As a world-leading research-intensive University, we are here to address tomorrow’s greatest challenges. Between now and 2030 we will do that with a values-led approach to teaching, research, and innovation, and through the strength of our relationships, both locally and globally. Edinburgh is a truly global university and we have always had a commitment to diversity and a community in which students feel valued and welcome.

The School of History, Classics and Archaeology (HCA) is one of the great world centres for the study of the human past.  We are a diverse community comprising the three subject areas of History, Classics and Archaeology:  each of these is home to a very wide range of scholars, with research and teaching interests embracing many different periods, areas and themes.  

Across these three subject areas there are currently over 170 staff, 1700 undergraduate and 600 graduate students.  Learning and teaching are central aspects of our community and its purpose; and we work hard to develop our curricula, and to create effective and attractive learning environments for our students. The School of HCA is recognised for its world-class research. In the last Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), History ranked 3rd in the UK, Classics ranked 5th and half of the Archaeology staff were assessed as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally-excellent’.

The School shares the commitment of the wider university to ensuring equality, diversity and inclusion in all of its work.  We recently received an Athena Swan silver award in recognition of our commitment to advance gender equality and we also actively seek to address all other inequalities in the university workplace. 

We are seeking to appoint an individual with an internationally excellent track record of research who brings an inclusive, collaborative approach and can evidence the ability to provide academic and management leadership across the School.

We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion, and applicants from minority groups are particularly welcomed.

The University of Edinburgh is willing to consider flexible working or job share arrangements for this appointment.
