We are looking for applicants specialised in modern or contemporary European political history, ideally with a focus on any of the following themes: the relationship between gender and politics; the history of democracy and its discontent; the history of multiculturalism and citizenship; the history of colonialism or imperialism; the history of environmental activism; or the history of political ideas. In addition, we are also particularly interested in candidates who can help us expand our scope to the history of the Mediterranean, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Britain, comparative history, and/or (post)colonial states.
