A globally outstanding centre of teaching and research excellence, a collegiate community of extraordinary people, a unique and historic setting – Durham is a university like no other.

We are looking for two scholars of exceptional ability to join our internationally-renowned Department of History, taking up two newly-created posts in the history of South Asia: a professor/associate professor and an assistant professor.

Durham is home to an outstanding community of historians working on multiple periods and geographical areas. We are making a major investment in South Asian history to expand and enrich that community, and we welcome applications from exceptional scholars in any chronological or thematic area of South Asian history that complements the research strengths of the Department. We are particularly keen to hear from candidates with expertise in one or more South Asian languages. 

As part of Durham University, you’ll be working with exceptional young minds, all with the desire to ask, and answer, the big questions. Access to leading edge facilities and an active contributor to the global research and university community means you’ll be part of an international and diverse network of partners spanning the world’s best research institutions, organisations and businesses. And all this within the evocative and historic surroundings of the city, county and community that is Durham.

We find it easy to be proud of the extraordinary people we have at Durham. We offer the inspiration, they achieve the outstanding. We invite you to join them.
