The post holder will also be a member of the Governing Body at Exeter College, with associated administrative and Trustee duties.

The successful candidate will have:

  • A research record of international standing, appropriate to the stage of the candidate’s career, with evidence of, or evidence of potential for producing, research of international standing in History;
  • The ability to undertake College administration and duties; and
  • A completed PhD, or equivalent, in History, or will be close to completion of a PhD in History (candidates must have submitted their PhD thesis for examination (i.e. in advance of their defence / viva voce examination) between 01 October 2014 and 30 September 2018 (inclusive)).

The Lecturer will be appointed on a salary of £32,331 per annum, inclusive of the College Housing Allowance (currently £8,723 per annum). In addition to salary, a range of other generous benefits are available, as set out in the Further Particulars.
