Applications are invited for a full-time, without-term Lectureship / Senior Lectureship in British History.  We seek an historian of nineteenth and or twentieth century British history, with a preference for political approaches.

We are investing in our history provision and this appointment will provide the opportunity to be part of an exciting new initiative.   Candidates must have an interest in developing exciting, innovative programmes of study that are attractive to students. 
 
The University of Roehampton is the most research-intensive modern university in the UK, with some of the highest regarded academic departments in the country. 
 
This is an exciting time for the university, with investment in new curricula, the construction of a new £35m state-of-the-art library and student accommodation, the development of a number of external partnerships across the globe and plans for more doctoral scholarships. 
 
We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers.  We are ranked the best modern university in London in major UK league tables and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas.
