About the role

This is an exciting opportunity to join the thriving Medieval History community in the Faculty, and to gain teaching experience at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Although this is primarily a teaching role, you will also conduct independent research, assist in the running of the History School at Wadham College and play an active part in the interdisciplinary College community.

You will have research and teaching interests in Medieval History. You will be able to inspire and enthuse students and draw on your own research to inform and augment your teaching.

This is a full-time, fixed term post and is tenable from 1st October 2022 until 30th September 2023 (limited by external funding).

About you

You will hold a completed doctorate in a relevant field, or evidence that a doctorate is close to completion.  You will possess sufficient depth and breadth of knowledge, alongside research and teaching interests, in Medieval History which will enable you to develop course materials and research proposals.  You will have a publication record commensurate with career stage, and familiarity with the existing literature and research in the field of Medieval History.

You will be able to inspire and enthuse students and draw on your own research to inform and augment your teaching.

Application Process
