The School of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy seeks to appoint a Lecturer (assistant professor) specializing in the politics of either South Asia or West Asia. The successful applicant would be expected to start in September 2019.

The School of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy is a research-intensive unit that offers teaching which both challenges and enriches students. We provide a full range of undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes. We carry out research across the disciplines of politics, international relations and philosophy, but we place special emphasis on our research centres: the Centre for International Public Policy (CIPP), the Centre for Islamic and West Asian Studies (CIWAS), the Centre for the Politics of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East (AAME), the Democracy and Elections Centre, and the New Political Communications Unit.

We welcome applications from emerging scholars in the politics of one of the two regions targeted by this call. Applicants should specify which area they specialize in. Expertise in qualitative methods, and the ability to teach qualitative methods to undergraduate and postgraduate students, is a desirable characteristic for this position, but is not essential. 

The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, and to make a contribution to the intellectual life of either the Centre for the Politics of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East (AAME) or the Centre for Islamic and West Asian Studies. S/he will also be in a position to contribute strongly to the School’s submission to the forthcoming Research Excellence Framework (REF). 

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement 
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution 
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing. 
  • Free parking 
  • Competitive Maternity, Adoption and Shared Parental Leave provisions

The post is based in Egham, Surrey where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London.

This is a full time and permanent post.
