Deadline: Associate Research Fellow - Fall of State Socialism


Associate Research Fellow (Fall of State Socialism)
Department of History, University of Exeter -College of Humanities
(Ref. P45185)

The fall of state socialism in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe is often viewed as a watershed in world history. This major Leverhulme Trust-funded project will consider how the end of state socialism and that which followed have come to be understood both globally and in the region which experienced these events.

Three five-year postdoctoral fellowships are offered from 1 January 2014. Applicants from all humanities and social science fields, dealing with a wide range of themes and sources – from oral sources to political discourse to film to literature to legal texts, and beyond - are welcomed.

Postdoctoral fellows will be required to carry out their own research leading to a monograph of international standing, or equivalent; lead the development of a broader thematic area connected to their own research through hosting workshops/ a conference and producing appropriate publications (such as a thematic journal issue or edited volume); and work on collaborative outputs – such as the project’s website, collective writing, policy engagement, and a museum exhibition - where appropriate. Applications are welcome not only from scholars of Eastern Europe or the former Soviet Union, but also those interested in the representations and impact of this historical shift across the world.

Applicants should therefore outline a major research project with a level of ambition commensurate with a funded five-year project. Details of what is required can be found in the job description.

Applicants are welcome to contact James Mark, Professor of History, at or on 00-44-(0)1392-724295 to discuss their research proposals.

The starting salary will be £25,504 - £26,476, Grade E, depending on skills and experience.

The closing date for completed applications is 3 July 2013

Interviews are expected to take place during the last two weeks of July.

The University of Exeter is an equal opportunity employer which is 'Positive about Disabled People'. Whilst all applicants will be judged on merit alone, we particularly welcome applications from groups currently underrepresented in the workforce.


To apply, please send: a completed application form, the proposed project materials outlined in the job description, an academic CV, the names of three referees, and a covering letter to Kerrie Brealy ( ) quoting reference P45185.
