Position description

The Department wishes to appoint a Lecturer in Global Policy and International Relations. We encourage applications from candidates with expertise in global public policy, international relations, international development, international political economy, and/or international security. We are particularly interested in expanding our ability to speak to existing and future global policy challenges (e.g. climate change, food insecurity, migration, global health, failing states, poverty, inequality, technological change and conflict), foster innovative empirical research in these areas that has the potential to impact policy making, and deliver applied teaching in global policy and international relations.

The postholder will be expected to undertake research of the highest international standards within his or her own specialist field which will contribute to the research standing and culture of the Department. 

The successful candidate will be appointed to help deliver modules in our new BSc in Politics and International Relations. The post is essential in delivering undergraduate teaching on our international relations and international organisations modules and applied public policy teaching in our International Public Policy post-graduate teaching programme. 

The post will commence on the 1st September 2019.


Candidates must have a PhD in Political Science or another relevant discipline with a specialisation in international relations, international development, international political economy, and/or international security.

A proven ability to undertake academic research that is internationally recognised and of high-quality, a proven track record of publications with major university publishers or leading journals in Political Science, experience of promoting excellence in research-led teaching, a demonstrated ability to win grant-funding and experience of teaching modules with significant global politics and policy elements at undergraduate and/or postgraduate level are all essential.

Experience of conducting research that feeds into policy-making or other forms of real-world impact would be desirable.
