For those readers on the job market this year, the School of History of University of Leeds has recently announced a Lecturership in International History after 1945 beginning this September. The position is especially advertised for specialists on the foreign relations of the United States, but all are encouraged to apply. Read on:
Applications are invited for a Lectureship in International History, post-1945, in the School of History to start in September 2016. We welcome applications from historians interested in any aspect of International history (broadly defined), though expect to appoint someone who will complement our existing research strengths and teaching interests; preference might be given to applicants with a specialism in U.S. foreign relations.
You will cover undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in international history, in the period since 1945. You will be able to teach at all levels of the undergraduate programme, which includes a specialist single-honours programme in International History and Politics, and will be able to contribute to relevant MA programmes (including the MA in Modern History and the MA in War and Strategy) as appropriate, and supervise research students. You will contribute to the administration and management of the School’s activities, and also develop the place of International history within the research culture of the School.
You will have a PhD in History or a cognate discipline and relevant teaching experience. Your recent and immediately forthcoming publications will indicate an ability to make a distinctive contribution to research activity in this subject area in the years to come, and you will be expected to produce a significant range of publications that will qualify you for inclusion in the next REF. You will be given every encouragement to develop your subject within the research and teaching environment of the School, subject to the requirements of the post.
If this sounds of interest, then submit your application via this link no later than February 2, 2016. Questions about the position may be directed to Dr Simon Hall, Senior Lecturer in American History and the Dean of the School of History.
