The University of Lincoln seeks to appoint a Lecturer in Modern History (Post 1800).
Our ideal candidate for this position will have an emerging teaching profile in any period of modern history, including American History, a developing research profile that will ensure he or she will be returned at the next REF, and the ability to teach across the curriculum in modern history and historiography. He or she will play a key role in the School’s curriculum development. We are especially interested to read applications from candidates who would consolidate an established thematic strength while adding geographical range to our curriculum.
Lincoln is a wonderful city for scholars of all periods, boasting structures dating from the Roman and medieval periods until today, including Britain’s finest cathedral and a recently-restored Norman castle. There are excellent local museums and galleries, archives spanning the medieval to the modern period, notably the Media Archive for Central England, Lincolnshire Archives, Tennyson Collection, the Museum of Lincolnshire Life, the Usher Gallery and The Collection.
The School itself offers a friendly and welcoming working environment. There is a strong collaborative research culture within the school with regular seminars and ongoing support for research activity, including funding for research and conference activities and a research leave scheme.
