Wadham College invites applications for a Stipendiary Lectureship in History for the academic year 2010–11 to cover some of the teaching of Dr Matthew Kempshall, who will be on sabbatical leave. The Lecturer will be required to give six hours a week of tutorials during the eight weeks of full term, averaged over the year (the College allows stipendiary Lecturers to ‘weight’ their hours if teaching in groups of two or three, and thus real contact hours may be slightly less). The stipend will be on point one of the Senior Tutors’ Committee recommended scale, presently £12,137 a year.

The Lecturer will be expected to take responsibility for teaching at least three out of four period papers for the first-year examinations (History of the British Isles I and II; General History I or II), together with analogous British and General History papers for the Final Honour School, as well as any Optional, Further, or Special Subjects which they are able to teach. He or she will also be expected to supervise any appropriate undergraduate theses and participate in the team teaching of the first-year Approaches to History or Historiography papers, as well as the Final Honour School methodology paper. Full details of the current syllabuses are available through the University’s website at The post might be particularly appropriate for a graduate student coming towards the end of, or just having finished, her or his doctoral studies.

Further particulars may be obtained from the College website ( or from the College’s Tutorial Office (email The closing date for applications is noon on 11 May 2010.
