Closing date 19th November 2015
Stipendiary Lecturer in Medieval History (P-T),
(5-year fixed term contract)
Salary: within a range £12,757 to £14,348 per annum (plus other benefits)
Exeter College proposes, if there is a suitable candidate, to appoint a Stipendiary Lecturer in Medieval History. This is a part-time, fixed-term role, tenable from 1 January 2016 until 31 December 2020, and the postholder will teach History to undergraduates.
The Lecturer will be required to undertake tutorial or class teaching of undergraduates of the College (or, by exchange, undergraduates of other Colleges) up to a maximum of 6 ‘weighted’ hours per week averaged over the three eight-week teaching Terms of the academic year. They will also be required to set and mark College examinations, to participate fully in the admissions process, and to participate in the running of History and its joint Schools within the College.
The Lecturer should be able to teach all the following papers (as a minimum):
- a period of British History before 1500, at Prelim (first year) and FHS (second and third year) level;
- a period of General History before 1400, for Prelims;
- one of the Prelim “4th paper” options (i.e. a foreign text, historiography, quantification, or Approaches to History. For Approaches to History, candidates should offer one or two of the six possible ‘Approaches’);
- Disciplines of History (classes taught in collaboration with the other tutors at Exeter for the FHS)
An ability to teach additional papers (for example, a period of General History before 1500, for the FHS) may be an advantage.
The Lecturer may also be expected, as part of their six ‘weighted’ hour stint, to:
- supervise one or more undergraduate theses; and
- work with the other History Tutors to help in developing and implementing the College’s undergraduate study-skills programme.
