We are seeking a highly motivated and inspirational person to join our team of historians, to cover the teaching and other duties of Stephen Tuck while he is on Leverhulme-funded research leave.

You will have an aptitude for teaching and a familiarity with the existing literature and research in this field. In addition, you will have the ability to inspire and enthuse students at all levels.

On the administrative side you will also be required to take part in examining, interviewing, commenting on students' work, and providing student support as needed.
You will have a completed doctorate in a relevant field, or evidence that a doctorate is close to completion.
This is a joint appointment in association with Pembroke College and as such the postholder will be offered dining rights and membership of the common room.
You will be assigned a mentor, who will be a senior member of the History Faculty. In addition, the History Faculty provides support for early career and other researchers, including assistance in the preparation and submission of grant and fellowship applications through the Faculty Research Director and Research Development Officer.
