The successful candidate will need to demonstrate teaching experience at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, have a completed PhD in a relevant field, and have demonstrated the potential to publish outstanding research. The person appointed will be expected to carry out their share of administrative duties within the Department.

King’s College London is committed to creating an inclusive environment that promotes equality of opportunity for everyone in its community.

The War Studies Department is committed to embedding good diversity and inclusion practice into all of its activities. It actively supports the creation and maintenance of a community that allows all of its members to develop their full potential.
