Lectureship in Contemporary History
The School of History at the University of Leeds brings together a dynamic group of scholars working on Global History and International History in the period after 1945. This breadth of expertise feeds into a diverse undergraduate curriculum, as well as thriving MA and PhD programmes. We engage actively with local communities, and with partners at institutions around the world. We have particular strengths in the contemporary history of world affairs, including themes such as diplomacy, security, intelligence, and state-building, as well as transnational issues such as war volunteers, refugees, and decolonisation. We are looking to appoint someone whose expertise will help us to build on our existing strengths as we diversify our curricula, offering cutting-edge research and research-led teaching on a thematic area of contemporary history and exploring international or transnational perspectives.
As Lecturer, you will carry out research, teaching, and management within the School, Faculty and University, in an area of history from c. 1945 to the present day which speaks directly to the global challenges of the contemporary world.
