LANCASTER UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY PROFESSOR OR SENIOR LECTURER/READER MODERN EUROPEAN HISTORY

Reference: A260

Lancaster University is pleased to invite applications for the post of Professor or Senior Lecturer/Reader in the field of Modern European History. We are looking for applicants of outstanding research potential; the level of the appointment made will be determined by career age and research and teaching experience. The appointment arises from the importance attached at Lancaster to the research and teaching of modern European history (including by colleagues in the Department of European Languages and Culture), and also in anticipation of the retirement in the next few years of Professor Martin Blinkhorn, a specialist in modern Spanish and Mediterranean History, and Dr Alan Wood, whose expertise lies in the history of Russia. The History Department is the base for Dr Thomas Rohkrämer and Professor Derek Sayer, and because of their specialisms and the desire to retain a wide range of interests it is not likely that an appointment will be made with a specific focus on modern German or Czech history. Specialists in modern French, Russian, Spanish or Italian history are particularly encouraged to apply.

For further information, details to be posted next week at: http://www.personnel.lancs.ac.uk/CurrentVacancies.aspx. Otherwise, contact Dr. Stephen Constantine ([email protected])
