This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious historian with a developing research profile evidenced through a career-level-appropriate record of publication, excellent and proven teaching skills and experience, some experience of undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum design and development, and the ability to foster and sustain collaborative partnerships with external parties.

The successful candidate will be responsible for: contributing to postgraduate teaching through the creation and delivery of modules (solo and team taught) for the MA Black British History programme; contributing to undergraduate teaching at all levels through the creation and delivery of modules (solo and team taught) for the BA History programme (and associated joint-honours history programmes that share modules);  researching and publishing in the subject area, and supporting outreach and partnerships regarding Black British history within the department, the College and beyond. This is a permanent, full-time, Teaching and Research position. 

You will join our highly motivated and expanding team of staff, who are already collectively engaged in a range of initiatives to promote the vitality of both our research and teaching, with strong and committed support from the senior management of the College. The department focuses on early modern, modern, and contemporary history, with specific strengths in political, intellectual and religious history, social and cultural history, medical history, military history, Black British history, the history of identities, and material and visual culture.

The Department of History hosts the Centre for the Study of the Balkans, the Centre of the Body (in association with Theatre and Performance) and the Centre for Queer History which runs the world’s only MA Queer History programme.
