Lecturer in Public Policy
The Department of Political Economy invites applications for a lectureship in Public Policy. We are developing new programmes in this area, including possible online delivery. We encourage applicants with an interest in any branch of public policy including policy analysis and evaluation, and theoretical and/or empirical work drawing on qualitative and/or quantitative methodologies. We have a preference for applicants that exhibit an interest in the relationship between public policy and political economy. The successful applicant will be able to contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching.
The Department of Political Economy (DPE) offers a broad-based interdisciplinary research and teaching space which brings the study of economics and politics closer together. The department is committed to theoretical and methodological pluralism and is based on an inclusive interdisciplinary vision. We welcome applicants for these posts from all candidates who share that vision and who will contribute to its broader diversity.
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.
