We invite applications from candidates with research potential and a developing record of publications in top journals, or with leading book publishers, in the history of modern South Asia (ca 1850-2000).

They will have a clear, well developed and viable strategy for conducting and publishing future world-class research in the history of modern South Asia. They will also be expected to supervise dissertations at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and to supervise students for the PhD programme.
