The result of the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise confirms Exeter's position as one of the UK's leading research-intensive universities. Almost 90% of our research is at internationally recognised levels and every single subject submitted included world-leading (4*) research. When adjusted for the 95% of staff submitted, Exeter ranks among the top 15 in the UK for research out of 159 higher education institutions. The Times Higher Education described Exeter as 'a rising star among research-intensive institutions'.
The post of Lecturer in Chinese History, post-1500CE will contribute to extending the research profile of international/global/imperial history at Exeter, particularly in areas related or complementary to the cultural, political, economic and/or international history of China, and which locate China within the context of regional and global transformations, economic development or global trade.
