About us:

King’s History department is an internationally-recognised centre for the study of the history of the world. Our undergraduate curriculum introduces students to world history from the early medieval period to the present; it then offers students pathways to study every continent through their second and third years. Our MA provision is similarly broad, developing students’ expertise in medieval, early modern and modern world history. We are an intellectual home for scholars of every region of the world, who use approaches which range from local micro-histories to large-scale quantitative analysis. We particularly value conversation between scholars of different periods and places, with different approaches.

We are looking to recruit a colleague with expertise in any aspect of modern economic history, able to teach a range of courses in modern economic history and its methods.

You will conduct and publish high quality research in the subject. You will jointly teach a second year module in Economic History, and also a third year thematic subject on Wealth, together with an advanced, third year skills module on Methods in Economic History. You will contribute to survey modules, taking seminars of core skills modules and possibly MA teaching. You will assume pastoral and administrative responsibilities, and participate actively in the life and culture of the department. A strong research record, excellent teaching ability, outstanding interpersonal skills and a collaborative ethos are essential for the role.

We particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates as they are under-represented in the Department of History. Applications from members of groups marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the Equality Act are particularly welcome.
