About the role
This is an exciting opportunity to join the thriving Modern History community in the Faculty, and to gain teaching experience at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Although this is primarily a teaching role, you will also conduct independent research, contribute to undergraduate admissions, and share tutorial responsibility for all Modern History undergraduates at St Hilda’s, together with other duties such as setting and marking college exams (collections) at the start of each term, and report-writing at the end of each term, and you will be expected to act as Personal Tutor to some of the students reading for the joint schools degrees which include History. The post is intended to cover teaching and administrative duties whilst Professor Selina Todd is on leave.
You will have research and teaching interests in Modern history, 19th and 20th century Britain and Europe, including the experience and representation of working-class people and women in Britain since the 19th century. You will be able to inspire and enthuse students and draw on your own research to inform and augment your teaching.
The post is fixed term until 30th September 2024 (limited by external funding) and is tenable from 1st October 2023.
You will hold a completed doctorate in a relevant field, or evidence that a doctorate is close to completion and experience of teaching Modern History including 19th and 20th century Britain and Europe. You will also have sufficient depth and breadth of knowledge in Modern History to develop course materials and research proposals. You will demonstrate an ability and willingness to teach and supervise for both the Faculty of History and St Hilda’s College, across the range of papers listed in the job description.
You will be able to inspire and enthuse students and draw on your own research to inform and augment your teaching.
