The Department of History, Politics and War Studies is looking to appoint a permanent, part-time (0.5 post) Lecturer in War Studies to contribute to the provision of high-quality teaching, research and course development and the enhancement of academic performance, student attainment and satisfaction.


We invite applications from candidates with teaching and research expertise in C20th War Studies / Military History, with a particular focus on the history of the First and / or Second World Wars.  An ability to teach aspects of non-European conflict would be desirable.  You will play a key role in promoting new perspectives, sources and approaches within our existing and future teaching and will complement and broaden our global coverage of the histories of conflict, class, gender, generations, communities, and consumption. This is an exciting opportunity to develop our work towards diversifying and decolonising the curriculum. 


The successful candidate will be committed to the organisation and delivery of the core War Studies curriculum, participate in the development of our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, and engage with the Department’s recruitment and outreach activities.  As a research-active scholar, you will also be working with a well-established, successful, and growing REF unit of assessment, and will have the potential to attract external research funding and supervise postgraduate students. 


Informal enquiries can be directed to Dr David Hussey, Head of Department

We are proud to have been awarded Disability Confident employer status, included in the Stonewall list of employers and are working towards improving our practices against Athena Swan and the Race Equality Charter. We believe in creating an even playing field for all our colleagues, where we can all belong.
