The Department of History at the University of Nottingham is looking to appoint a Teaching Associate with specialist knowledge in early modern European and global history. You will have a PhD in history, with research expertise on the Iberian Peninsula and associated empires, viewed both from colonial and indigenous perspectives.

We want to continue to tackle the underrepresentation of marginalised groups in history – whether in staffing, curriculum, research, the public face of history or presence in the classroom. You will be able to demonstrate an ability to make a positive difference to issues of underrepresentation, through your experience, work, ethos, identity, or in some other way.

We believe in an inclusive working environment for all. We are welcoming, supportive and caring, conscious that diversity in our community is fundamental to our values and vital to our success. We are particularly keen to receive applications from people currently underrepresented in history, such as those of marginalised genders (e.g. women, non-binary, trans), people with disabling conditions, and people from Black, Asian or minority ethnic backgrounds.

You will contribute to an exceptional education for undergraduates in history and the Department’s research profile and culture. You will be keen to pursue opportunities for impact, public engagement, and interdisciplinarity. And you will contribute to the administration of the Department – in particular, by championing and promoting Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion initiatives.

Shortlisting is anonymous: we cannot see any personal data in your application until shortlisting is completed (application is by criteria-based questions, rather than a CV or letter).

About the role:

As a Teaching Associate you will be expected to:

  • design and deliver modules in history, contributing lectures and seminars within the Department's overall teaching programme
  • supervise and examine undergraduate students
  • support tutorial groups, developing their knowledge and learning skills
  • take a proactive role in the pastoral support of students, dealing with sensitive issues
  • be responsible for administrative duties
  • contribute to impact, public engagement, and interdisciplinarity
  • contribute positively and proactively to the Department’s teaching culture, especially considering issues of underrepresentation in history

This post will be offered on a permanent contract, commencing in September 2022. Hours of work are full time for 36.25 hours a week. Job share arrangements may be considered.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr Andrew Cobbing, Head of Department, email: andrew.cobbing@nottingham.ac.uk; please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
