Northumbria University is a thriving, research-rich university with a global reputation for academic excellence and a clear and ambitious vision. The University was the UK’s largest riser in research power in REF 2014. The Department of Humanities made a significant contribution to that rise, including through its History submission, which saw History’s combined total of 3* and 4* research at 77.1 per cent. The University also has the highest level of student entry qualifications of any modern university, in addition to exceptionally strong student satisfaction rates in History (100% satisfaction in History & Politics, and 99% in Single Honours History in the last NSS). We are also pursuing high-performing collaborations and partnerships at home and overseas for research and impact purposes.
The University is seeking to support its strength in History with the appointment of a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in American History. We invite applications from outstanding academics with an international research profile in this field. We are interested in applications from across the full spectrum of American history, including American political history from the late 19th and 20th centuries.
