Reference: SHUM0024

We seek to appoint two fixed term 0.5 posts in Scottish history, one in Contemporary Scottish history and the other in Modern Scottish history (18th/19th centuries).

These will complement our existing specialism in Scotland and the Union and, for both posts, we have particular interest in academics with expertise either in civil society or land and the environment.

You will make a significant contribution to the Centre for Scotland’s Land Futures and the Centre for Scottish Culture and be involved in all levels of teaching, including the School’s online Masters’ programme in Scottish History.  We have a tradition of attracting research students in Scottish history many of whom have been successful in securing funded studentships.  The programme also has close links with the local community and the successful applicant would be strongly encouraged to participate in public engagement activities.

The central responsibility of the Lecturer in Contemporary History will be to enhance partnership-based research in the School and to develop the School’s impact strategy.

As part of your duties, you will be expected to contribute to the University’s Enterprise, Employability and Entrepreneurship agenda. We value and support innovative approaches to teaching and learning, and you will be expected to make a significant contribution to our commitment to teaching excellence. You will also undertake excellent research with demonstrable impact, along with a strategy for knowledge exchange.

The School of Humanities expands understanding of the world's culture and creativity through the critical study of history, literature, comics and film, creative writing, continental philosophy, modern languages, and practice-based archival education and is the home of Scotland's liberal arts degree.  We pioneer cross disciplinary links across a wide range of subjects both beyond and within the Arts and Humanities.

Informal inquires may be made to Professor Graeme Morton at g.z.morton@dundee.ac.uk

Interviews will take place May 2017.
