Teaching Fellow: History of Political Thought, Department of History - UCL11-09-2020 14:07
UCL History is looking for a post-doctoral Teaching Fellow to teach the following courses:
'Method and Practice in the History of Political Thought and Intellectual History'
This is the core course of the MA in the History of Political Thought and Intellectual History. The successful candidate will co-convene and co-teach this module with QMUL colleagues.
'History of Political Thought in the West'
This is a 'Survey' module taught through weekly lectures and tutorial groups.
The successful candidate will co-convene this module which will be delivered on-line to a cohort of c.90 students.
This module aims to develop students’ skills and confidence as academic writers. Students have the opportunity to discuss with a tutor and with a small group of fellow students how best to approach research and writing at university and learn how work will be assessed.
Making History (15 credits) is designed to get students thinking in new ways about the process of constructing History from initial evidence-gathering to the dissemination of findings to public audiences. Students work closely in small groups of five to six to analyse an important historical question through the use of secondary material and primary sources, including the huge body of material artefacts and historical structures accessible to students in London.
Additionally, the successful candidate will: teach a MA module in Term one (the MA module will be one selected from the available small portfolio of existing modules, depending on the candidate's research interests); act as Writing and Learning Mentor; serve as a Personal Tutor to undergraduate students; supervise a small number of MA dissertations.
The post is funded for 12 months in the first instance from 28 September 2020.
Candidates must have a PhD in the relevant subject area; experience of teaching in a university History Department or equivalent; and the expertise to teach the courses specified above, with the ability to deliver an effective teaching experience on-line.
Applicants should apply online.
