The School of Government and International Affairs (SGIA) at Durham University seeks to appoint two Assistant Professors in International Political Economy (IPE): one open and one with a quantitative methodology.

SGIA is building a substantial research group in IPE and welcome applicants with any research interest. As an ambitious and growing research cluster, we value research excellence above all else. We expect both post holders to be able to engage with and contribute to a pluralist and mixed-methods research culture. We particularly welcome applicants whose research speaks to the following themes.

  • Global development.
  • Governance and institutions.
  • The local and every-day.

Post 1: Assistant Professor in International Political Economy (open).

All research interests will be considered. The successful candidate will have: demonstrable research excellence and ambition appropriate to Assistant Professor; evidence of a growing set of impact and engagement activities; an ability to connect their research to general research themes within IPE.

Post 2: Assistant Professor in International Political Economy (Quantitative methods).

All research interests will be considered. The key criterion for this post is evidence of the deployment of quantitative methods in research. We are not prescriptive about the forms this specialism might take. It might involve the statistical analysis of any kind of data, research into quantitative methodologies, or fieldwork-focused research to generate new data. The successful candidate will also have: demonstrable research excellence and ambition appropriate to Assistant Professor; evidence of a growing set of impact and engagement activities; an ability to connect their research to general research themes within IPE.

These posts offer an exciting opportunity to make a major contribution to the development of internationally excellent research and teaching while allowing you unrivalled opportunities to progress and embed your career in an exciting and progressive institution. 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.
