The Department of International Development (DID), King’s College London, is seeking outstanding candidates for the post of Lecturer in International Development (Emerging Economies). The successful applicant will have demonstrable expertise in theory and research relevant to the area of International Development, and knowledge/expertise either in ‘emerging economy’ / middle income countries or in the study of global institutions and networks.

DID is a young, innovative and contemporary development studies department. Our focus is on middle-income developing countries or ‘emerging economies’, meaning the fast growing economies of the developing world where foreign aid is largely irrelevant. The mission is to explore the sources of success as well as understand the major development challenges they continue to face.

The appointee will join an interdisciplinary team currently working on a wide range of topics including political economy of development, inclusive growth, inequality and poverty, gender rights, natural resources, international trade, migration, health policy, education, and other pressing issues facing emerging economies today.
