The Centre for Scottish and Celtic Studies [CSCS] in the University of Glasgow is one of the largest centres of expertise in Scottish Studies in the world. Located in the College of Arts, it hosts a popular public seminar series throughout the year and annual lectures: it is an important element of the exciting research environment linking Archaeology, Celtic and Gaelic, Scottish History and Scottish Literature.
The Centre also administers two research grant schemes and invests in innovative knowledge exchange and impact activity. Associated with this research portfolio is a growing suite of innovative teaching and learning opportunities which have grown to achieve critical mass and sector leading status: summer schools, online programmes, blended courses, skills and training, and Massive Online Learning Courses (MOOCs). These initiatives, co-ordinated by the Centre, now demand a dedicated academic to develop further. The post holder will work closely with the Director of the Centre to consolidate and expand work in this area and develop the research strategy of the Centre and its constituent elements.
For the purposes of this post Scottish Studies includes but is not restricted to Archaeology, Celtic and Gaelic, Scottish History, Scottish Literature, and the post holder’s subject specialism must fall within a subject area in the School of Critical Studies or the School of Humanities. While located within one of the subject areas the post holder’s remit relates to the development of activities across Scottish Studies.
This post is on a full-time (35 hrs per week), open-ended basis.
