(Centre for Urban History, Leicester)

The closing date for applications is Tuesday 20th March 2007.

The Centre for Urban History, part of the School of Historical Studies at the University of Leicester, is internationally acclaimed for its pioneering research and teaching; it has a staff of four, an active MA programme and a large cohort of research students. It organises a seminar series, postgraduate workshops, summer schools and conferences and receives major grants, particularly from the ESRC. It also incorporates the East Midlands Oral History Archive (EHOMA) and the Media Archive for Central England (MACE). The Urban History Journal , the leading periodical in the field, is edited from the Centre.

The University seeks to strengthen the Centre's already flourishing research culture by appointing an outstanding researcher to a 'New Blood' Lectureship. The postholder will be guaranteed reduced teaching loads, study leave and start up funding for the first four years as part of the appointment package. The appointments will be made on the Lecturer grade 8 scale (from August 2007 £32,796 to £40,335 and exceptionally to £45,397). After the fourth year, the postholder will be expected to cover normal duties, undertaking research, teaching, administration and other activities supporting the work of the Centre and the School, and developing and enhancing its reputation, both internally and external to the University. The appointee will have an impressive record of innovative publication in Urban History to complement the strengths of other members of staff.

Candidates specialising in European urbanization and/or economic and social history are particularly encouraged to apply. Colleagues who will be in post in the Centre at the time the successful candidate takes up the New Blood post will be Professors Rosemary Sweet (Director) and Simon Gunn, and Dr Prashant Kidambi. Full details of their interests can be found on the Centre's website.
