We are seeking to appoint an Associate Professor (or Professor) in North American Women’s History from 1 October 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter. The appointment will be made in association with a Tutorial Fellowship at Corpus Christi College.

Applications from candidates with research and teaching expertise in North American history in any era from 1600 to 2000, broadly defined to include areas of the North American continent which did not form part of the USA, and with a strong record of research and teaching in Women’s History are strongly encouraged.

The appointee will conduct advanced research, give lectures, classes and tutorials, supervise, support and examine students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and undertake administrative duties for both the Faculty and College. S/he will also play a strategic role in developing research programmes in Women’s History, building on the success of the Oxford Centre in Gender, Identity and Subjectivity and the University’s Women in the Humanities programme.

The successful candidate will hold a doctorate in history, US history, American history, or a related relevant field. S/he will have primary expertise in one or more aspects of North American Women’s History (1600-2000), and a research record of international standing appropriate to the stage of the candidate’s career. S/he will demonstrate excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching, along with the personal qualities needed to encourage a high level of achievement at all levels. The ability and willingness to undertake administrative duties, and evidence of good interpersonal and organisational skills are essential.
