The School seeks to appoint a Lecturer in the History of Political Thought, specialising in the ‘long’ twentieth century. This appointment will join the international research cluster formed by the Centre for the Study of the History of Political Thought, a cross-faculty collaborative venture based in the School of History. The aim of the new appointment is to build on this strength by extending the cluster’s range of research and teaching. Currently, the historians of political thought in the School cover the early modern period, extending from the Renaissance to the eighteenth century to the twentieth century.
By appointing in the twentieth century, the research cluster aims to strengthen further our expertise in the field of political ideas since 1890. The successful candidate will be expected to teach in the general history of political thought and intellectual history at undergraduate level, but to be able to supervise in the twentieth century at Masters and PhD level. Active participation in the activities of the Centre for the Study of the History of Political Thought will be expected.
