Closing date 11th January 2015
Early Medieval History Lectureship,
University of Leeds.
Applications are invited for a Lectureship in Early Medieval History in the School of History to start in September 2015. This post has become necessary due to the forthcoming retirement of Professor Ian Wood, who has taught early medieval history in the School with great distinction for almost forty years.
We welcome applications from historians interested in any aspect of the history of the Early Middle Ages between c. 400 and c. 900, although it is unlikely that we shall appoint someone whose research and teaching are wholly or largely concerned with the British Isles. You will be expected to provide both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in the period c. 400-900. You will be able to teach at all levels of the undergraduate programme, and be able to contribute to the MA programmes as well as supervise research students. You will contribute to the administration and management of the School’s activities, develop the place of Early Medieval history within the research culture of the School and the Institute for Medieval Studies, and also to develop this strand of history as part of the School’s policy to foster ‘public engagement’.
You will have a PhD in Early Medieval history and relevant teaching experience. You will be expected to produce a significant range of publications that will qualify you for inclusion in the next REF, and indicate an ability to make a distinctive contribution to research activity in this subject area in the years to come. You will be given every encouragement to develop your subject within the research and teaching environment of the School and the Institute for Medieval Studies, subject to the requirements of the post. You will also be encouraged to take part in the supervision of postgraduate research degrees from early on during your tenure of this post.
