Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) is a distinctive, unique institution, rooted in the Liverpool City Region and with a global presence. Our students and staff, past, present, and future, are the beating heart of our city and can be found in every corner of every industry and community. We couldn’t exist anywhere else and have shaped the city in which we belong. Working with the people of Liverpool to improve lives and support communities is at the heart of why we were founded and why we exist today.

Sitting within the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, our History department is a well-established subject with a strong research profile and a score of 93% for ‘teaching on my course’ in the 2023 National Student Survey. It is currently comprised of sixteen members of staff that teach a broad range of modules from the eighteenth century onwards. This includes the United Kingdom, Europe, Russia, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. More specific modules like nineteenth century Irish America, the history of US foreign relations, and nineteenth/twentieth century Latin American history, are also covered. Details of our current research interests can be seen at History Research Group.

We are now seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Modern American History (1735 – 1991) on a full-time basis, for a fixed term of up to 12 months. You will teach a number of modules related to Modern American History, focusing on the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. There would be an additional expectation around the delivery of wider foundation, undergraduate, and postgraduate teaching as required. You should hold a PhD in a related discipline and have experience teaching at undergraduate level. The department would welcome proposals from the BAME academic community, who have historically been under-represented in the profession.

In return, we offer an excellent benefits package including generous annual leave entitlement, pension scheme, induction, and development support as well as family-friendly policies.

This is an exciting time to join the university as we deliver the LJMU Strategy 2030 and its vision of LJMU as an inclusive civic university transforming lives and futures, by placing students at the heart of everything we do.

If you feel that this is the role you have been looking for and your skills and experience can make a real difference at LJMU, we look forward to hearing from you.

Informal enquires may be made to the Subject Leader for History, Dr David Clampin at D.J.Clampin@ljmu.ac.uk.

LJMU is an equal opportunities employer and welcome applicants from all background and communities irrespective of age, transgender status, disability, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity and religion or belief. All our appointments are made on merit.
