The Department of History at Sussex enjoys an international reputation for excellence in research, teaching, widening participation, and impact. Consistently ranked among the top History departments in the UK by university guides, it is one of the most distinguished and innovative departments in the country.
The University of Sussex celebrates and promotes diversity, equality and inclusion amongst our staff and students. We encourage applications from women, disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates.

The successful candidate for this fixed-term position will have a proven track record in Global History from 1500-2000. It is expected that the candidate’s expertise may rest on specific periods and/or geographical regions within that longer time frame.
A focus on the early modern period, and/or histories of the Islamic world, and/or global histories of religion, and/or histories of migration may be an advantage.
You will be able to give lectures and teach seminars, whether to students in place or learning remotely, mark different kinds of academic assessment, and perform administrative tasks.
The successful candidate will join a thriving, collegial School with a strong commitment to interdisciplinary study, and an intellectually ambitious undergraduate and postgraduate student community.
