Associate Professorship (or Professorship) in Global Imperial History


Faculty of History, George Street, Oxford

Grade 36S: £46,336 - £62,219 p.a.

We are seeking to appoint an Associate Professor (or Professor) in Global Imperial History from 1 September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. The appointment will be made in association with a Professorial Fellowship at Nuffield College.

The salary will be in the range £46,336 - £62,219 p.a. plus additional benefits (including the College’s Academic Responsibility Allowance of £22,288 p.a.) as detailed in the job description. Additional salary of £2,700 p.a. will apply if the appointee is awarded the title of Professor.

Applications are encouraged from candidates with internationally excellent research and teaching expertise in any area of global imperial history from circa 1750 to 2000. We have no preference as to either the area of geographical expertise or the empire(s) with which the candidate’s research has principally been concerned. But what is more important is a willingness to situate imperial history within a global and comparative context.

The appointee will conduct advanced research, give lectures, classes and tutorials, supervise, support and examine students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and undertake administrative duties for both the Faculty and College. S/he will also play a strategic role in the development of the Oxford Centre for Global History, develop research links between the Faculty and College, and secure external research funding for projects in the field.

The successful candidate will hold a doctorate in history, global history, imperial history, or a related relevant field. S/he will have primary expertise in one or more aspects of modern global imperial history (c.1750-2000), and a research record of international standing appropriate to the stage of the candidate’s career. S/he will demonstrate excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching, along with the personal qualities needed to encourage a high level of achievement at all levels. The ability and willingness to undertake administrative duties, and evidence of good interpersonal and organisational skills are essential.

Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.

All applications must be made online. For further information, including details about how to apply, please click here.

The deadline for applications is 12.00 noon (UK time) on Monday 1 October 2018.
