The Department of History is looking to appoint an Assistant Professor with specialist knowledge in the history of Late Medieval/Early Modern Middle East and/or Central Asia. You will have a PhD in history or relevant subject area, with research expertise on social and political networks across the region and related expertise in material culture. Your research interests will be interdisciplinary in nature and may also include a focus on museums and collecting, and public history more broadly. You will deliver teaching across a broad subject area of interest to students in the Departments of both History and Classics & Archaeology.
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. So 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, and pride ourselves on our positive community. Diversity is vital to our success and fundamental to our values. We want to raise our performance in producing world-class history for a diverse audience of students and scholars. We are, therefore, 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 and postgraduates in history and make a full contribution to the Department’s research profile and culture. You will be keen to pursue opportunities for impact, public engagement, and interdisciplinarity. You will contribute to administration – in particular, by championing and promoting Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion initiatives.
Shortlisting is anonymous: we cannot see any personal data or the 'Additional Information' section in your application until shortlisting is completed. Shortlisting is by criteria-based questions, rather than a CV or letter.
