The School of Humanities and Social Science (HSS) offers programmes in the areas of History, English Literature, Media Communication and Culture, Sociology, Criminology and International Relations. You will be joining a vibrant school that provides an outstanding learning environment for students and prioritises both excellence in teaching and supporting staff to produce impactful and high quality research of international standing. HSS is well positioned for a very strong REF 2021 performance and in the recent NSS 2018 survey the subject areas in the school scored an average of 89% overall satisfaction, which is 6% above the sector average. Students are encouraged to be creative, enthusiastic and scholarly in their approach to learning. Their programmes of study allow them to engage in debate with a range of practitioners and cultural partners locally, nationally and internationally, demonstrating the university’s civic and global engagement agenda.

You will join our collegial and innovative school and teach on a number of modules related to International Relations and Politics at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The post offers the opportunity to contribute to the delivery of a vibrant curriculum and further enhance and expand both teaching and research expertise in the School. You are required to have experience of delivering HE material and research and teaching specialisms in either International Relations theories and/or political theories/philosophy and at least one of the following: international organisations/regimes; political economy; comparative politics; political activism; quantitative research methods, or a regional focus on Latin America, Africa or Europe.

This is an exciting time to join LJMU an a growing team of staff who focus on International Relations and Politics. Building on the successful launch of our MA International Relations in 2017. We have developed a BA International Relations and Politics, which launches in September 2019. The BA speaks to the past and present in order to understand the politics of our contemporary world and through research driven teaching and engagement with practitioners it will give students the opportunity to think about their own politics and how they can actively engage with the world. The BA will provide a grounding in international relations theory while examining in-depth issues of international significance. Fieldwork and networking with political actors will build a range of transferrable skills that will enhance employability prospects and demonstrate the School of Humanities and Social Science (HSS) commitment to providing an excellent student experience.

LJMU values diversity and provides a supportive and inclusive environment where everyone can fulfil their potential.
