The School of Politics and International Relations is delighted to announce that it wishes to appoint three new lecturers for September 2018.

Applicants must have a developing reputation for internationally excellent research and an established record of high quality publications. For one post (QMUL13344), we seek to build on our existing strengths in International Relations by recruiting a scholar specialising in one or more of the following: war, militarisation and US foreign policy. For the other two posts (QMUL13345), we are keen to receive applications from scholars with regional and/or comparative expertise (China, South Asia, Russia, Eurasia, Southern/South East Europe). For one of the positions we seek an academic with expertise in quantitative methods. The appointees will be expected to deliver teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The posts are full time and permanent. Starting salary will be in the range £40,865 - £43,152 per annum inclusive of London Allowance. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, defined benefit pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.

We particularly welcome applications from women and ethnic minority candidates, as they are currently under-represented in the School. The School currently has a bronze award from the Athena SWAN Charter Scheme, and seeks to provide an inclusive working environment, including a ‘core-hours’ policy and an automatic period of research leave for colleagues returning from long-term parental leave.
