching per week for the College during Full Term (equivalent to 120 hours per academic year), to act whenever required as Director of Studies in History, to engage in research and publication, and to undertake other College offices or duties appropriate to an early-career appointment if asked to do so. Candidates should normally be able to teach a wide range of topics within the general fields indicated above. The Fellow may, at their discretion, give additional College teaching (beyond 120 hours per annum) which would be remunerated at the normal hourly rates for College supervision.

The stipend is the equivalent to spine point 42 on the University’s single salary spine, currently, £34,304. The Fellow will be a member of the College’s Governing Body and will be expected to sit on some College committees. The privileges of a Fellowship include seven free meals per week, some financial support for research expenses, a study room for teaching and other academic purposes, and possibly single-occupancy residential accommodation in College. The stipend is subject to a reduction if the Fellow chooses to reside in College.

Letters of application (there are no forms) should be sent to hr-manager@christs.cam.ac.uk to arrive no later than Tuesday 11th January 2022 including a curriculum vitae with details of qualifications, publications and experience and the names and addresses of two persons who have agreed to act as academic referees.  Candidates must arrange for their referees to send a reference directly to hr-manager@christs.cam.ac.uk so that references  are received by the closing date of Tuesday 11th January 2022.  Short-listed candidates may be asked for copies of written work and may be invited for interview, expected to be held on or around Monday 31st January 2022.
