Lectureship in Nineteenth-Century British History, School of History, Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures
Are you someone with proven abilities to carry out teaching and research in Nineteenth-Century British History? Do you have an excellent research record and potential for establishing an international reputation? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University?
The School of History at the University of Leeds brings together a dynamic group of scholars working on British History across a range of time periods. This breadth of expertise feeds into a diverse undergraduate curriculum, as well as thriving MA and PhD programmes. We engage actively with local communities, and with partners at institutions around the world. We have particular strengths in family, gender, industrial, medical, and political history, as well as in Britain’s colonial history and global connections. The School houses Northern History, one of the most established and prestigious regional history journals in the world, and in the top 100 peer-reviewed journals in the discipline. We are looking to appoint someone who enhances our existing research strengths and teaching interests as we diversify our curricula, and who will foster a culture of collaboration with local and regional institutions and heritage organisations.
As Lecturer, you will carry out research, teaching and management within the School, Faculty and University, in an area of nineteenth-century British history. You will contribute to the management team of the journal Northern History. You will develop partnerships and collaborations with local and regional institutions and organisations.
You will be able to teach at all levels of the undergraduate programme. You will take the lead in developing new and innovative teaching relating to your research expertise, which may include through the development of your own portfolio of modules and contributions to existing team-taught courses and programmes. You will contribute to relevant MA programmes, which may include the MA in Modern History and/or the MA in Social and Cultural History. You will supervise research students. You will have a PhD or equivalent relevant experience in History or a cognate discipline, and relevant teaching experience.
We welcome applications from candidates working on local, regional and national histories of nineteenth-century Britain, including those working on cultural, economic, political, and social histories; those working on the histories of political activism, environmentalism, and/or humanitarianism; and those with specialist interests in histories of class, disability, gender, race, religion, or sexuality.
