Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent

The role

You will be based in the Department of History, a diverse and thriving community of over 65 staff and 1000 undergraduate students, which is consistently rated among the Top 10 History Departments in the UK.

You will be expected to contribute to delivering research of the highest international quality, drive innovative research and education at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and expand interdisciplinary collaboration. We are keen to receive applications from candidates with research expertise in any aspect of modern British and/or Irish (post c.1900). This includes innovative areas of disciplinary and interdisciplinary research expertise that consolidates and extends our existing strengths connecting British history with wider global histories. These include the legacies of colonialism, Transatlantic history, migration, violence, and conflict. Preference will be given for candidates with demonstrable capability to deliver teaching within a Liberal Arts programme. We particularly welcome applications from candidates whose research engages with questions of gender and sexuality, disability, race and/or ethnicity, and adopts decolonizing approaches to dominant paradigms in the history of twentieth- and twenty-first century Britain.  The College also welcomes applications from candidates with experience or interests in digital humanities.

About you

You will have:

  • A relevant PhD or PhD viva pass in hand (with a maximum of minor corrections at the time of interview), in History or closely related discipline
  • An emerging track record of independent, internationally-recognised research in a relevant field of research
  • A strong record in attracting funding for research, or demonstrate potential to attract such funding
  • An active approach to inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary research;
  • Enthusiasm for delivering high quality undergraduate programmes and developing Liberal Arts as well as new postgraduate initiatives (e.g. taught postgraduate programmes and research student recruitment)
  • Potential for strong connections and funded projects with business and community partners
  • Potential for involvement in projects which develop impact

Please ensure you read the Job Description for full details of this role.

  • Support teams that understand the University wide research and teaching goals and partner with our academics accordingly
  • An Innovation, Impact and Business directorate that works closely with our academics providing specialist support for external engagement and development
  • Our Exeter Academic initiative supporting high performing academics to achieve their potential and develop their career
