As part of a planned expansion, the Department of History at the University of Sussex wishes to appoint two Lecturers in the broad field of war and history since c1650. The Directorship of the Centre for War, Representation and Society may be available to a suitably qualified candidate.
Sussex has a long tradition of research and research-led teaching in social and cultural aspects of military conflict. It is home to the Mass Observation Archive and has recently acquired an important archive of material relating to the French Resistance in World War Two.
The current appointments are designed to build on this tradition, and broaden the scope of our engagement with the history of War. Accordingly, we seek applications from suitably qualified scholars; area of specialisation is open, but we would particularly welcome applications from those with expertise in the causes and conduct of war; men, manpower and technology; or resistance and collaboration.
It is expected that the successful applicants will have a demonstrable record of high quality teaching and research, and a complete entry of international quality publications for the forthcoming REF exercise.
The successful candidates will have a strong track record of teaching and research, and have a full hand for the forthcoming REF exercise. They will join a thriving, collegial department with a commitment to interdisciplinary study and a student community which is both well-qualified and intellectually ambitious. Good communication skills, and an ability to work productively as part of a friendly team-oriented department are essential for these positions.
For an informal discussion of the post, please contact the Head of the History, Department, Professor Clive Webb, in the first instance by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
