About the role

The Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy at the University of Missouri and the Rothermere American Institute (RAI) jointly seek to appoint a Career Development Fellow in Atlantic History, tenable for three years with effect from 1 September 2024. This post is open to candidates whose research focuses on the political dimensions, broadly defined, of Atlantic history in any chronological period since 1600, including the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

This post is intended to provide a promising early career scholar with a congenial environment for the development of their research and academic administration beyond the doctoral level. You will have a PhD in a relevant subject and have undertaken distinguished and imaginative research at doctoral level with plans for future research of a similar or greater quality.

You will work closely with colleagues from the Kinder Institute in delivering the University of Missouri's MA in Atlantic History and Politics, assisting in curriculum development, logistical arrangements, and teaching on the month- long summer school.

In addition, you will be closely involved in the academic life of the RAI, with duties such as co-administering and organising the American History Research Seminar for up to three terms and contributing to, as well as participating in, the RAI's programme of lectures and seminars.

You will also produce world-leading research for publication in books and articles in any subject relating to the political history of the Atlantic world between 1600 and the present, and you will be encouraged to assist in the teaching of history to Oxford undergraduates for up to three hours per week.

The post will be based in Oxford at the RAI. The RAI is Oxford's centre for the study of the United States and its place in the world. Every year we host a full programme of research seminars and events which attract leading scholars and public figures from across the world. We have a lively and friendly community made up of our small administration team, early career researchers, graduate students, Oxford academics, visiting fellows, and librarians. In this role you will be fully integrated into the RAI community.

Application process

For your online application, you will be required to upload your curriculum vitae and a supporting statement, setting out how you meet the selection criteria for the post, using examples of your skills and experience. As part of your application you will be asked to provide details of two referees and indicate whether we can contact them now.

Only applications received by midday on 11 June 2024 can be considered. Interviews are expected to be held on 4 July 2024.

Committed to equality and valuing diversity
