Job description

The Department of History at Sussex enjoys an international reputation for excellence in research, teaching, widening participation, and impact.  Consistently ranked among the top History departments in the UK by university guides, it is one of the most distinguished and innovative departments in the country.

The University of Sussex celebrates and promotes diversity, equality and inclusion amongst our staff and students. We encourage applications from women, disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates. We believe that the diversity of our staff and student community is fundamental to creative thinking, pedagogic innovation, intellectual exchange, and our interdisciplinary approach to research and learning.

The successful candidate for this fixed-term position will have a proven track record in Global History from 1500-2000. It is expected that the candidate’s expertise may rest on specific periods and/or geographical regions within that longer time frame.

A focus on the early modern period, and/or histories of the Islamic world, and/or global histories of religion, and/or histories of migration may be an advantage.

You will be able to give lectures and teach seminars, whether to students in place or learning remotely, mark different kinds of academic assessment, and perform administrative tasks.

The successful candidate will join a thriving, collegial School with a strong commitment to interdisciplinary study, and an intellectually ambitious undergraduate and postgraduate student community. Ability to teach, good communication skills, and an ability to work productively as part of a friendly, team-oriented department are essential skills for this position.

Please contact the Head of History (Teaching and Learning), Dr Chris Warne (HistoryHoD@sussex.ac.uk) for informal enquiries.
