Lecturer / Associate Professor in Politics / International Relations / International Development

Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out teaching and research in one or more of the above three areas? Are you able to use your expertise to support or complement our existing strengths in the School of Politics and International Studies? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University?

The School of Politics and International Studies (POLIS) covers research and teaching across politics, international relations and global development, and while you may have a primary academic identity you will work across the School as a whole. As a research active academic, you will maintain a strong research and publication record, and contribute to the School’s research activities and research culture. You will be expected to deliver undergraduate and taught postgraduate modules in appropriate subject areas, as well as supervising BA and MA dissertations; and to recruit and supervise PhD candidates. 

You will carry out research, teaching and management within the school, faculty and university and contribute to academic leadership in your field, working within University values and policies which are designed to promote dignity, diversity and inclusiveness. The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture. We welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons and would particularly welcome applicants from groups currently under-represented in the School. All appointments will be made on merit.

As part of your application, please could you submit copies of your two strongest publications? These should represent your best work in terms of originality, significance and rigour and both should be published since January 2014. One could be a draft that has been submitted or is close to submission.
