We are interested in hearing from applicants working in a range of different subfields related to but not limited to race, ethnicity, multiculturalism, immigration, decolonial and non-western political thought.  

We are also looking for someone who can shape our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. As a department that practices research-led teaching, we’ll also expect you to offer a third-year module defined by your research interests.

About the characteristics we value. Alongside research and teaching, we are looking for individuals who can build intellectual communities, are collegial, and value collaborative working.
