The successful candidate will be a top-class researcher capable of conducting independent research and collaborating closely with the PI in Sheffield and the Co-I and PDRA in Utrecht.

They will be based in the Department of History, joining one of the most active centres for historical research in the country.

We also have a vibrant postgraduate research culture, and our expertise in applying digital technology to historical research informs scholarship and teaching at every level. We teach the history of all periods from antiquity to the present day, taking in Europe, South Asia, and the Americas, and attract highly qualified undergraduate and MA students.
