Assistant Professor in International Politics (Teaching)
The School of Government and International Affairs (SGIA) at Durham University seeks to appoint a talented individual to the role of Assistant Professor (Teaching Track). We welcome applications from those with teaching interests in the broad field of International Relations/International Politics and we are particularly eager to hear from applicants who are able to deliver innovative lectures, seminars, and tutorials on race, post/de-colonialism, gender, and/or methodologically continental approaches to research in International Relations.
This post offers an exciting opportunity to make a contribution to the development of SGIA's teaching and curriculum, while allowing you unrivalled opportunities to progress and embed your career in an exciting and progressive institution. This post further expects you to take part in and lead the School's ongoing efforts to prioritize gender and diversity in the curriculum and support first generation and minority students. The successful candidate will contribute to teaching our core International Politics modules at both UG and PGT levels; will contribute to curriculum development in this area including efforts at diversifying our reading lists; will be directly involved in existing efforts at diversifying our student intake and supporting minority students; and, will supervise PhD students and be involved in PhD progression reviews. You will work within and contribute towards a vibrant research culture which emphasises research-led teaching, including the role of pedagogical research in educational practice, principally via membership of the International Politics Research Group. Among other EDI initiatives, the department is currently in the process of diversifying its curriculum and this is a project we would be keen for the post-holder to contribute to.
