Department Of History

Grade 7: (£33,199 - £39,609) per annum

This role is full-time and fixed term from 1 October 2019 - 30 September 2020.

The Department of History at Durham University seeks to appoint a talented individual to the fixed term role of Teaching Fellow. We welcome applications from those with research and teaching interests in Twentieth-Century Russian History. The post-holder will be expected to teach a level 2 module ‘Soviet Socialism in the Cold War: The USSR 1945-1991’, a strand of the level 2 historiographical module (‘Conversations with History’) taught in small seminar groups (‘Interpreting Stalin’s Soviet Union’), contribute to the level 1 module ‘Making History’, and undertake some undergraduate and MA dissertation supervision. Details for the modules may be found at: https://www.dur.ac.uk/resources/faculty.handbook/degrees/frameworks/v100.pdf

Teaching Fellowships offer the opportunity of valuable experience to those early in their academic careers and the University is keen to maximise the benefit to as many people as possible. The post of Teaching Fellow will involve a significant teaching load, which may extend into the summer period, and there may be related scholarship and the opportunity for administrative duties which relate to education and pedagogy.

The post is for a fixed term only, and it is not anticipated that the post will be extended beyond this fixed term.
