History seeks to appoint a Presidential Fellow specialising in environmental history. Environmental history is a growing area of research that seeks to understand how people have understood, shaped and been shaped by their world.
Applications are welcome from researchers working on any historical period or geographical area, whose research is concerned with the environment, broadly defined. The successful applicant will join a school-wide research community that has strengths in the history of water, ‘natural’ disasters, maritime contacts, environment and health, and histories of the body.
Preference may be given to candidates whose research can contribute to one or more of these themes. Closing date 3 April 2018.
