Three Lectureships in Modern History Ref: AA04112

Applications are invited for three Lectureships in Modern History (1750 to the present). For two of the posts, we are ideally looking for candidates with interests in British history, the history of the Atlantic world and/or American history, but those with other specialisms are also encouraged to apply. The third post is a lectureship in the History of Transport, Traffic and Mobility within the Institute of Railway Studies and Transport History, a collaboration between the University of York and the National Railway Museum. The successful candidates will have completed their PhDs and have plans in place for the development and publication of their research. They will teach across the whole range of undergraduate and graduate studies, including the supervision of PhD students and will also play key roles in the further development of the Department’s Modern School. The Department of History, with 33 staff and some 700 undergraduate and graduate students, is judged ‘Excellent’ for teaching and achieved a 5A ranking in RAE 2001.

Informal inquiries may be made to the Head of Department, Professor Mark Ormrod, e-mail: [email protected]. Salary in the range £23,296-£25,451 p.a. All three posts are available from 1 October 2004.
