Sir John Elliott Junior Research Fellowship in Spanish History (1400-1900)

Exeter College (part of the University of Oxford) invites applications for the Sir John Elliott Junior Research Fellowship in Spanish History (1400-1900). The Fellowship, which is strictly temporary, will be tenable for a period of up to 36 months (with effect from 1 October 2018).

This post is made possible through the generosity of Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica (CEEH).

The main duties of the post are to engage in advanced study and research in the area of Spanish History – specifically, into some aspect of the internal history of Spain between 1400 and 1900, and/ or of the history of Spanish activity in Europe in the same period – with a view to building an international research profile through innovative original research, preparing work for publication (in monographs and/ or journals), and participating in international conferences. The postholder will also be a member of the Governing Body at Exeter College, with associated administrative and Trustee duties.

There will be no teaching obligation attached to the Fellowship, although the postholder will be welcome to do a limited amount of teaching within the collegiate University if they wish to do so, and especially where such teaching experience will enhance the career development of the postholder.

The successful candidate will have:

  • A research record of international standing, appropriate to the stage of the candidate’s career, with evidence of, or evidence of potential for producing, research of international standing in History;
  • The ability to undertake College administration and duties; and
  • A completed PhD, or equivalent, in History, or will be close to completion of a PhD in History (candidates must have submitted their PhD thesis for examination (i.e. in advance of their defense / viva voce examination) between 01 October 2014 and 30 September 2018 (inclusive)).

The Lecturer will be appointed on a salary of £32,331 per annum, inclusive of the College Housing Allowance (currently £8,723 per annum). In addition to salary, a range of other generous benefits are available, as set out in the Further Particulars.
