The Department is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in War Studies (Wargaming).  In addition to possessing expertise in the field of wargaming, the post holder will be expected to teach and research broadly in War Studies and in particular to contribute to the delivery of modules, both core and optional, at undergraduate and taught post-graduate levels.  They will also contribute to the supervision of doctoral students, undertake appropriate administrative duties, and contribute to the life of the department and the college (e.g. participation in graduation ceremonies, open days, interview panels)

The successful candidate will be expected to have a strong record of research and teaching within the sphere of wargaming/conflict simulation.  They will be expected to promote actively the academic study and employment of wargaming within the department and across relevant professional networks externally, including the armed forces.  In addition, they will be expected to maintain high quality research and publication and to seek out and bid for relevant academic research funding.

Applications are sought from candidates with a PhD and a strong research and teaching profile from within any relevant area within the broad remit of war studies. The Department welcomes applications from candidates from any disciplinary background, including mixed methods and quantitative approaches.

The Department is also open to strong applications from promising, but more junior scholars, but whose current experience may not put them in the Senior Lecturer range.

King’s has been a member of the Athena SWAN Charter since 2007.  The award was successfully renewed in 2016 for a further four years. The Athena SWAN agenda forms part of a wider suite of diversity and inclusion work streams.
