|We are seeking a highly motivated and inspirational person to join our team of historians, to cover the teaching and other duties of Avi Lifschitz while he is on Leverhulme-funded research leave.
You will bring exciting perspectives to the teaching and study of European and World History, with a special focus on 18th-century Europe. You will have an aptitude for teaching, with some experience of teaching European History (1650 – 1780), and the ability to inspire and enthuse students at all levels.
Although this is primarily a teaching and administrative role, the successful candidate will be expected to engage in advanced study and research in a relevant field of history.
On the administrative side you will also be required to take part in examining, interviewing, commenting on students’ work, and providing student support as needed.
You will have a completed doctorate in a relevant field, or evidence that a doctorate is close to completion.
This is a joint appointment in association with Magdalen College and the successful candidate will be appointed to a Special Lectureship at Magdalen College, and in respect of duties for the College will report to the Senior Tutor of Magdalen.
This post comes with the opportunity to become a member of the Senior Common Room of Magdalen, with an entitlement to free meals (lunches and dinners) whilst in post, and will have the use of a teaching/study room in College.
You will be assigned a mentor, who will be a senior member of the History Faculty. In addition, the History Faculty provides support for early career and other researchers, including assistance in the preparation and submission of grant and fellowship applications through the Faculty Research Director and Research Development Officer.
