AEP Lecturer in International Politics (Education)
The Department of Political Economy invites applications for a lectureship in International Politics (Academic Education Pathway). The successful candidate will contribute to the delivery of teaching in the Department, especially in the fields of international politics, defined broadly to include international studies, global governance, global environmental politics, international political economy, international security, gender and IR theory, or related fields. An ability to teach introductory International Politics at undergraduate level is required, and a more specialist module at undergraduate or postgraduate level, ideally in US Foreign Policy.
The department is informed by an inclusive interdisciplinary vision and welcomes applications from candidates who share that vision. The Department values diversity and inclusion and a work-life balance.
The Department of Political Economy is a unique interdisciplinary enterprise located in the heart of London with proximity to both the world of politics and the city. Founded in 2010, the department is the only dedicated Department of Political Economy in the United Kingdom. The teaching and research recognises that the disciplines of Politics and Economics are inextricably linked; it is not possible to properly understand political processes without exploring the economic context in which politics operates. Similarly, sound economic analysis requires an awareness of how resource allocation is conditioned by political institutions, historical context and ethical values, and the way these have been understood by different traditions in social thought. In a world characterised by financial uncertainty, ecological insecurity and value conflict, the links between political and economic processes are ever more apparent and the need for a multifaceted appreciation of how they operate, has never been greater.
