Lecturer in African Studies

Are you keen to contribute to the development of the North of England’s most vibrant interdisciplinary Centre for African Studies? Are you an academic with proven abilities to carry out research-led teaching in African History, Literary Studies, Politics or Religious Studies? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University? Do you have an excellent research record and the potential to establish an international reputation?

As Lecturer, you will teach on Leeds University’s Centre for African Studies’ (LUCAS) existing interdisciplinary modules, and on modules within your host School. You will develop new modules, related to your research area, which will enhance the curriculum of your host School, and African Studies more broadly. You will be expected to contribute to LUCAS’s interdisciplinary research culture, through organising events, building relationships with partner organizations, and developing collaborative research funding applications. You will also contribute to the administration and management of LUCAS.

You will have a PhD in African History, Literary Studies, Global Development, International Relations, Politics or Religious Studies (or a related field) alongside a clear plan for future research including the pursuit of research grant income. You will have relevant teaching experience and an enthusiastic approach to teaching African Studies.
