Osborn Fellow in History

King Edward’s School is seeking an Osborn Fellow in History. This is an exciting new role to support the school’s IB ethos of enquiry and intellectual ambition, through history extension work and inter-departmental collaborations. The post reports to the Director of Enrichment, and the Head of History. This is a one-year fellowship from September 2022.

The department (three full-time and two part-time staff) is dynamic and committed, both to history and the school’s wide educational mission. We pride ourselves on being open, flexible and thoughtful practitioners who welcome informed historical and pedagogical debate; the Osborn Fellow would be encouraged to play their full part in the ongoing institutional and disciplinary debates about the nature, content and purpose of the historical curriculum.

Closing date: 9am on Monday, 6 June 2022.
Interviews: Interviews will commence on Thursday 26 May so early applications are encouraged and we reserve the right to make an appointment before the deadline.
