So if you’re looking for the next chapter in your career, it’s here. You’ll be given the opportunity to challenge yourself, build on your skills, and make a significant contribution to a workplace that’s filled with energetic and inspiring people.

The Opportunity

Monash is seeking to appoint a Professor of History to build upon its longstanding research strength in history, and to position the School of Philosophical, Historical and International Studies as a global leader in innovative research and teaching practice in the discipline of history. The Professor of History will join a vibrant group of historians at Monash, develop international research collaborations and extend the well-established cohort of undergraduate and postgraduate students in history.

The Professor of History will have an outstanding international reputation in any field of history, although preference may be given to applicants who specialise in the fields of global, transnational or imperial histories in the early modern or modern periods. An exceptional track record of research and competitive research funding, and a demonstrated commitment to teaching excellence and pedagogical innovation, are essential requirements for the position. Much of the curriculum in the discipline of history at Monash is team-taught, and the Professor of History will be required to teach into established units, and contribute to the process of curriculum development, in both history and international studies.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. This position at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.   

If you have a passion for research and teaching in history, and believe you can fulfil the requirements of this high-profile role, you are strongly encouraged to apply.

Your application must address the selection criteria.
