Here’s another good job posting: our colleagues at the University of Sheffield have advertised a position for a Senior Lecturer or Reader in International History, with a starting date of this September. (For those unfamiliar with the British academic system, a Senior Lecturer or Reader position is roughly equivalent to an Associate Professor position in a North American university.)
The posting, an advertisement explains:is an ideal opportunity for a scholar with an outstanding publication record and excellent teaching ability to join one of the leading centres for historical research in the United Kingdom. You will have teaching and research strengths within the broad area of international and imperial history and you will provide leadership both in international history and in the Department as a whole. You will also be able to direct teaching and research with imagination and ambition and serve as a mentor and collaborator for junior colleagues. This will include design and delivery of teaching on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, developing the Department’s research profile through the production of high quality publications and attracting external research funding. You will also be expected to contribute to the Department’s presence within the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, the wider University and, through outreach and knowledge exchange, in Sheffield and beyond. You will have a PhD in History or a related subject area (or have equivalent experience), proven teaching and leadership ability and the capacity to carry out high quality research and disseminate research findings. The ability to communicate to a variety of audiences is also essential for this position.
The position is compensated at £48,743 to £54,841 per annum, with potential to progress to £63,552; applications are due no later than March 18th, through Sheffield’s online jobs system.
