Chair in American History

Keele University – School of Humanities

The School of Humanities at Keele is seeking to appoint two ambitious chairs in History who will build on the strong results achieved in REF2014, when 82% of the submission was judged to be at 4* and 3* level (21% at 4*), producing a GPA of 3.03.

One Chair will be in American History with expertise in 20th-Century History being desirable.

The second Chair will be in History and the appointees will complement the research strengths of existing members of the team.

Both appointees will offer outstanding leadership in research and teaching, as well as administrative expertise acquired in the British HE system.  The successful applicants will be expected to participate fully in the research life of the School and Faculty, including the production of excellent publications, the submission of high-quality grant applications, and the development of public engagement strategies for History.

The post-holders will be responsible to the Head of the School of Humanities and will undertake such teaching and administrative duties as may reasonably be negotiated with either the Head of School or Director of Programmes in History; the Chair in American History will also contribute to the American Studies programme.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to: Dr Alannah Tomkins, Programme Director for History, a.e.tomkins@keele.ac.uk or Professor David Amigoni, Head of the School of Humanities, d.amigoni@keele.ac.uk.
