You will play a key role in supporting, developing and expanding our current and future early modern curriculum. Over time, you will contribute to some combination of our British, European and Global history modules, our interdisciplinary modules, and our postgraduate teaching. Candidates must have a research specialism in early modern history (c.1500-c.1800) which does not focus, exclusively, on early modern Britain and Ireland. We are especially interested in applications from candidates working on European history, ideally with a focus on its global interconnections.

The successful postholder will be required to prepare distance learning materials, contribute to the presentation of modules, and contribute to our research culture and REF preparations. Scholarship and public engagement may also form part of the postholder’s duties, depending on experience and inclination. You can live anywhere in the United Kingdom, but the role is based at the Open University’s Milton Keynes campus and involves attendance there at academic community and module team meetings. This is an ideal first academic post for someone looking to pursue a career in teaching and research, so we especially welcome applications from candidates who have recently successfully defended their PhD, or who have not held substantive academic posts since completing their doctorate. Skills and experience You will need: A postgraduate degree (or equivalent) in History or a cognate area (preferably a PhD), or other professional experience indicative of a similar level of discipline expertise and writing ability. Relevant teaching experience. An understanding of The Open University’s role, ethos and teaching methods. The desire and ability to be a dynamic member of teams, giving and taking feedback on teaching and assessment materials in a friendly and constructive manner. The ability and desire to contribute to a broad range of modules and teaching topics, going beyond your core specialism. A record of research and publication that will complement and enhance that of History at the Open University, commensurate with career stage and the level of post to be offered. If you would like to discuss the application or recruitment process before making an application, you will find contact details on our website. What you get in return Staff Benefits include an attractive pension proposition and 30/33 days holiday per annum pro rata, plus Bank Holidays and Christmas closure days.
